24 Mar OPAQ and onShore to Present Free Webinar on Benefits of Moving Enterprise Security to the Network Edge
Experts will Explain How to Implement Zero Trust Policy Enforcement and Controls for Hybrid, Multi-Cloud and Telework Environments
HERNDON, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#ITchannel–OPAQ, the SASE network company, announced today that it will co-present an educational webinar with onShore Security on March 31 that explains the security challenges created by digital transformation of IT infrastructures to support hybrid and multi-cloud adoption and telework. Experts from both companies will also discuss the benefits of moving security policy enforcement and inspection engines to the edge of the network and closer to users with a new architecture called secure access service edge or SASE.

With the adoption of multi-cloud infrastructures and applications, and the rise in user mobility and remote work, the traditional data center-centric approach to network security is quickly becoming obsolete. Centralized security inspection and enforcement architectures are struggling to support loads they were not designed to bear, impacting user experience and productivity with latency, increasing networking costs, and creating complex, time-consuming management of endpoint software and security. This webinar will discuss the shortcomings of current network security models and the advantages of moving security to the edge using a Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) approach that enables organizations to implement Zero Trust controls.
