Zscaler products Zscaler Internet Access
While going through the market, we came across Zscaler and it ticked all the boxes for us in terms of being designed cloud-first rather than trying to take on-prem firewalls and put them in the cloud. Zscaler was the obvious option for us.
- Dan Morgan IT, infrastructure and services director Nuffield Health
The Nuffield Health IT team was about to undertake a number of projects to improve productivity, efficiency, and patient services, while enhancing the user experience in its corporate office, hospitals, and gyms. These projects included a migration to Microsoft Office 365. Nuffield Health discovered that 60 percent of its traffic was already destined for the internet rather than its data centers, and that percentage would increase considerably once Office 365 was deployed.
With traffic going direct to the internet and not going through a data center, security becomes a major concern. Given the number of sites that Nuffield Health is responsible for and with the amount of traffic it expected to be destined for the internet, a cloud security solution made the most sense.
