Data Loss Prevention
The Simple Scalable Solution Versus The Appliance Stack
Protection and Compliance in Minutes
Channel your internet traffic through the world’s largest security cloud and we will inspect every byte, ensure the content is safe and compliant, forward approved traffic to its eventual destination and then log the actions we have taken.
The security cloud acts like a security and compliance filter in the path of all of your Internet traffic – whether it is destined for consumer websites like Facebook, Google or Baidu, commercial cloud applications like Salesforce.com and Box, public cloud services like Amazon Web Services or Microsoft Windows Azure, or your own private cloud applications, perhaps running at IBM, HP or Verizon data centres. We also inspect the Internet traffic generated by mobile applications.
Zscaler is designed to protect all of your users and all of your systems, wherever on the planet they happen to be located and however they are connected
- corporate LAN
- hotel Wi-Fi
- home office
and whatever the device is, including smart phones and Internet-connected “things.”
APT With No Sacrificial Lamb
Nearly all appliance vendors that provide APT protection are deployed in tap mode – meaning that the file that may be malware will still be delivered to the victim. Some minutes or hours later when that file is determined to be malware, only then does the system alert security analysts – already too late as the infection has already happened. That poor first user was a “sacrificial lamb” as is still infected.
Zscaler provides an initial inspection quarantine that guarantees even the first file seen can be quarantined until it is cleared or blocked if flagged as malicious. This is the only way to guarantee the halt of the spread of an infection. Because Zscaler’s security cloud handles APT detection over 50 times faster than typical appliance solutions, the delay is viable.
Over 30% of Internet Traffic Encrypted with SSL
Today, more and more Internet traffic is encrypted using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol—across our systems Zscaler see more than 30% of traffic encrypted with SSL, and growing.
Ten years ago, SSL encryption was used primarily for banking and other secure transactions, but now SSL is becoming mainstream—all major consumer and commercial cloud applications like Google Search, Office 365, Salesforce, Box, and Facebook are 100% SSL with many actively promoting ubiquitous use of SSL encryption for all Internet access.
So what’s the problem? Most traditional security appliances are ‘blind’ to SSL traffic.
Even if an appliance has the theoretical ability to decrypt SSL traffic, the computational burden this puts on the system means that you either have to accept poor performance or add significantly more hardware to maintain acceptable user experience. This is why most organisations do not today decrypt and inspect SSL traffic. The recent move to 2048-bit SSL certificates has aggravated this problem, by causing, on average, greater than 80% degradation in appliance performance, according to NSS labs.
Mobile Security – Smart Phones, Tablets, etc
Zscaler’s Mobile Security Solution is custom built to address the evolving challenges of mobile data and app security for both employee-owned and corporate-issued mobile devices. Simply forward your entire mobile traffic—browser and app—to Zscaler’s cloud security platform where both inbound and outbound traffic are analysed in real time to ensure that your users are protected against Advanced Web browsing threats like phishing or spyware, as well as malicious or rogue apps, and apps that may pose security or privacy risks to data on the device. Zscaler Mobile App ProfilerTM technology enables the protection of mobile apps based on the network traffic, identifies the device platforms the apps were running on, and flags any security or privacy risks that they may pose. All this is achieved with minimal latency—thus maintaining optimal user experience.
Whether you provide your employees with mobile devices or your users bring their own, it does not matter—Zscaler has you covered. Struggling with managing iOS vs Android? We have solutions for any platform—Zscaler has you covered. The whole point of mobile security is that it needs to be mobile—not just in where it is used, but how and when it is used.
