Digital Defense for the Enterprise

Digital transformation and the adoption of hybrid cloud solutions are increasing complexity and disrupting the architecture of networks, to the point that the traditional enterprise perimeter has effectively disappeared. Given this situation, why are companies still focused on defending the perimeter with wall and moat strategies? And what strategies should replace them?

Fortinet will lead an evening of discussions surrounding the importance of an enterprise-wide digital defense to meet the security challenges of today’s computing environment. This is an opportunity for you to network with your IT peers while you enjoy a fine dining experience.

Register now to join us.
