Société Générale consolidates security across 39 countries, eliminating multiple point solutions

Key Highlights

  • Integrated security: Société Générale’s ALD Automotive Group achieved real-time visibility of their security posture while centralizing policy administration.
  • Massive simplification and a single view: IT was able to eliminate reliance on point appliance products at all sites.
  • Improved user experience: Without any major changes in networking infrastructure, IT received positive feedback from users on the new, low-latency web browsing experience made possible by Zscaler’s global security cloud.
  • Single platform for external and internal threats: ALD Automotive valued highly the ability to deploy both sophisticated malware protection and data loss prevention with ease on the same platform.

Challenge

ALD Automotive had grown rapidly to manage over 1 million vehicles in business fleets in 39 countries with 4,800 employees, and along the way had accumulated a hodgepodge of security point products at each site. This inhibited visibility and made provisioning, policy management and maintenance complex, a situation further aggravated by the proliferation of web applications at the company.

Zscaler enables us to effortlessly secure traffic across 39 countries with consolidated, real-time visibility.
