The visibility and control offered by Zscaler allows us to make smart policy decisions that improve our users’ experiences while allowing us to ensure we are appropriately managing our risk environment.
- Ken Athanasiou Chief Information Security Officer AutoNation
Like many organizations, AutoNation found that most traffic in its retail locations was internet bound, particularly as the company began using more cloud services. Securing that internet-bound traffic for 360 locations presented a potentially costly challenge, and so did the fact that each of the 30 car manufacturers AutoNation supports has slightly different connectivity requirements, especially concerning internet-connected diagnostic systems.
With Zscaler, AutoNation is protecting and controlling all internet- and cloud-bound traffic. With Zscaler, policies can be applied for various uses, such as guest Wi-Fi and diagnostic devices, and corporate policies can be managed from a central administrative console. All without building stacks of iron in each store.
