The Intersection of Confidential Computing and Zero Trust

June 5, 2:45 PM - 3:15 PM
Imperial Room B

Zero Trust implementations have been challenging due to the complexity of applying end-to-end least privilege access across enterprises’ digital infrastructure. While Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) and other access solutions have made great progress in verifying the access request, there is still a gap in verifying the network resource being accessed. Ironically, this lack of two-way verification forces many organizations to implicitly trust their computing resources – violating Zero Trust's central tenet of no implicit trust.

Confidential Computing, such as Intel Trust Services, provides workload verification as part of an end-to-end Zero Trust architecture –facilitating a "never trust, always verify" security strategy. Intel offers hardware-based isolation and encryption for attestation of computing confidentiality and integrity at scale. When used with SASE and other access solutions, Intel Confidential Computing solutions help ensure that every access attempt is thoroughly verified – from end-to-end.

Join us to understand how Intel Trust Services, Zero Trust, and Confidential Computing intersect to create a robust security framework. Discover best practices for implementing these technologies and safeguarding your data against modern threats.
