COMPREHENSIVE SECURITY FOR THE MODERN ENTERPRISE

Zscaler Security Service Edge (SSE)

CLOUD AND MOBILITY CHALLENGES

Legacy security impedes modern business

With apps, data, and users moving off-premises, the internet has become the new network. On-premises network security like data center firewalls can't protect cloud-based apps or sensitive data, stop lateral movement of threats, decrypt SSL at scale, or follow remote users and endpoints. This inhibits security, performance, and the user experience while adding latency.

In other words, legacy cybersecurity from legacy providers isn't good enough for modern business.

Data and users are off-network, away from traditional security, and exposed to increased risk.

Zscaler Security Service Edge

 

Security service edge (SSE) is the convergence of security services like cloud access security broker (CASB), secure web gateway (SWG), and zero trust network access (ZTNA) into one cloud platform delivered at the edge. It is the security component of Gartner’s secure access service edge (SASE) model for secure access, which also includes services like software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN), routing, and optimization.

Zscaler offers the ideal SSE solution to round out a SASE architecture with an all-in-one security platform built on the world’s largest security cloud. Zscaler SSE:

  • Eliminates the attack surface by hiding apps behind the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange™
  • Prevents compromise by securing all user-to-app, app-to-app, and machine-to-machine communications
  • Stops lateral movement by connecting users to apps and not the network, isolating threats
  • Minimizes cost and complexity while maximizing user experience and performance

"[SSE] offers immediate opportunities to reduce complexity and improve user experience by consolidating multiple disparate security capabilities into a single product."

The benefits of Zscaler SSE

Zero attack surface

Zero attack surface

Zscaler hides applications behind the Zero Trust Exchange to render them invisible to the public internet and eliminate the attack surface entirely.

Zero trust

Zero trust

Zscaler provides least-privileged access to IT resources and connects users directly to apps, keeping them off the enterprise network to prevent lateral movement.

No more compromise

No more compromise

Through a complete platform with a single-pass architecture and full SSL inspection, Zscaler stops data loss and threats more effectively than legacy or point products.

Less cost and complexity

Less cost and complexity

Consolidating security technology with a single vendor decreases cost and IT complexity—disjointed point products no longer need to be purchased, deployed, or managed.

User experience

User experience

Our global footprint of data centers delivers all-in-one security from as close to your end users as possible for an ideal user experience in your HQ, branch offices, and anywhere else.

More than SSE

More than SSE

Zscaler goes beyond CASB, SWG, and ZTNA to offer data loss prevention (DLP), cloud firewall (FWaaS), UEBA, Cloud Browser Isolation, inline Cloud Sandbox, and more.
