How SASE and NDR Complement Each OtherNetWitness Experts Speak About SASE Maturity, Cloud Strategy and Network Visibility
To get the right security tools for your hybrid environment, it is important to have clarity about your cloud strategy, experts from NetWitness said. While the pandemic forced businesses to be on the cloud, they are now in a stage where they are rethinking their cloud strategies.
"We have all jumped on a bandwagon of cloud-first strategy, and the pandemic accelerated it. But we are now getting to a state where a lot of organizations are taking a step back and asking themselves, 'What is the best journey for me?'" said Roman Tuma, chief revenue officer at NetWitness.
"There are organizations which do have a clear strategy for cloud, and there are organizations which are still trying to figure it out," he said.
Most organizations face the challenge of integrating SASE with NDR mainly because of vendor compatibility issues. "Customers should have the ability to choose whichever vendor they want. We want to make sure that we integrate with all players so that customers have the choice to integrate different SASE players with NDR," said JP Yu, vice president of sales, APJ at NetWitness.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, Tuma and Yu discussed:
- The level of SASE maturity in APAC and India;
- How to balance privacy and network visibility;
- How NDR helps in meeting key tenets of SASE.
Tuma has more than 23 years of experience in the cybersecurity sector. He was previously vice president of IBM Security and IBM Hybrid Cloud, where his responsibilities included driving sales and revenue growth, optimizing profitability and delivering technical support. Before IBM, Tuma worked at tech companies such as Oracle, Sun Microsystems and ActivCard.
