Why your next gen branch firewall should be a cloud firewall

DATE: Thursday, June 29th, 2017 | Americas - 08:30 am PDT (16:30 pm UK, 17:30 pm CET)

GUEST SPEAKER: Dr. Sri Subramanian, Sr. Director, Product Management, Zscaler, Inc.

HOST: Jen Toscano, Sr. Product Marketing Manager, Zscaler, Inc.

You want to create a fast and secure experience for your branch users. Cloud applications, like Office 365, are being rapidly adopted and are designed to be accessed directly via the Internet. To securely embrace cloud apps and services and deliver a fast user experience, Internet traffic needs to be routed locally. But how can you establish secure direct Internet connections without backhauling and without without duplicating stacks of security appliances at each branch?

Please join Dr. Sri Subramanian, Sr. Director of Product Management and Jen Toscano, Sr. Product Marketing Manager as they discuss how Zscaler Cloud Firewall enables fast and secure local Internet breakouts, and delivers next generation firewall capabilities, including security and access controls for Internet traffic on all ports, and security that follows the user to provide identical protection no matter where they connect.

What Comes After VPN?

In the direct-to-Internet world, the old approach to secure access won't work

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Denzil Wessels, Senior Director Product Management, Zscaler, Inc.

Virtual Private Networks, the de facto standard for employee and third-party access to internal applications, were designed almost twenty years ago to make users feel as if they were on the corporate network.Unfortunately, the VPN process creates a terrible user experience, regardless of whether applications are on a public cloud (Azure, AWS) or in the corporate data center. IT is forced to resort to “unnatural acts of networking” to segment and secure valuable assets, creating a cumbersome solution that no one would choose if they were building it from scratch.The problem is that no one has built a viable alternative to the VPN… Until now. Zscaler Private Access is what comes next in the world of secure access to internal applications.

In this webcast our keynote speakers from Forrester and Zscaler will explain how IT teams must evolve their approach to security based on new network models and data flows. We will also share details from Forrester's Security and Risk playbook and the necessary shift in investments to support application access transformation. We will conclude this webcast by discussing recent innovations in the Zscaler cloud security platform which support the Zero Trust Model.

 

Advanced Threat Hunting

Finding a Needle in a stack of Needles

Do you have what it takes to find today’s Advanced Persistent Threats? Current cyberattacks employ a range of techniques that often make them invisible to traditional security controls. With SSL threats on the rise, and hackers getting more and more creative on how they deliver threats, advanced threats can easily hide in plain sight. Finding and stopping these complex attacks takes a complete platform approach. Attend this webcast to discuss the latest attack trends, and best practices you can employ to bolster your security.

 

Cloud vs. On-Premises Security: Can you afford not to switch?

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Jason Georgi, Director of the Transformation Office, Zscaler, Inc.

As the cloud transforms enterprise IT, it brings a lot more savings than cold hard cash. No question, reducing infrastructure costs is the #1 attraction to cloud. But there are two other cost dimensions with huge impact on security that must not be ignored. The payoffs depend on whether you approach security with a cloud vs. on-premises model. An organization’s choices are crucial – both for enterprise security and for the roles of its stakeholders. Join this webinar as we compare three cloud vs. on-premises cost considerations.
