Zscaler has announced new data protection innovations in the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange that will protect organizations in telework by securely connecting users, devices and applications, the company reported on Thursday.
“The innovations across our data protection suite help our customers better reduce the risk of data exposure and compliance violations, all on the same platform that makes it easier than ever to safely connect people to business applications,” said Amit Sinha, president and CTO of Zscaler.
Zscaler has built its Zero Trust Exchange on a Secure Access Services Edge (SASE) framework, which will expand the offering’s data protection capabilities with a suite of generally available services, including Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) and Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) for SaaS applications, as well as Cloud Browser Isolation.
The Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange was built with a new approach that will create zero trust connections directly between the users and applications. The scalable, cloud-native platform will enable digital transformation by securely connecting users, devices and applications anywhere, without relying on network-wide access. .
Zscaler’s SASE architecture will improve the user experience with a proprietary cloud distributed across more than 150 locations globally so connections and security happen locally, which will reduce latency and improve security response times.
The company’s unified data protection offering now added to the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange will provide unified reporting and automatic remediation of violations across locations, applications and users.
“There is a new set of business requirements now that employees and applications are more distributed than ever before, and they require a cloud-first platform built on the SASE framework. The architecture of the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange ensures Zscaler’s ability to deliver strong security and a great user experience in this new work-from-anywhere world,” Sinha added.
Zscaler (NASDAQ: ZS) accelerates digital transformation so customers can be more agile, efficient, resilient, and secure. The Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange protects thousands of customers from cyberattacks and data loss by securely connecting users, devices, and applications in any location. Distributed across more than 150 data centers globally, the SASE-based Zero Trust Exchange is the world’s largest in-line cloud security platform.
