You need a new approach to networking and security.

You’ll come away with an understanding of: Lessons learned from Mondi Group’s real-world transformation initiative How to provide identical protection for all users and all locations The challenges of deploying secure local internet breakouts via SD-WAN on a global scale How to minimise pain points as you plan and execute your transformation journey About the Speakers: Thomas Vavra is an accomplished IT Management professional with over 18 years of diversified information technology expertise.

Back in the day when your users were all on the network and your applications resided in your physical data centre, 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. Embrace Zero Trust to make the cloud a safe place and as an effective approach in today’s cloud-first world. By moving applications and infrastructure to the cloud and untethering employees from their desks, you can realise 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.
