Zscaler is proud to announce our zero trust partnership with Splunk, giving security analysts more ways to incorporate telemetry from our world-class Zero Trust Exchange into their workflows and strategies. Together, our tightly integrated, best-of-breed cloud security and security analytics platforms deliver unmatched zero trust capabilities for the modern, cloud-first enterprise.
Zero trust is based on the notion that a breach is inevitable or has likely already occurred, and therefore any and all access to resources should be limited to the least amount possible for users to be able to do their jobs. This involves segmentation, risk-based access controls, continuous authentication and monitoring, and dynamic coordination between security controls.
Citing guidance from the National Security Agency (NSA), “to be fully effective to minimize risk and enable robust and timely responses, zero trust principles and concepts must permeate most aspects of the network and its operations ecosystem.”
Zscaler and Splunk work together to do just that.
Zscaler’s cloud-native proxy architecture eliminates unnecessary exposure and provides rich data and increased visibility for the SecOps team. With a direct-to-cloud architecture, security teams can ensure that policy is being applied across every transaction; meanwhile, they get boosted insight into users, data, and apps. The zero trust benefits of Zscaler include:
Splunk, meanwhile, provides SecOps teams with centralized log ingestion and analytics to monitor and correlate activities across the entire security environment – including a direct cloud-to-cloud streaming ingestion of Zscaler logs and dashboards – and provides visibility into zero trust with a zero trust analytics dashboard. Further, Splunk Phantom can orchestrate policy, allowlist/denylist, and remediation actions using Zscaler’s API. Splunk delivers:
Cloud NSS is Zscaler's innovative new cloud-to-cloud data streaming service that makes it even faster and easier to deploy, manage, and scale log ingestion from Zscaler to Splunk Cloud. This service enables native ingestion of Zscaler’s rich cloud security telemetry to enrich investigation and threat hunting for cloud-first organizations – and is configurable in a matter of clicks. Splunk Cloud correlates the Zscaler telemetry with an organization’s other high-value data sources, providing full visibility into actionable data for investigations within one centralized console.
Zscaler’s cloud-native security architecture dramatically reduces the attack surface and provides full inline scanning and analytics, and sends high-resolution telemetry logs directly to Splunk using the cloud-to-cloud log streaming service. The Zscaler app for Splunk further allows for SecOps teams to visualize Zscaler’s threat protection with detailed dashboards and prebuilt queries. Customers benefit from:
