The State of Encrypted Attacks

Presented by

Deepan Desai, CISO & VP Security Research Data Protection Zscaler Mark Brozek, Sr. Product Marketing Manager at Zscaler

About this talk

In a recent study, the Zscaler ThreatLabz research team observed a 314% year-over-year increase in attacks over encrypted channels—a nearly 260 percent increase from the year before. Security teams should take note: cybercriminals are increasingly savvy with their attack tactics, and regularly encrypt their communications to take advantage of lax security controls and gain access to sensitive data. Unfortunately, inspecting encrypted traffic can be prohibitively expensive and cause huge performance issues for companies using legacy security infrastructure. Join Deepen Desai, Zscaler CISO and VP of Threat Research, as he reveals the staggering findings of this study of over 20 billion blocked threats. Learn all about changes in the encrypted threat landscape, including: - The most targeted industries and geographies - Top attack vectors and tactics - Prevalent threat families - Strategies for stopping encrypted threats - How Zscaler inspects encrypted traffic at scale as part of a holistic zero trust strategy

Back in the day when your users were all on the network and your applications resided in your physical data center, it made sense to establish a secure perimeter around your network. But those days are over, the perimeter is gone, and network security is all but irrelevant. Instead, you need to put your defenses and controls where the connections occur— the internet — so that every connection is fast and secure, no matter how or where users connect or where their applications reside. By moving applications and infrastructure to the cloud and untethering employees from their desks, you can realize tremendous advantages in productivity, agility, and cost containment. With our 100% cloud built secure platform, Zscaler can help you make the move to the cloud, securely.
