4:15 – 5:00 Presentation: The Past, Present and Future of Strong Authentication
Ashwin Rana, Chief Solutions Architect, Beyond Identity
Authentication is a foundational element of every cybersecurity program. With more than 80% of data breaches and a large portion of ransomware incidents stemming from credential-based attacks (e.g., phishing, credential stuffing, RDP brute, etc.), it has become clear that passwords are a fatally flawed authentication method.
Ashwin has served as Chief Technical Architect at Zscaler, Director of Product Management at Nokia Networks, Senior Director of System Architecture and Product Management at AudioCodes, Inc., Director of Product Management at Netrake, among others. Ashwin received a bachelor’s degree in electrical and electronics engineering from Sardar Patel University and a master’s degree in electrical, electronics, and communications engineering from The University of Texas at Dallas.
