The industry is steadily shifting from an old and outdated password authentication model to identity with biometrics. This is a good thing. But we can’t stop there. Our devices, themselves, also need a true identity, an identity that can’t be faked or stolen. With an estimated 22% (32.6 million) of the American workforce working remotely by 2025, the continued evolution of secure remote access needs to include the devices that provide the access.

For IT organizations, infrastructure access from global engineers also needs to be taken into consideration. Devices from all over the globe are requesting access to critical servers, databases, Kubernetes clusters and applications. How do we efficiently trust these devices and the users behind them?

In this talk, we’ll discuss the importance of device trust and how it can be achieved using a platform like Teleport to lock down the devices accessing your sensitive company information.  We’ll cover some of the benefits, like easy and secure offboarding, through to the steps needed to properly enforce registration of devices and — more importantly — enrollments.
