Growing use of hosted and hybrid cloud solutions has provided huge scalability and cost benefits to organizations of every size, but there are also new challenges that come with the modern, expanded perimeter. The zero-trust methodology was developed to address these challenges, and Duo Security’s zero-trust secure access allows organizations to build comprehensive policies that apply to every user, on every device and network, for every application.
While this greatly reduces the risk of account takeover by lost or stolen credentials, the zero-trust model applies to more than access security alone. Duo has partnered with BioConnect, a leading provider of integrated, enterprise-ready identity-based solutions for physical access.
Join BioConnect’s CISO Courtney Gibson, Duo’s Amanda Rogerson and Ginger Leishman, and special customer guests Eli Bloomstein from Uber and Mark Houpt from Databank for a roundtable discussion on securing access from the endpoint to the entry door.
