Leading law firm selects Zscaler for stronger security and data loss prevention

In 2015, Steptoe was planning to expand its internet gateways from five points of presence to 12 (two data centers and 10 locations). At the time, the company was using gateway security appliances, but only the two data centers and the headquarters office in Washington D.C. had direct internet access, and Steptoe knew it needed to enable direct internet access at all locations. It also needed a comprehensive data loss prevention strategy to keep up with the compliance objectives of its diverse client list.

Ultimately, to resolve these challenges, and to enable its high-profile lawyers to securely conduct business in a mobile and cloud-first world, Steptoe selected Zscaler for secure internet access, web security, and data loss prevention.
