The 12 Most Overhyped Cybersecurity Trends From RSA Conference 2020

Michael Novinson

CRN asks security CEOs, channel chiefs and technical leaders attending RSA Conference 2020 which cybersecurity trends seem to be more about sounding cutting-edge than keeping businesses safe.

Secure Access Service Edge

Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) is the modern-day equivalent of a VPN, connecting edge devices to the internet at a time when the network is disappearing and being replaced by the internet, according to Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO of Qualys. The need for SASE won’t last long since organizations are moving workloads into the cloud and the corporate network environment is shrinking, Courtot said.

As companies move more and more of their enterprise applications into the cloud, Courtot said the network will become just some wireless devices connected to the internet. Courtot said customers need to embrace digital transformation or else they won’t be in business for very long.

Many years ago, Courtot said the security industry’s resistance to the cloud was phenomenal, but today, people acknowledge that it’s not going anywhere.
