Zscaler Arrives at RSA Conference 2017 with an Exciting Lineup and a Smashing Display

Grazed from Zscaler, Inc.

Zscaler, Inc., the leading cloud security company, today announced its presence at the upcoming RSA Conference 2017 in San Francisco at the Moscone Center, South Hall booth #1207. Through a series of in-booth displays, product demonstrations, and partner presentations, ZscalerTM will showcase its industry-recognized solutions architected from the ground up as part of a multi-tenant, distributed cloud security platform for the new, cloud-centric world of IT.

Also featured at the exhibit will be the Zscaler "smash booth," in which visitors are invited to take out their frustrations with the expensive, complex security appliances of the past. Many of the traditional appliance-based approaches to enterprise security have changed little over the years, even as users have become mobile and applications have moved to the cloud. With their outdated architectures, designed to protect a security perimeter that no longer exists, such appliances have become relics. For InfoSec professionals who -- in the face of software issues, firewall rules, CVEs, and more -- have ever wished for a sledgehammer, Zscaler is happy to offer them one, along with a pair of safety goggles.

All Zscaler activities at RSA, including its smash booth, continue to center on the company's "break free" message, encouraging visitors to break free from architectures of the past that are preventing them from fully embracing the agility, productivity, and efficiencies of cloud enablement.
