Zscaler and AWS Expand Relationship Enabling Customers to Accelerate Onramp to the Cloud with Zero Trust Security
SAN JOSE, Calif. and LAS VEGAS, June 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ZENITH LIVE -- Zscaler, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZS) today announced an extension to its relationship with Amazon Web Services (AWS), a preferred cloud provider. In addition, Zscaler announced innovations built on Zscaler’s Zero Trust architecture and AWS to help enterprises securely accelerate their transition to the cloud. Working together, the companies will deliver customers a unified solution to consolidate and simplify cloud security operations while helping organizations advance their security architecture from ineffective legacy models to a modern Zero Trust approach designed for the cloud.
Today, enterprises are often left to purchase, implement, and manage dozens of disparate point products, which has resulted in operational complexity and higher overhead costs. As the cloud continues to mature, enterprises are looking for a holistic cloud-based platform with integrated services, including, Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM), Cloud Infrastructure Entitlements Management (CIEM), Cloud Workload Protection Platforms (CWPP), Data Loss Protection (DLP), Configuration Management Database (CMDB), and Infrastructure as a Code (IaC) scanning, to protect their globally distributed workloads.
To help enterprises advance their deployment of Zero Trust to secure their cloud applications and improve the security of their 5G connections, Zscaler and AWS have extended their relationship to deliver simple, yet powerful, solutions built on AWS. These solutions are designed to help identify, prioritize, mitigate, and remediate cloud workload risks for the applications and the cloud infrastructure, while also extending Zero Trust to Private 5G connections. In cooperation with AWS, Zscaler's three innovations designed to advance cloud security and cloud connections include:
“Zscaler, in collaboration with AWS, provides an innovative and highly-scalable solution for securing cloud workloads,” said Rui Cabeço, IT Service Group Manager & Global Outbound Connectivity Lead at Siemens. “We look forward to leveraging the powerful capabilities of Zscaler and the AWS Marketplace to drive business agility as we continue our cloud transformation.”
