What is the Zscaler SASE security solution?
Zscaler offer a granular and comprehensive SASE security solution, which they call their Cloud Security Platform. The solution is globally available, ensuring high performance for users world-wide by accessing peering with hundreds of partners in major internet exchanges around the world - delivered across 150 data centers worldwide.
The SASE offering includes native multi-tenant cloud architecture, for dynamic scalability on-demand, and a proxy-based architecture that inspects encrypted traffic at scale. It also brings security and policy close to the user to eliminate unnecessary backhaul, with ZTNA and a zero attack surface which avoids exposing your source networks and identities to the internet, preventing targeted attacks.
The Zscaler SASE solution can be deployed and managed as a cloud-delivered and automated service. It provides low latency and optimal bandwidth by bringing the user closer to security and policy across 150+ locations, with security being built into the fabric of the platform to ensure that all connections are secured and inspected.
- SSL Inspection: SSL inspection will locate and analyze SSL-encrypted internet traffic communications between the server and users.
- Bandwidth Control: Allows clients to prioritize business-critical applications over other traffic- for example, users may prioritize Office 365 over YouTube.
- Advanced Threat Protection: Constantly protects against zero-day threats, unknown malware and ransomware, by analyzing all packets from users, both on and off-network. Also capable of inspecting SSL.
- Machine Learning Security: Cloud-scale machine learning to protect against security threats. Designed to react to phishing, ransomware and malware attacks quickly by identifying threat patterns across volumes of data in order to block advanced threats without the need for human interaction.
What ZTNA (Zero Trust Network Access) Solution is Supported by Zscaler?
Zscaler provide cloud-delivered ZTNA, which creates secure connections between users and applications, regardless of location. It allows users to verify identities, improve and adapt visibility and set contextual policies.
What CASB (Cloud Access Security Broker) Solution is Supported by Zscaler?
Provides security for PaaS, IaaS offerings and SaaS applications. Real-time visibility and the ability to control access and user activity across sanctioned and unsanctioned applications is also provided. Also includes inline data protection capabilities to eliminate overlay architectures and proxy-chaining which have the potential to break SWG implementations. Out-of-band data protection (data at rest) capabilities leverage API integrations to look inside IaaS offerings and SaaS applications - for example, AWS S3, in order to identify exposed or sensitive data and compliance violations.
What SWG (Secure Web Gateway) Solution is Supported by Zscaler?
A cloud-delivered secure web gateway, preventing users from accessing potentially malicious web traffic from the internet and in the cloud itself.
What FWaaS (Firewall as a Service) Solution is Supported by Zscaler?
The Zscaler Cloud Firewall is designed to replace legacy firewall technology. The solution enables users to secure off-network connections as well as local internet breakout, for all user traffic without appliances. The firewall is scaleable across all ports and protocols for all cloud application traffic - can also be used in remote locations as well as branch offices.
What NDR (Network Detection and Response) Solution is Supported by Zscaler?
Zscaler offer NDR solutions via their partnership with Vectra. The hybrid product combines Vectra Network Detection and Response with Zscaler Zero Trust platform and enables users to identify and remove security threats early on in the kill chain. This allows for improved network performance, as applications remain accessible whilst security threats are removed before they become a major problem.
What XDR (Extended Detection and Response) Solution is Supported by Zscaler?
Zscaler offers integrated XDR services provided by their technology partners SecBI and Secureworks. The SecBI solution leverages machine learning in order to identify malicious behavior, collecting it and using related stored data to remote the threat. Secureworks XDR collects and analyzes data, and provides an alert should anything suspicious be found.
