It feels like much longer now, but it was just over a year ago when Proofpoint joined forces with three other leading security companies (CrowdStrike, Netskope and Okta) in the Spectra Alliance to create an integrated solution that would help make the shift to remote work as simple and secure as possible. Over the last year, the Spectra Alliance has grown beyond this core focus of securing the remote workforce to building out a framework and integrations that will help organizations accelerate their journey to Zero Trust.
To help all our customers better understand their paths to Zero Trust, the Spectra Alliance has created an on-demand webinar titled, "Your Journey to Zero Trust: What You Wish You Knew Before You Started." In this joint webinar, a panel of executive leaders from each of the four Spectra Alliance partners discusses the critical role that Zero Trust plays in security modernization and explores the factors organizations should consider, the approaches and options available, and recommendations to begin their journey to Zero Trust.
For example, one factor to consider is that scoping Zero Trust generally involves six key elements: identities, devices, applications, data, networks and infrastructure. While not all six are always mandatory, the Spectra Alliance has developed a framework around these elements to help you better understand each one and how each partner and our integrations can help you realize a Zero Trust outcome.
As part of our Zero Trust strategy, Proofpoint provides email and web security, browser isolation, cloud access security broker, enterprise data loss prevention, security service edge and zero trust network access.
