Business Driver: Zscaler’s Internet Access Gateway

“Content Control” – The only way to enforce complete control is to block everything and only admit sanctioned URL’s. For business this should be all it takes. Limit access to all social media, secure productivity with social media breaks on guest network, not production network. That’s one scenario.

Value Proposition: Zscaler Secure Internet Access Gateway

Secure the data at a single capture point and lock down every browser, email client and piece of classified data.

Zscaler Product Overview

Zscaler have redefined the Cloud Gateway and Next Generation Firewall markets by leading the market with its dedicated Cloud based products. Zscaler extends perimeter protection and policy enforcement to every device and user protecting all stakeholders irrespective of device or location.  Zscaler treat gateway security and firewall infrastructure as a service offering, without any capital expense or the in-built obsolescence concerns based around hardware appliances.

The Z-Scaler Platform

Zscaler are leaders in a new security model – Secure Access Service Edge (SASE). Sensitive data often lives outside the safe-borders of the Data Centre and the new paradigm is to provide complete protection of data irrespective of domicile.

ZIA -Zscaler Internet Access Suite

This family of products drives better security and hosts a retinue of complementary features like IPS, DLP, Firewall and a multitude of other management features.

ZPA – Zscaler Private Access

Network-Centric is as relevant as dial-up internet. User requirements have forced the obsolescence upon this type of security model. Market leaders like Zscaler are adopting a zero-trust model that permits seamless access to private applications and renders them invisible to unauthorised users. Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) supports managed and unmanaged endpoints and works well with private applications that aren’t optimised for the web too.

 

  • Seamless access to web and endpoints
  • Segmentation based on application, not the network
  • Deploy TLS encrypted tunnels and custom PKI for greater resilience
  • Tightly control exposure to known risks and sanctioned applications
  • Only connect secured, outbound services negating DDOS issues

 

A streamlined new approach Zscaler have build their products based upon the technological migration from the physical, network-centric hardware models to a decentralised, adaptable perimeter that accompanies the user. This method has created a new way of securing the company perimeter and reinvented how users interact with the organisation’s IT infrastructure.   

Total Cloud – Total Control

Direct to Cloud security improves response time and enables security improvements or adds/moves/changes to be initiated from a central management console.

Unlimited Scale

Satisfied Productive Users

Second only to security safeguards, user productivity and ease of use is a high priority to deliver improved security efficiently. Security must enhance, not impede business security.
