Whitepaper: Zscaler Explains Its In-The-Cloud Service

by ZscalerAug 01, 2008

Most of today�s security products�such as firewalls, VPN, IDS/IPS�protect corporate networks and servers from threats coming from the Internet. Newer threats, such as bots, phishing, and malicious active content, target end users accessing Internet resources and infect corporate networks. Other than deploying caching and URL filtering products, corporations have done very little to inspect user-initiated traffic and protect their users. Web 2.0 applications, such as social and business networking, create both opportunities and challenges. They help create communities of interest for marketing, but also create risks when users inadvertently download malicious content, or create liability when employees publish inappropriate or confidential content on blogs and social networks. Road warriors and smartphone users further exacerbate this problem�their access to the Internet often bypasses all security controls. Zscaler enriches user experience for Internet access, while providing risk mitigation and policy enforcement for CEOs and CISOs through its in-the-cloud service.

Whitepaper: The Attacker Within: How Hackers Are Targeting Enterprise Networks From the Inside Out

by ZscalerAug 01, 2008

As enterprise defenses evolve, so too do the attack vectors leveraged by those seeking to bypass such controls. We are entering an era where attackers are no longer working to punch a hole in the fortress surrounding enterprise IT assets from the outside. They don�t need to; they�re already inside. Thanks to the meteoric rise in the importance of Web-based traffic and a laundry list of vulnerabilities in Web-aware applications on the desktop, end users are now being turned into enablers for enterprise attacks. Convincing a trusting employee to visit a Web site is all that an attacker needs to do in order to access valuable data deep within a secure network.


Webcast: Myths of Cloud Security Debunked!

by ZscalerJun 17, 2015

Despite the meteoric rise of cloud based applications and services, as well as its subsequent adoption by a significant number of enterprises, security still remains a major concern for many organizations. The elephant in the room is the misconception that the cloud is less secure than on-premise capabilities. Gartner eloquently describes this as “more of a trust issue than based on any reasonable analysis of actual security capabilities”.

A recent global study by BT revealed that 76% of large organizations cited security as their main concern for using cloud-based services. 49% admitted being “ very” or “extremely anxious” about the security complications of these services. However according to Gartner, the reality is “most breaches continue to involve on-premises data center environments”

Where do you stand on this issue?

Join Michael Sutton, Chief Information Security Officer, Zscaler, for a compelling webcast debunking the top myths of cloud security. He will address the following myths:

  1. Cloud-based infrastructure is inherently more vulnerable than atraditional IT infrastructure
  2. Cloud vendors lack transparency when it comes to understanding their security posture
  3. Physical management of data and hardware means better security
  4. Cloud security is difficult to manage
  5. Moving security to the cloud results in a loss of control over the security architecture

Michael will also provide concrete steps you can take to keep your organization safe in today’s cloud and mobile first IT landscape.
