How to Maximize ROI with Frictionless Zero Trust

How to Maximize ROI with Frictionless Zero Trust

Date: Multiple Sessions

CrowdStrike Zero Trust Identity Protection

With recent high-profile breaches involving privileged user and service account compromises throughout the network, studies in Zero Trust have never been more timely. A full 80% of breaches involve credentials and identity, and it is clear that anyone can get hacked and have a persistent privileged user lurking somewhere on their network.

Zero Trust means looking at your environment in terms of assuming that compromises happen — but how can you add security to your identity store without having your users spend 5-10 minutes a day authenticating into their basic systems? And when you invest in a Zero Trust solution, can that solution reduce security complexity, save money, and reduce time to identify and remediate breaches?

The numbers do not lie. In this webcast, you’ll hear from industry experts on topics everyone can relate to:

  • Discover the real-life use cases for Zero Trust that affect your profit margin and overhead to support the whole program
  • Frost and Sullivan analyst Tony Massimini will share specific use cases and how they calculated savings of over $5M with a frictionless approach to Zero Trust
  • CrowdStrike VP of Identity Protection Kapil Raina will share customer examples of how security leaders stopped breaches with frictionless Zero Trust using their existing security budget

Attendees will have a chance to ask about the upcoming Frost and Sullivan white paper, “ROI Strategies with Frictionless Zero Trust,” which details the analysis of frictionless Zero Trust cost savings.
