The cloud security provider Zscaler recently hosted its annual ZenithLive event under the bright Las Vegas lights. The company pioneered the security services edge, where security moves away from on-premises firewalls and VPNs to zero trust delivered via a cloud proxy.
One of the major themes from last week’s RSA Security conference was the rise of converged network and security platforms as organizations look to consolidate the number of vendors they have and leverage the ubiquity of the network.
Market researcher Gartner Inc. released its 2023 Magic Quadrant for Security Service Edge earlier this month, shining a light on the leaders, and laggards, in the growing cybersecurity segment.
Zscaler Inc. today announced “Zscaler Resilience,” which as the name suggests is a set of capabilities that improve the resiliency of its services with the aim of delivering nonstop operations.
Businesses have become heavily reliant on cloud services, and when they are unavailable, it can cause significant disruption in operations. One of the challenges in creating cloud resiliency is that there are so many factors, including network connectivity, security and data center operations. Some highly technical organizations may be able to do this on their own, but most companies do not have the skills. Zscaler Resilience is designed to deliver the necessary components as part of its service, simplifying business continuity.
The world is more connected than ever thanks to the proliferation of Internet of Things (IoT), connected edge computing devices and the technology that facilitates communication between devices.
Additionally, the term Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is used to describe devices and sensors in manufacturing and industrial processes. Then there’s operational technology (OT), a specific category of hardware and software that controls the performance of physical devices.
