Practitioners responsible for implementing zero trust security controls are some of the biggest skeptics when it comes to measuring the value of zero trust use cases and capabilities.

In order to make progress towards zero trust security, it’s critical to get everyone on board – from the most passionate executive to the most cynical security analyst. Listen to our experts talk through these challenges and how to gain consensus, referencing field data from more than 5,000 professionals whose organizations are embarking on zero trust.
