Zscaler Releases New Data Protection Innovations in Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange
SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 09, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zscaler, Inc., the leader in cloud security, today announced new data protection innovations in the ZscalerTM Zero Trust Exchange that protect organizations in the work-from-anywhere era by securely connecting users, devices, and applications. The Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange, built on a Secure Access Services Edge (SASE) framework, expanded its data protection capabilities with a suite of services that are now generally available. These services include Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) for SaaS applications, and Cloud Browser Isolation.
Legacy security offerings were designed decades ago to create network based perimeters that connect people in an office to applications in a data center on a corporate network. The world was already trending to a work-from-anywhere environment with mobile users and applications delivered through the cloud, but the global pandemic rapidly accelerated this digital transformation.
The Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange was built with a new approach that creates zero trust connections between the users and applications directly to solve this unique challenge. As a scalable, cloud-native platform, it enables digital transformation by securely connecting users, devices, and applications anywhere, without relying on network-wide access. This platform is delivered by five key architecture attributes, unique to the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange, that together enable organizations to provide strong security and a great user experience to their employees and customers. The attributes are:
The work-from-anywhere era challenge is highlighted when it comes to data protection and compliance assurance. With applications and data widely distributed across multiple cloud providers and SaaS vendors, it is imperative that data exposure risk is measurable and automatically remediated. The new, unified data protection offering now added to the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange provides unified reporting and automatic remediation of violations across locations, applications and users. In addition to the existing Cloud DLP capabilities, new data protection capabilities include:
“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 Chief Technology Officer of Zscaler. “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.”
