Companies in the ASEAN region traditionally relied on VPNs for internet traffic encryption and user identity protection. However, a recent cyber attack targeting VPN vulnerabilities has raised concerns. The post-pandemic shift to remote and hybrid working in ASEAN countries poses new cyber security challenges. Cloudflare advocates a Zero Trust Security model to mitigate risks and offers a free trial of its Zero Trust Enterprise solution.

After reviewing the meeting notes, an executive summary can be generated as follows:

– The recent cyber attack targeting an established VPN service in the ASEAN region suggests a need for reevaluating reliance on VPN for internet security.
– The US CISA issued an emergency directive in January for Ivanti’s Connect Secure and Policy Secure Gateways due to a vulnerability, highlighting the critical nature of the issue.
– The remote and hybrid working trend in ASEAN countries post-pandemic has created new vulnerabilities and cyber security challenges, requiring attention from resident CISOs.
– Cloudflare advocates for replacing traditional VPN with a Zero Trust Security model, offering increased visibility and addressing configuration conflicts in distributed environments.
– Cloudflare Everywhere Security provides a unified, programmable platform for implementing Zero Trust security across Internet, applications, and corporate networks.
– For more insights into remote access security approaches and the benefits of Zero Trust network access (ZTNA), the Cloudflare white paper is recommended.
