Zscaler helps Silicon Valley manufacturer streamline operations and strengthen security

Sanmina embraced the cloud as early as 2009, not only for the cost benefits but also for its potential to improve productivity for Sanmina’s teams worldwide and to put the organization on a new trajectory with respect to collaboration and communication. However, the endpoint security and local firewalls on employee laptops couldn’t offer an appropriate level of protection. When Sanmina’s more than 6,000 mobile employees were outside of the network and connected directly to cloud apps, they bypassed the security perimeter, increasing their exposure to internet threats.

Zscaler provides Sanmina with a complete security stack in the cloud that encompasses access control, threat prevention, and data protection—without the need for costly, difficult-to-manage appliances.
