Join Us Live: Three Secrets to Stopping Ransomware Cold

September 23, 2020 - 3 min read

Zscaler will be hosting a webinar covering ransomware's ins and outs and what you can do to keep your organization safe. Learn more and secure your spot here. 

Ransomware continues to dominate headlines worldwide, with recent estimates surpassing $20 billion of damages in 2020 alone. Today’s adversaries are using a diverse set of methodologies to attack each target and easily bypass legacy security solutions. While ransomware can cause serious damage and disruption to a business’s networks, finances, and reputation, we assure you that it’s not all doom and gloom—if you know the secrets to stopping these attacks. 

We’ll be discussing all of that at our upcoming virtual event, The Three Secrets to Stopping Ransomware Cold, and I hope you’ll join us. I’ll be joined by Deepen Desai, CISO and VP of Security Research at Zscaler, and Tony Fergusson, our Director of Transformation Strategy. The three of us have spent years analyzing and combating ransomware, and we’ll dive into new techniques attackers are using to avoid detection, trick users, and coerce organizations into paying (it’s not just about losing data anymore). We’ll also explore the best ways to protect your enterprise from these highly disruptive attacks. 

The session will cover:

  • How the latest ransomware campaigns exploit security weaknesses
  • How ransomware hides inside encrypted traffic to bypass inspection 
  • What it takes to sandbox suspicious files effectively
  • Why cloud scalability can close security gaps
  • How a zero trust approach to connectivity eliminates your attack surface

Ransomware isn’t going away—it is however getting more disruptive, more impactful, and more expensive. Legacy tools do not have the inspection capabilities to keep up with the demands of inspecting all traffic, quarantining threats at scale without performance dips, or delivering the always-on security necessary to defend today’s remote workforce. Zscaler, on the other hand, has already helped thousands of customers prevent ransomware and other cyberattacks using the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange, the world’s largest inline security platform built for the cloud.

Live webinar dates and times:

  • America: Tuesday, September 29, 2020 | 11:00 AM PT | 2:00 PM ET
  • EMEA: Wednesday, September 30, 2020 | 10:00 AM BEST | 11:00 AM CEST
  • APAC: Wednesday, September 30, 2020 | 10:00 AM IST | 2:30 PM AEST

Register today for one of these sessions. We look forward to seeing you there!
