The way we secure workloads today is vastly different due to remote work and the move to the cloud following the pandemic. More modern SASE solutions such as zero trust have been adopted, and organizations are moving from legacy such as MPLS to software-defined networking and cloud-based solutions.

This transition is a process that needs a trusted adviser and appropriate services to provide flexibility. Lumen continues to innovate and expand its SASE platform, which is positioned to aid that digital automated journey as a software solution or a service that's completely digital, if that is desired.

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2023, Wolner discusses:

  • How the way in which organizations secure workloads has changed;
  • Challenges in the move to software-defined networking and cloud - and how to overcome them;
  • Why you need to choose trusted partners for your transformation journey.

Wolner delivers product and market innovation leadership in the SASE, SD-WAN, cybersecurity and cloud space. He helps maximize shareholder value through his knowledge of technological and business fundamentals used to create breakthrough offerings for global, enterprise and federal government and public sector channels.
