Zscaler has built the world’s largest cloud security platform, which today ensures that more than 15 million employees at more than 5,000 enterprise and government organizations worldwide are protected against cyber attacks and data breaches, while staying fully compliant with corporate and regulatory policies. Zscaler’s award-winning platform delivers a safe and productive Internet experience for every user, on any device, and from any location. Zscaler effectively moves security into the Internet backbone, operating in more than 100 data centers around the world and enabling organizations to fully leverage the promise of cloud and mobile computing with uncompromising protection and performance. Zscaler unifies Internet security, cloud sandbox, next-generation cloud firewall, data loss prevention, SSL decryption, bandwidth control, and more, with simplified policy management and reporting — all without the need for on-premises hardware, appliances or software.
When the Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect SD-WAN solution is deployed directly onto the Internet in branch offices, Zscaler enables employees to access cloud-based applications over broadband securely by scanning all incoming and outgoing traffic, identifying and blocking potential threats and protecting intellectual property. Zscaler scans every byte — all ports and all protocols, including SSL — to ensure that nothing bad gets in and nothing good leaves.
“Enterprise applications are moving to the cloud and the traditional appliance-based approach to security is far too complex and cost-prohibitive in the branch,” said Punit Minocha, vice president business development and mobile solutions for Zscaler. “With Zscaler and Silver Peak, our joint customers can be assured that their employees can access the Internet and cloud-based applications securely. Just as Silver Peak EdgeConnect can be deployed in branch offices in minutes, Zscaler’s cloud-based security can be implemented at scale in minutes.
