Defining and Securing Your 'Protect Surface'
The ‘Protect Surface’, coined by John Kindervag, is elemental to executing a Zero Trust strategy – the idea is that instead of trying to protect the entire attack surface which now extends throughout the Internet, identify your key assets and make sure they are segmented within a small protected area with strong authentication access rules and controls, such as:
Segmentation Gateway as a Next-Gen Firewall
Access Enforcement at the Gateway
Applying Multi-Factor Authentication

The enemy of securing the Protect Surface? Complexity – the sheer number of overlapping tools in your stack, and the new ‘work from anywhere’ environment that introduces new vendors, new products … and new risks.

Please join ISMG’s Tom Field for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on how they can define and secure their ‘Protect Surface’.

Discussion topics will include:

  • Identifying your critical assets and segmenting a Protect Surface surrounding them
  • Reducing complexity and mitigating risk from all threat vectors now trying to access your resources


Joining Tom to provide expert insight and case studies is Victor Danevich, CTO System Engineering at Infoblox.
