Who the Webinar is For
Are you a decision-maker in your company’s IT, networking, or cybersecurity departments? Is your organization planning a move to SASE? Or already in the process of moving to SASE? If so, this webinar is for you.
ESG surveyed and researched hundreds of professionals in your industry to better understand why SASE is being made a priority, how teams are rolling out their SASE strategies, and what to look out for along the way.
The information in this webinar is valuable for anyone interested in the convergence of security and networking made possible by SASE.
What You Will Learn
During this webinar, Dinha and Grady look at the results of an in-depth survey of 613 cybersecurity, networking, and IT professionals about SASE. Dinha provides his perspective on SASE and ZTNA in the context of OpenVPN Cloud, a cloud-delivered as-a-service solution.
This sort of quantitative research is ESG’s speciality. The survey is representative of North America and western Europe and included businesses of all sizes across a variety of industries.
Dinha and Grady explore what the survey uncovered about:
- What’s driving organizations’ interest and move towards SASE.
- To what extent organizations are using zero trust network access tools and how this aligns with SASE strategies.
- The most critical attributes organizations should look for when considering a SASE solution.
