The global pandemic has pushed a large percentage of employees into the remote workforce. What should your organization be doing to ensure data and digital assets stay secure? How can you leverage Microsoft 365, Azure and Windows 10 to create a strong Zero Trust security environment for your users and data?
Zero Trust architecture has been around for many years and embodies this change, yet many organizations have not shifted from the old security models of the past. This has resulted in data loss, credential leak, millions in financial losses, and countless hours of lost productivity. And now that a large percentage of employees are working remotely and need access to highly sensitive enterprise applications, the challenges and risks are even greater.
During these three sessions, learn how your organization can leverage Microsoft 365, Azure, and Windows 10 to create a strong Zero Trust security environment for your users and data.
Why Zero Trust Security is Critical to a Remote Workforce
ln recent years, more and more workers have operated remotely. Road Warriors have been granted greater access when away from the office, providing improvements in productivity and responsiveness. With the recent increase in the number of remote workers, organizations are reviewing security policies in light of increased attacks on their remote infrastructure.
Zero Trust Security takes a different view of providing security. It requires a re-think of the tools and techniques used to grant access to data, while also protecting that data at rest, in transit, and on endpoint devices.
In this session, Oxford Computer Group Senior Consultant Sara Hawkins takes a look at what Zero Trust offers, and how to look anew at your infrastructure with an eye on providing better access, streamlining and rationalizing security, while enabling users’ productivity in a challenging environment.
Achieving Zero Trust and Simplifying Security with Microsoft 365 E5
Enterprise security in today’s world is complicated. To properly defend against the advanced threats which are in constant pursuit of your data and digital assets, a bevy of solutions is often necessary.
CASB, EDR, EM/MDM, SOAR, SIEM, DLP are just few of the acronyms in the solution alphabet soup that most modern enterprises need to have deployed, properly configured, and monitored by a team of security specialists. Is the best-in-breed approach, featuring point solutions from a variety of vendors, the best way to go? Or, is best-in-suite the answer?
In this session, Oxford Computer Group Principal Architect Frank Urena shows how the Microsoft 365 E5 security suite of products can help replace many of the point solutions offered by 3rd party vendors, and how they integrate to provide a complete end-to-end solution that closes many of the gaps found in disparate systems.
Tying the Microsoft Security Story Together
Microsoft has made amazing strides in the security space over the past decade. As the way organizations work has evolved, Microsoft has focused on the new ways of operating – on-premises and in the cloud. In this session, Oxford Computer Group Principal Architect Mark Riley looks at the components of Microsoft 365, Azure, and Windows 10 that enable Zero Trust, and how point solutions may be supplanted by an integrated, cloud-first approach to data management and modern security.
