Faster, Simpler, More Secure Remote Access to Apps in AWS

Improve user experience and simplify your move to AWS

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Patrick Foxhoven, CIO and VP Emerging Technologies, Zscaler, Inc.

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Sam Hennessey, Senior Solutions Architect, Amazon Web Services

Although 60% of enterprises now run apps on AWS, the user experience for remote users is typically slow as most traffic is still tunneled through their data center breaking the cloud experience. A secure direct-to-cloud remote access experience without a VPN enables enterprises to migrate their legacy apps to AWS by delivering fast app access and policy-based security.


Accelerate the Migration to Microsoft Azure with Zscaler Private Access

Your apps are moving to Azure. Don’t let network security get in the way

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Lisa Lorenzin, Director of Emerging Technology Solutions, Zscaler, Inc.

GUEST SPEAKER: Sean Dastouri Senior Cloud Architect Microsoft Azure,

Many companies still try to rely on the network-centric methods of the old world (i.e remote access VPN), when apps ran only in the datacenter, to provide user-to-app connectivity. They're now recognizing that the complexity of appliances and the need to manage ACLs and FW policies will actually slow the move to Azure dramatically. It's time for a new approach. One built for the new world.

Adopting A Zero-Trust Model. Google Did It, Can You?

Change from old-world network-centric, to new-world user- and app-centric

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Ameet Jani, Product Manager, Google, LLC.

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Manoj Apte, Chief Stratagy officer, Zscaler, Inc.

Based on 6 years of creating zero trust networks at Google, the BeyondCorp framework has led to the popularization of a new network security model within enterprises, called the software-defined perimeter. It takes a fundamentally different approach to providing secure access to applications, doing away with the need for traditional perimeter-based network security like solutions like VPNs.

So what does this mean for enterprises not named Google, and how can they can adopt a similar security approach within their organization?



Top reasons Office 365 deployments fail

Pilots may go well, but rollouts can be a different story

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Steve House, Vice President, Product Management, Zscaler, Inc.

Microsoft Office 365 is unlike any other SaaS application and, even with careful planning, it’s fair to say that deployments don’t always go as planned. Office 365 was designed to be accessed directly via the internet, and most companies just don’t have the proper network setup. It’s no surprise, then, that deploying Office 365 without the right planning and guidance can lead to network problems and a poor user experience.

In this webcast, we’ll explore Microsoft’s current connectivity guidance for optimizing Office 365 in your network. You’ll hear how to remove common deployment hurdles, what network changes you need to make, and how you can guarantee a fast user experience.
