Cloud computing is rapidly changing enterprise IT with applications like Salesforce and Office 365, which are improving productivity, reducing costs, and simplifying management.
Now, organizations are discovering that those same advantages can be achieved by migrating security to the cloud. In fact, in its 2016 Magic Quadrant report on Secure Web Gateways, Gartner reported, “Cloud services have experienced a 35% five-year compound annual growth rate, while on-premises appliances have only grown by 6% during the same period.”
Organizations understand that protecting users with a consistent and enforceable policy requires much more than simple URL or web filtering. Thousands of companies have already switched their IT security from appliances to experience the benefits of the Zscaler™ Security Cloud. Download this whitepaper today to find out why.
URL filtering is a type of content filtering that allows or blocks users from accessing specific websites. The practice has become an essential one on enterprise networks, with the goal of blocking employees from accessing content that would be a detriment to their productivity or the company as a whole. Blocked sites may include those that threaten the security of the organization, have objectionable content, or are bandwidth-intensive enough to strain company resources.
The SecureWorks® Counter Threat Unit™ (CTU) research team analyzes security threats and helps
organizations protect their systems. During May and June 2017, CTU™ researchers identified lessons
learned and observed notable developments in threat behaviors, the global threat landscape, and
• The global WCry and NotPetya campaigns reinforced the need for a layered approach
• Attacks used obfuscated malicious files and scripts to bypass filtering and deliver malware.
• A Chinese threat group has had repeated success using compromised websites to attack
• Threat actors have been stealing intellectual property from Japanese enterprises.

requests. Effectively managing, monitoring, controlling, and
filtering network traffic are key actions that can help do so and
further enable a robust cloud security infrastructure.
Filtering Cloud Network Traffic and Preventing Threats
Network readiness is an important factor in any new IT project at companies both large and small. New applications seem to require more bandwidth than the applications that they replace. These applications can also bring in new users, sometimes by the thousands. In some cases, the network services and/or capacity are not ready for these changes, and the IT rollout suffers.
This guide covers the following topics: bandwidth, wireless, firewalls, content filtering, proxy servers, and others.
