Modern Architecture for a Cloud- and
Zscaler Secure Access Service Edge (SASE)
Status quo is inhibiting digital business
For the last few decades, networks have been connecting users to applications in the data center, which was surrounded by a secure perimeter to keep apps and data safe from the outside. Today, with applications moving to the cloud, internet of things (IoT) devices becoming more common, and users connecting from everywhere, network security can no longer solve the fundamental challenge of security. Instead, it's piling on complexity and costs.
The new reality
More applications live outside the data center
Sensitive data is located in several cloud services
Users are connecting from everywhere
“The secure access service edge is an emerging offering combining comprehensive WAN capabilities with comprehensive network security functions (such as SWG, CASB, FWaaS, and ZTNA) to support the dynamic secure access needs of digital enterprises.” – Gartner
The Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange™ is a SASE service built from the ground up for performance and scalability. As a globally distributed platform, it ensures users are always a short hop from their applications. Through peering with hundreds of partners in major internet exchanges around the world, it offers optimal performance and reliability for your users.
What can Zscaler SASE do for you?
Reduce IT costs and complexity
Our platform is easy to deploy and manage as an automated, cloud-delivered service. Infinitely scalable and resident in the internet fabric itself, it enables secure digital transformation without the technical debt of legacy architectures.
Deliver a great user experience
The Zero Trust Exchange brings security and policy close to users across 150+ points of presence worldwide, eliminating unnecessary backhauling while providing optimal bandwidth and low latency.
Security is built into the core of the platform, ensuring all connections are inspected and secured, no matter whom they originate from, which app is being accessed, or what type of encryption may be used.
What makes our SASE unique?
A native, multitenant cloud architecture that
scales dynamically with demand
Proxy-based architecture for full inspection of encrypted traffic at scale
Security and policy brought close to users to eliminate unnecessary backhauling
Zero attack surface, preventing targeted attacks because your source networks and identities aren't exposed to the internet
