Presented by

About this talk

Too often are security strategies static, and perimeter-based tools such as firewall and VPN do not offer the scalability or policy granularity to secure workloads in cloud-centric environments. As admins aim to improve their security posture, recent ESG research cites that 46% of organizations have implemented or begun to implement zero trust across their organization—and 38% are more adaptive after adoption. However, zero trust is often overly focused on the user and neglects workloads. Watch this custom webinar to understand why extending zero trust to your workloads should be on your agenda and: • Why zero trust is important & where current strategies fall short. • 4 zero trust business benefits • Deployment scenarios to support zero trust for workloads. Speakers: John Grady, Principal Analyst with Enterprise Strategy Group Brian Lazear, VP Product Management with Zscaler Sakthi Chandra, Senior Director, Head of Marketing- Workload Communications, Zscaler

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.
