Topic: Cybersecurity, Compliance and Network Infrastructure Operations –  Redefined

In his speech, Nik Pruthi will highlight how every organization – whether small, medium, or large – can redefine their operations to support their ability to scale to greater heights. The talk will address a solution to the increasing problem every organization has today: attempting to manage, operate, and scale a disjointed and disunified architecture consisting of a multiplicity of varied networks (WAN, LAN, Data Centers, Cloud Services, Internet Communications, Service Mesh, and more). He will discuss how organizations can move to a next-generation unified architecture to modernize their infrastructure and ensure secure and stable growth.
