In a nut-shell, the concept of a Zero Trust Security Architecture has been around for more than a decade, but adoption did not really begin to take hold until the past couple of years. Zero Trust is a framework for securing organizations in the cloud, on-premises and mobile world that asserts that no user or application should be trusted by default. Following a key zero trust principle, least-privileged access, trust is established based on context (e.g., user identity and location, the security posture of the endpoint, the app or service being requested) with policy checks at each step.

Zero Trust Architecture is an alternative security model that addresses the fundamental flaw of traditional strategies that data only needs to be protected from outside of an organization. The Zero Trust model views data security through a new lens, enabling parameters that dictate access and restrictions.

Understand how segmentation gateway provides granular visibility into traffic and enforces additional layers of inspection and access control with granular Layer 7 policy based on the Kipling Method.
Zero Trust is an augmentation of your existing architecture, it does not require a complete technology overhaul. Rather, it can be deployed iteratively while allowing you to take advantage of the tools and technologies you already have.

When organizations shifted toward accelerated digital transformation to the cloud, the VPN became a bottleneck that was impossible to scale. This is where the need for having a Software Defined Parameter (SDP) arises.

In this massive shift to cloud applications and digital transformation,  Cloud Access Security Brokers emerged. CASBs aim to mitigate risks around cloud assets when users access those assets from inside the organization's perimeter.

CASB vs. SASE both offer benefits to enterprises depending on the situation and conditions. 
A CASB solution can be deployed as a standalone framework that easily integrates into an enterprise s existing security architecture. 
However, SASE is increasingly seen as the preferred option as it builds on CASB capabilities while simplifying security and maximizing the efficiency of a company s IT and security architecture under an Hybrid Model.

The training course flow will be a mix of lectures & classroom discussions so that participants can have a detailed understanding of various components of cybersecurity technologies.


This workshop shall be delivered by TOGAF 9 Certified/IBM Certified Infrastructure System Architect and an experienced trainer with 25+ years of career experience imparting education and training services both locally and internationally and have worked for international enterprise technology vendors including IBM, Fujitsu, and ICL.
