Securely Delight Your Customers with Okta Devices

Tanvir Ahmed, Okta
Aakash Mehta, Okta

As the world increases towards a mobile-centric digital landscape, providing differentiated security and user experience across mobile and digital channels is pivotal. In this session, we will explore End to End Device use-cases using Okta devices SDK, API, Device Grant Flow story touching upon how Okta enables you to securely authenticate/transact on various devices. We plan to also touch upon some of the upcoming work for the SDK, Transactional MFA etc. We hope customers get a good understanding of how to leverage Okta in their overall CIAM unmanaged device strategy. This session will likely include a MVP demo using the devices SDK.

After all, who couldn't use a little therapy session every now and then?

How Zoom Secures the Infrastructure That Powers the World with Okta ASA

Ben Sabrin, Okta
Zak Peirce, Head of Operations, Zoom

Infrastructure scaling events like what Zoom encountered in 2020 are scary to face for the security and operations teams responsible. Thankfully for the entire world, the team came through. One area where they couldn’t compromise was security. In this session, learn why Zoom chose Okta Advanced Server Access as a critical component of their cloud architecture, and how Okta was able to remove barriers to automation faster than hopping from one remote call to another.

Automating Identity Across Dynamic Infrastructure with Okta ASA

Snegha Ramnarayanan, Okta
Joe Armstrong, Senior DevOps Engineer, Doximity

Learn how Doximity, an online networking service for medical professionals, utilizes Okta Advanced Server Access to automate least privilege access controls across dynamic auto-scaling environments on AWS. From server lifecycle management to centralized logging, hear about API best practices and deployment strategies that have made their infrastructure management much easier and more secure as they scale. 

Mobile Worker Security or User Experience - How About Both?

Jason Georgi, Global Field CTO for Prisma Access, Palo Alto Networks

Remote working is here to stay, even if how it looks will change over time. It's time to get serious about treating remote access as a primary means of accessing company resources, making security and end user experience compromises unrealistic. Future-proofing your mobile worker strategy is critical - with true Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) and digital experience management (DEM), Palo Alto Networks is redefining cloud-delivered security for the next generation of mobile work.

Your Connection Is Not Secure: Restoring Trust to a Work Anywhere World

Ryan Kalember, EVP of Cybersecurity Strategy, Proofpoint

While the steady drumbeat of bad news made cybersecurity often feel hopeless this past year, the outlines of a better future clearly emerged. The threat landscape still targets people and their digital identities, relies heavily on social engineering, and preys on the connections we make in the cloud. The path forward flows through the same channels: putting people and digital identity at the center of our security strategies.

Join Ryan Kalember, Proofpoint’s EVP of cybersecurity strategy, as he delves into:

  • How attacks on people have evolved, and where they’re likely to go next
  • How organizations are winning the battle against cybercrime with people-centric controls
  • What a more secure future looks like

How to Achieve Zero Trust Data Protection in the Cloud

Jason Clark, Chief Strategy Officer, Netskope
Dustin Wilcox, Vice-President and Chief Information Security Officer, Anthem

As a critical building block of a true Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) architecture, Zero Trust Data Protection delivers security based on context and continuous risk management, allowing conditional access controls to be defined based on data sensitivity, app risk, user behavior risk, and other factors. 

Join Netskope and Anthem to learn why data protection is about context, managing data access based on who the user is and what the user is trying to do. Learn how to apply Zero Trust principles to update ineffective approaches to DLP, protect data in the cloud, and make the right investments to achieve the most effective SASE architecture for networking and security.

Challenge the Rules of Security with Chrome Enterprise and Okta

Carlos Marin, Chrome Product Manager, Google
Marcus Koehler, PM Chrome OS Enterprise, Google

With the dramatic increase in distributed workforces and the growing adoption of cloud applications, companies face unprecedented levels of IP, data, and identity sprawl beyond the enterprise firewall. Every endpoint is an entry into your business, cybercriminals have more ways to break in than ever before, and human error on the inside is a constant risk. Historically, endpoint security has been a zero-sum game—with the odds inevitably stacked against IT. But rather than protect devices, what if you could just control the security of them?

In this session, see how Chrome OS and Chrome Browser provide proactive protection for users, devices, applications, and data, wherever work happens. Learn how zero trust security models combine identity and Chrome to help put IT ahead of the game.

Secure Collaboration and Workflows Among Distributed Teams with Box

Lakshmi Hanspal, Global CISO, Box
Tiffany Benton, Bain Capital

Cloud security and privacy is growing increasingly complex. Adopting cloud technologies, and creating a secure, frictionless, collaborative environment helps people achieve more by doing less. In this session, learn how Box is powering collaboration for customers and employees with a zero-trust model, even when they do come back to the office.

The Anywhere Employee Workspace

Steven D’Sa, VMware
Greg Armanini, VMware

In addition to hearing about how other organizations take advantage of workspaces, you will get deployment tips from VMware experts.

Zero Trust Delivered by the Cloud with CrowdStrike

Jeannie Warner. Director of Product Marketing, CrowdStrike

Zero Trust is a security framework requiring all users, whether in or outside the organization’s network, to be authenticated, authorized, and continuously validated for security configuration and posture before being granted or keeping access to applications and data. 

The basic principles of Zero Trust per NIST 800-207:  

  1. Continuous verification of all entities trying to access a resource via dynamic policy
  2. Use of behavioral analysis, static hygiene information, and attack patterns combined with policies
  3. Analysis of information from the IT “stack” including user, workload, endpoint to create risk scores and threat graph
  4. Enforce segmentation and least privilege principles

Most organizations who have not started on Zero Trust blame the complexity, as they’re often managing over 130+ security tools. Adding more just makes the employees miserable.

But is there a simpler way?

Jeannie Warner, CISSP will share how CrowdStrike’s Zero Trust approach for endpoint, workload, and identity, along with the technical partnership with Okta, make Zero Trust simpler and more cost efficient to manage – fast.
