    Interview: Baber Amin, Ping Identity

    Topic: Zero Trust architecture

    Security has always been perimeter centric with an "US" vs "THEM" approach. Multiple factors are forcing a change to this design pattern, and exposing it's shortcomings. The concept of "zero trust" is really a concept of "defence in depth" applicable when our perimeters are ephemeral and fluid.

    Ward Cobleigh is the Sr. Product Manager at VIAVI Solutions

    Ward Cobleigh, Sr Product Manager for VIAVI Solutions, understands the balancing act between network ops and security that IT pros are facing today along with the challenges they have in solving issues due to limited visibility and complexity. His experience in engineering, product management plus design and marketing give him a unique ability to cut to the heart of the problem and demonstrate solutions that give engineers a sigh of relief. He brings a refreshing bit of humor to the dry, technical topic of network performance management and security threat hunting.
