How to protect against DNS tunneling and other advanced threats

In four months, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will go into effect, but how many organisations will be ready? According to Gartner, not many: “By the end of 2018, over 50% of companies affected by the GDPR will not be in full compliance with its requirements.”


Why SDP Replaces Remote Access VPN

Software-defined perimeter security represents the future for remote access

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Dan Shelton, Director of Product Management, Zscaler, Inc.

The software defined perimeter (SDP) is a new approach to securing access to internal applications. It relies on software, not VPN hardware appliances, to deliver zero trust access for remote users. This method allows enterprises to use a single solution standardize remote access security for all users (employees of third party) and platforms, scale them more economically while reducing the potential attack surface.

Now users can receive a cloud-like user experience, and admins remain in control of their environment.

Secure remote access without the pitfalls of VPN's

Delivering the experience users demand with the security IT needs

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

Despite its notoriously poor user experience for both users and admins, the remote access VPN has remained the standard for remote access to internally managed applications.
