Ann Johnson, corporate vice president for security, compliance and identity at Microsoft, says that with the increase in zero-trust adoption, organizations have more flexibility around access. She discusses the benefits that come with increased use of multi-factor authentication, virtual desktops and cloud platforms.
However, Johnson cautions that with these emerging technologies, organizations will have to be more vigilant around the supply chain. Everything about security is a risk-based decision, she says. That is why leaders should look to automation to remediate low level tasks, and behavioral analytics to help their teams identify anomalies.
