In Episode S4E14, Steve Bowcut talks about Zero Trust Network Access with two well-informed guests. On the show are two executives from the cybersecurity firm Syxsense, Mark Reed, CTO, and Dave Taylor, CMO.
The term Zero Trust is sometimes misapplied or misunderstood in the security industry, so our guests thoroughly describe what the term means and how they use it in their business.
Mark and Dave explain the role of a zero trust strategy in today’s endpoint protection and what it takes to be successful at zero trust, then talk about some of the challenges organizations face when implementing a Zero Trust strategy.
Steve gets them to elaborate on how the new module recently announced by Syxsense enables endpoint compliance with Zero Trust Network Access policies.
