"Zero trust began as a concept of zero trust network access, which was initially meant to replace VPNs. One of the biggest aspects of VPNs is that it gives access to your entire network," Dubey says.
"Thankfully, the zero trust network access has successfully replaced VPNs today. Now the technology is such that even unmanaged devices can access your office network securely."
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at ISMG's Cybersecurity Summit in Bengaluru, Dubey also discusses:
- The five pillars for easy implementation of a SASE framework;
- How zero trust can play a vital role in reducing security complexities;
- How to control access to cloud and private apps.
Dubey is responsible for managing the midmarket business in India and the channels for India and SAARC. He is a cybersecurity expert with over 24 years of experience in the IT industry and has worked at Blue Coat Systems, Sun Microsystems and Aventail.
