Presented by

Denzil Wessels, Senior Director Product Management, Zscaler, Inc.

About this talk

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. All without the cost and complexity of static VPN gateway appliances. In this session, you will learn about the new software-defined approach to secure remote access built upon four key tenets: Use the internet as the new secure network Connect users to applications without bringing users on the network Enable remote access without exposing applications to unauthorized users Segment access to applications without network segmentation
