What is the company’s vision?

The world of IT security has undergone tremendous transformation, sparked by the consumerization of the enterprise, the adoption of cloud computing, the ubiquity of mobile devices and the evolution of threats, which are more serious today than they have ever been before. While traditional security appliances were developed in a time when none of this existed, Zscaler’s modern cloud security platform enables businesses to embrace these innovations securely, while delivering a superior user experience. Just as cloud applications transformed the market for CRM, Zscaler is transforming the market for internet security.

What is a Security Cloud?

Zscaler’s Security Cloud is a comprehensive, carrier-grade internet security and compliance platform running in more than 100 data centers distributed around the globe. Zscaler acts as a series of checkposts in between your organization and the public internet, scanning all incoming and outgoing traffic between any device, anywhere in the world, and the internet to identify and block potential threats and to protect your intellectual property.

What makes Zscaler different from other IT security providers?

With major global brands grappling with fallout from high-profile security breaches, security has been elevated to a board-level discussion and a new approach is clearly needed. Many vendors with roots in the security appliance or software world claim to offer cloud-based solutions. Only Zscaler was architected from the ground up as a multi-tenant, distributed cloud security platform. Zscaler has effectively moved security into the internet backbone, operating in more than 100 data centers around the world and enabling organizations to unlock the promise of cloud and mobile computing by providing users with the shortest and safest path to the internet. As the only truly integrated cloud security platform, Zscaler delivers carrier-grade internet security, advanced persistent threat (APT) protection, data loss prevention, SSL decryption, traffic shaping, policy management and threat intelligence – all without the need for on-premise hardware, appliances or software.

In comparison to traditional appliance-based approaches to internet security, Zscaler’s modern cloud-based platform delivers better security, better administrator and end-user productivity, and better economics. Learn more about The Zscaler Difference.
