Why It's Time to Break Up with Your VPN and Firewall

Presented by

Linda Park, Senior Product Marketing Manager and Emily Laufer, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Zscaler

About this talk

Your legacy firewall and VPN can’t handle long trips. They’re always dropping things—and worst, they make you feel so insecure. If that sounds familiar… it might be time to break up. Legacy appliances and tools are set in their ways. They try to control access to critical apps like SAP, AWS, ADP, and others with static network-layer policies and rules based on IPs addresses and TCP port values. But the way you work has changed. You’ve changed. You want the freedom to securely access apps from anywhere, on any device, without being tied down to the network. Ending it with your legacy firewalls and VPNs can give you a fresh start. Join Linda Park and Emily Laufer for a practical, candid webinar all about you, your legacy appliances, and the technology network administrators can adopt to get back the remote access spark you deserve. Breaking up isn’t always easy, but we’re here to help. Secure your spot and learn: • How VPNs expose your apps and data to the internet • How implicit trust from legacy firewalls grants attackers unrestricted access • Why network-centric solutions are slow and expensive to maintain

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.
