Now more than ever, your enterprise’s communications run on IP networks, thanks to remote work and the explosive growth of collaboration platforms. That means IP network security is your concern as an IT communications/collaboration specialist. In this session, the industry’s leading expert on IP networking will help you understand how the “attack surface” has spread as communications and collaboration traffic has moved onto home networks, the Internet, and corporate networks to an unprecedented degree since the start of the pandemic. You’ll learn how network automation can enhance your security posture, and where typical areas of network vulnerability intersect with the ways that communications/collaboration traffic is deployed and moves around enterprise IP networks. You’ll come away from this session better able to work with your enterprise’s network security organization to minimize the risk that communications/collaboration systems open up for networks.

  • How does network automation allow IT to provide better security, and how do you do automation right?
