! I think is a continuation of the work the Jericho Forum123 was doing back in the early mid 00’s when talking about perimeter-less networks and open-network environments. I think Google is doing some fascinating and useful work here and they are self-dog fooding. I expect they have all the data to prove their point of view. I’m doubtful that many CISO are ready to embrace this and even if they are, maybe reluctant to bring it before their organizations’s board.
