Microsoft Tech Talks (MTT) | Trust No One! Implementing Zero Trust using Azure AD | Nashville


Wednesday - March 11, 2020 - 11:30AM - 1:00PM CDT


During this session, we will look at Microsoft’s approach to Zero Trust, as today the new perimeter isn’t defined by the physical location(s) of the organization, it now extends to every access points that hosts, stores, or access corporate resources and services. Zero Trust model assumes breaches and verifies each request is strongly authenticated, authorized within policy constraints and inspected for anomalies before granting access.
