Sean Dastouri, Senior Cloud Architect at Microsoft Azure
Moving the crown jewels to the cloud requires a trusted cloud provider. This is why almost 40% of enterprises choose to run internal applications on Azure, which was designed to deliver more choice, scalability, and speed. However, this also extends the security perimeter to the Internet - rendering network-centric security methods obsolete.
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.
Join Sean Dastouri, Senior Cloud Architect at Microsoft Azure and Lisa Lorenzin, Director of Emerging Technology Solutions at Zscaler as they discuss migrating applications to Azure and delivering faster secure application access for remote users with ZPA.
- Why enterprises are moving applications to Microsoft Azure
- How the internet has become the new network
- Reasons why network-centric security services are becoming obsolete
- The Zscaler solution delivering secure access to private applications on Azure
Ameet Jani, Product Manager Google Beyond Corp at Google
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?
In this webinar hear from Ameet Jani, Product Manager Google Beyond Corp at Google Cloud and Manoj Apte, Chief Strategy Officer at Zscaler as they talk about zero trust security, and how to take a user and application-centric approach to application access. You’ll learn:
- How cloud and mobility are driving enterprise transformation
- The challenge of legacy network-centric methods
- Why a user and application-centric approach strengthens security
- How to support access to internal apps from any device, anywhere
On May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will go into effect. Are you properly prepared? According to Gartner, not many will be: “By the end of 2018, over 50% of companies affected by the GDPR will not be in full compliance with its requirements".
You don’t have to be one of these companies.
Join Chris Hudson, EMEA CISO and Shaun Ghafouri, Associate General Counsel, as they discuss some suggested steps for compliance with the GDPR (legal, technical, and organisational). We will also discuss:
One of the first steps is to recognise that GDPR isn't just an IT problem — it affects almost every department — and building a cross-functional team with goals and clear lines of communication is critical.
Specifically, we will be discussing the legal, technical and organisational challenges and roadblocks to GDPR compliance, addressing questions such as:
- With May 25, 2018 less than 3 months away, what should the GDPR project plan look like?
- Who should be on the GDPR team? This isn't just an IT challenge.
- What should the priorities be? Data flows, reasons for data retention.
- What security controls should be in place? Encryption, logging, access control, authentication, data mapping.
- What about Shadow IT? We don't know what we don't know.
GDPR is a big, important undertaking. Your ability to ensure that all departments and stakeholders are working together with the IT team will be a key element of compliance. We hope you will join us.

Software-defined perimeter security represents the future for remote access
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 to 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.
Please join Zscaler Director of Product Management (and former customer), Dan Shelton as he discusses the software-defined perimeter as a replacement for remote access VPN. You’ll learn how you can:
Standardize security across all platforms (cloud & datacenter)
Provide granular application access, without network access
Use software to reduce appliance footprint
Deliver a world-class remote user experience

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. The tool, which dates back to the 1990s, extends the corporate network to users and exposes it to malware that may be running on mobile devices.
In this session, Zscaler Senior Director of Product Management, Denzil Wessels, will discuss a new approach for enabling secure remote access to internally managed applications. Instead of relying on appliances anchored to the data center, this revolutionary approach leverages the cloud to deliver the performance users demand and the security IT requires.

Today 34% of enterprises are running applications within Azure Cloud. That's up 14% from last year! The problem is that Enterprise Networking and Security teams still rely on the VPN to provide remote access to the network for their mobile users. The VPN, famous for giving users a poor user experience, breaks the cloud experience, exposes the network to employees while driving costs and complexity when migrating apps to Azure.
It's time for enterprises to rethink the way they provide remote access. It's time for them to retire their VPN.
Please join Patrick Foxhoven, CIO and VP of Emerging Technologies, Zscaler, Inc., as he explains how enterprises use Zscaler Private Access (ZPA) for Azure solution provide faster, secure remote access to internal applications for their remote employees. We'll discuss how ZPA:
- Provides direct to cloud access for a better user experience
- Provides secure remote access without the use of VPN
- Reduces costs and complexity due to no need for inbound VPN gateways

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.

There are many theories about WannaCry and your inbox is probably full of emails explaining why you need to buy yet another security product. They’re essentially saying, “What you’ve got isn’t working, so get more of it.”
But we believe that WannaCry is a clear indication of how the world has changed. To protect our organizations against such modern threats, we need to rethink the way we connect users to their assets and to each other — without bringing them onto the network.
What makes WannaCry a game-changer? Let our security experts show you. Deepen Desai and Patrick Foxhoven will present evidence-based information about WannaCry, so you can discern the truth about this evolving threat. They’ll present details on the initial attack vector, new strains that are emerging and those we are seeing in the Zscaler cloud, and protective actions you can take now. Finally, they’ll discuss how we can more effectively protect against modern threats like WannaCry by rethinking the way we apply security and access controls.

Cyber extortion is on the rise, and the public sector is particularly vulnerable. A study conducted by a leading cybersecurity threat management firm reported that state and local government networks are twice as likely as their commercial counterparts to be infected with either ransomware or malware.
Why are ransomware perpetrators increasingly setting their sights on the public sector? First, many agencies and public institutions rely on legacy systems that are challenged to meet all of today’s cybersecurity threats. Second, the proliferation of devices and technology platforms, including smartphones, tablets and mobile apps, are giving hackers more points of entry into public sector networks. Are you prepared for such an attack?
Join Bil Harmer, Strategist, Office of the CISO, Zscaler Inc., for a compelling webcast highlighting how ransomware can impact your organization and steps you can take to secure your network and systems.
