Everywhere Security: Lessons in How to Secure Employees, Applications, and Networks

Everywhere Security: Lessons in How to Secure Employees, Applications, and Networks

Cloudflare discusses their own security evolution and the advantages of consolidating security into a single platform, powered by an intelligent global network.
Employees, applications, and infrastructure exist everywhere today – across geographies, cloud environments, and hybrid work settings.

Managing this sprawling attack surface is challenging, and the wrong IT and security strategy can add complexity, inhibit productivity, and ultimately hold your business back.

In response, many modern enterprises are shifting their IT and security controls to a unified cloud platform that can deliver consistent, fast, and rigorous protections everywhere.

Cloudflare helps customers reimagine their security approach to protect employees, applications, and networks – and is on that same strategic journey itself.

Join senior Cloudflare leaders Maha Pula (VP, Global Head of Solutions Engineering) and Jacqueline Keith (Senior Manager, Security Engagement) as they discuss:

  • Common challenges and pitfalls organizations face when modernizing security
  • Lessons learned from Cloudflare’s own security evolution
  • The advantages of consolidating security onto a single platform, powered by an intelligent global network
