Insight from the Front Lines: Zscaler ThreatLabZ to Give Keynote at Zenith Live

April 28, 2021 - 4 min read

We’re excited to announce that Zscaler ThreatLabZ will be a part of our keynote lineup at this year’s Zenith Live on June 15 and 16. Backed by the world’s largest security cloud, Zscaler ThreatLabZ is our internal research team dedicated to uncovering and investigating emerging threats, while educating the cybersecurity world about how to protect against them. A global team of security experts, researchers, networking experts, and computer scientists, ThreatLabZ is responsible for analyzing and eliminating threats across the Zscaler security cloud, as well as keeping a finger on the pulse of the world’s threat landscape—with the intent of making the internet safer for all.

What you can expect from ThreatLabZ at Zenith Live

Our renowned ThreatLabZ experts will present in-depth research into emerging threats discovered with the Zscaler cloud, which processes nearly 2 million transactions per second. During the keynote, Deepen Desai, CISO and VP of Security Research and Operations at Zscaler, will dissect recent attack chains, including what types of attacks are trending, why these attacks are becoming more prominent, and what you can do to protect your organization from them. This presentation includes a close look at threats targeting supply chains, Microsoft exchange servers, ransomware, and more. 

You’ll also get an exclusive preview into Zscaler’s disruptive protection suite that unifies our industry-leading threat intelligence, world-class experts, and innovative technology to give you peace of mind from the most advanced attackers.

Because Zscaler security is cloud-delivered, we have the unique ability to analyze every byte of traffic routed to our cloud before it’s sent back to the user. This ability to handle massive amounts of traffic without latency enables us to automatically and accurately track attack trends by threat type, location, threat actor type, among other criteria. Because of this, ThreatLabZ has put together a series of dashboards that can be found publicly on our site

These dashboards provide a real-time view into the number of transactions processed by the Zscaler Cloud, policies enforced, and threats blocked. At any moment, hundreds of thousands of concurrent events are being managed by Zscaler cloud security, with billions of activities collected and processed daily.

Let’s take a closer look at some of the aspects that comprise the global threat landscape we are tracking.
