On-Demand Webcast|1 hour

HTTPS is the gold standard for encrypting and protecting data on the web—yet almost 86% of cyberthreats hide in encrypted traffic, too. It’s a double-edged sword: even as encryption protects sensitive data, it’s a key means for threat actors to bypass defenses. With the bulk of malware, ransomware, and phishing attacks hidden in TLS/SSL, how can enterprises keep encrypted traffic?

The Zscaler ThreatLabz research team analyzed more than 29 billion blocked threats from the world's largest security cloud, which processes more than 360 billion transactions daily.

Join this webinar with ThreatLabz experts to learn the key findings from the Zscaler ThreatLabz 2023 State of Encrypted Attacks report, including:

  • A breakdown of the encrypted threat landscape
