phoenixNAP Webcast: Foundations of Zero-Trust Security Cloud Architecture

When:  Jan 14, 2021 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (CT)
The concept of “zero-trust security” has changed the approach to cloud architecture design, extending the focus from the perimeter-based security to the entire network.

Based on the principle “Never trust, always verify,” the zero-trust security model treats every request for network access inside a firewall as a suspicious activity. By removing trust between network nodes, this approach protects a cloud environment against east–west traffic or lateral-moving traffic inside the data center. The result is a reduced risk of network breach or disruption even in organizations and environments where hundreds or thousands of users are accessing the network remotely.

In this webinar, phoenixNAP’s EVP of Products, William Bell will talk about the foundation of zero trust security cloud architecture and best practices for its implementation. The session will particularly focus on the the capabilities of VMware NSX and its deployment on phoenixNAP’s secure cloud platform – Data Security Cloud.
