What is the company’s vision?

The world of IT security is undergoing a transformation brought on by the consumerization of the enterprise through mobile devices, cloud applications and social media. While traditional security appliances focus on limiting the impact of these trends, Zscaler is enabling businesses to embrace innovation securely, while delivering a superior user experience. Just as cloud applicationsĀ  transformed the market for CRM, Zscaler saw an opportunity to transform the IT security market with a cloud-based solution built from the ground up to securely enable mobility, cloud applications and social media.

What is a Security Cloud?

Appliance-based network security solutions were designed to protect static corporate networks, and routing mobile and remote traffic through these appliances often slows traffic to an extent that negatively impacts the user experience. Zscaler’s Security Cloud acts as a checkpost in the cloud, scanning all incoming and outgoing traffic between any device, anywhere in the world, and the Internet to identify and block potential threats.

Zscaler’s Security Cloud solutions are used by more than 5,000 global enterprises to secure over 12 million users worldwide. Our current customers are large global industry leaders that are trying to solve the difficult challenges of securing users beyond their corporate network. Our largest customer is National Health Services (NHS) with 1.6 million users. Other customers include British American Tobacco (BAT), which uses Zscaler to secure users in over 180 countries, as well as Society General, RalCorp, Pitney Bowes, and VMware. We also offer Zscaler through relationships with Internet Service Providers such as BT, Verizon, Telefonica and Swisscom.

What makes Zscaler different from other IT security providers?

There are hundreds of companies in the market offering some form of IT security. The difference Zscaler brings is that we are a pure cloud solution that requires no hardware or software. Unlike competitor appliances that are static and sit at the server or corporate network, Zscaler is built from the ground up to enable businesses for mobility, cloud applications and social media. Zscaler is the world’s largest security cloud with over 100+ datacenters worldwide, and doesn’t require IT organizations to purchase expensive hardware and software to secure mobile users or remote offices around the globe. We are transforming the market for IT security in much the same way that SaaS applications have transformed the CRM market.
