Stopping data loss has become harder than ever

The challenges

Disruptions to modernization

Disruptions to modernization

Complex, outdated networks and infrastructure can drag out SAP and cloud migration timelines, increasing costs and making user access to essential apps more difficult.

Frustrating user experiences

Frustrating user experiences

Frequent downtime and slow application connections affect productivity, and a lack of visibility into access and controls makes it challenging to resolve user experience issues.

Increased application attack surface

Increased application attack surface

Connecting users and third-party vendors to SAP applications through a VPN leaves the network exposed and broadens your attack surface, adding significant business risk.

Zscaler for SAP: zero trust for security and beyond

Ensure access to SAP S/4HANA goes uninterrupted during a cloud migration process. Optimized for agility and scale, the Zscaler inline security cloud removes complex networks, enabling better visibility and making for easier, more secure migration from on-premises SAP ERP workloads to SAP S/4HANA in HEC environments and the public cloud, so you can:

Zscaler for SAP - Zero trust for security and beyond

Keep the business running: Zscaler Private Access™ application connectors are cloud-delivered, deploying in minutes with no downtime.

Unify access policy: Zscaler doesn’t change user access, no matter where you are in your cloud transformation journey—access is consistent across all locations and devices.

Secure cloud migration: Adaptive zero trust access based on identity and context reduces your attack surface and makes SAP more agile and scalable.

Improve user experience: Granular visibility into access and control from Zscaler Digital Experience™ helps you pinpoint root cause and speed up MTTR for user experience issues.

Reliable and secure user access to business-critical SAP applications, without VPN

Built on a cloud native architecture, the Zero Trust Exchange eliminates the need for VPN gateways and legacy appliances that have limited capacity and cause latency and connectivity issues. It ensures direct, secure application connections for users and third parties, reducing your attack surface and the risk of lateral movement, enabling you to:

Maximize productivity: Always-on access to business-critical systems and applications removes the need to backhaul traffic through unreliable VPNs.

Optimize connectivity anywhere: Connections take the shortest path: remote users through the closest Zscaler Public Service Edge, and in-office employees through an on-prem Private Service Edge.

Protect SAP from cyberthreats: Zero trust policies never place users or third parties on your corporate network, and applications are never exposed to the internet, making them invisible to unauthorized users.

Maintain regulatory compliance: Zero trust network access based on identity and context, without costly infrastructure and VPNs, adheres to emerging compliance regulations such as NIST 800-207.

Reliable and secure user access to business-critical SAP applications, without VPN

“I really didn’t want public interfaces to our private environment, and ZPA allowed us to do that. We’re getting a better security footprint, better visibility and we’re more compliant.”

“We’re getting a better security footprint for SAP, better visibility and we’re more compliant.”

“In process of moving SAP to AWS, ZPA gives us the flexibility to terminate those users wherever we need to. We can run in one region in AWS, then have those users connect seamlessly by a policy change.”
