Bill Welch, veteran software industry executive, joins Zscaler as Vice President of Global Sales and Chief Revenue Officer to scale the company’s sales and channel organizations and accelerate growth worldwide.
"I know a number of people who are concerned that we don't have definitive proof to give proper attribution to the attack, but in cases like this we rarely have all the evidence we need to provide attribution," noted Michael Sutton, vice president of security search for Zscaler. "I do think that while we don't have conclusive proof -- the FBI hasn't been that transparent with us -- I do think North Korea remains the most viable suspect in this attack," Sutton said.
One of the biggest security problems when it comes to mobile technology is that of the retail store and the branch office. To that end, Cradlepoint and Zscaler got together to introduce a new breed of hybrid solution that takes the best of a cloud-based solution and matches it with parts of an on-premise solution to deliver powerful, yet useful, protection.
Yesterday at the 2015 NRF Conference (National Retail Federation), Cradlepoint has announced the availability of the long awaited Zscaler Internet Security integration. Developed as a joint program between Cradlepoint and Zscaler, this advanced protection monitors data breaches, ensures PCI compliance, and helps remote offices by running a single threat management solution. Built into enterprise routers like the MBR1200, MBR1400, AER 2100, and COR IBR, this is both a rapidly deployed, and easily managed, threat protection solution.
In late November, Sony Pictures Entertainment was hacked by a group calling itself Guardians of the Peace (GOP). What initially appeared to be another hacktivist attack, later turned out to be a sophisticated operation possibly orchestrated by a state actor. Zscaler’s Michael Sutton weighs in.
