“The concept of security needs to evolve from a fixed perimeter to a diffuse perimeter, where every identity is a perimeter that you need to secure,” he says in a video interview with Information Security Media Group. “And the same goes for applications. With applications and users being diffuse, the whole concept of security needs to come down to a single user accessing a single app.”
In advance of a series of virtual executive roundtable discussions in Singapore on Aug. 13, Hong Kong on July 08 and Malaysia on July 09, Banerjee discusses:
