While we can’t predict the future, we are all trying our best to prepare for what comes next—in our lives and our careers. One strategy for getting prepared to meet the future and succeed in it is pursuing education and training.
With education, we become empowered to improve ourselves and further our value to our companies. For most of us in the rapidly changing fields of networking and cybersecurity, our education continues on a daily basis—in and out of the office.
That’s why we are excited to offer certification training, once again, as part of Zenith Live. In addition to sessions that cover timely topics—securing a mobile workforce, using Gartner’s zero trust network access (ZTNA) guidelines, optimizing Office 365, using AI and ML in security, and much more—you’ll have the opportunity to join us in an immersive, full-day session in one of three tracks: application transformation, network transformation, and security transformation.
These one-day technical courses contain a mixture of lecture and hands-on labs. Two of the tracks offer “essentials” programs for those getting started with Zscaler; all three tracks offer “Masters” programs for experienced users who want to explore more capabilities and use cases.
ZPA Essentials (New or existing ZPA Administrators)
Get hands-on experience using Zscaler Private Access and Zscaler App to provide secure remote access to applications in the data center and public cloud as an alternative to VPN. Completing this lab along with the associated online training (included with your Zenith Live training registration) grants the ZCCP-PA certification.
ZPA Masters (Existing ZPA administrators – ZCCP-PA certification recommended)
Building on ZPA Essentials, this deep-dive lab will focus on advanced Zscaler Private Access use cases, including shadow IT discovery of private apps, securing third-party access, and integrating multiple IDPs for mergers and acquisitions.
ZIA Networking Masters (Network teams deploying SD-WAN and/or Zscaler App)
In this hands-on lab, we will do a deep dive into setting up authentication utilizing Zscaler’s new SCIM support, traffic forwarding with leading SD-WAN partners for secure local internet breakouts, and Zscaler App for secure mobile access.
ZIA Security Essentials (Security teams)
This lab is a combination of classroom instruction and in-depth exploration of Zscaler cloud security services, including SSL inspection, as well as threat coverage best practices and threat hunting exercises using the Zscaler Admin UI.
ZIA Security Masters (Security operations team)
Building on ZIA Security Essentials, this advanced workshop, run by our Zscaler ThreatLabZ research team, will consist of a series of hands-on labs, including using APIs to integrate Zscaler alerts and information into SOC workflows and orchestration, threat hunting, and reconstructing the kill chain after a simulated attack.
LAS VEGAS: MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 16 | 8:00 AM TO 5:00 PM (the day before the Zenith Live conference opens)
LISBON: WEDNESDAY, 02 OCTOBER | 8:00 TO 17:00 (the day after the Zenith Live conference closes)
The move to the cloud has become a major business priority and one that’s difficult and disruptive, particularly for networking and IT security teams. With the certification training offered at Zenith Live 2019, you can gain the skills and knowledge you need to help propel your company into a more secure and agile future through a successful cloud migration.
Bill Gates once said: “As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.” This is your opportunity to become the leader that your organization needs.
