Connect Your Workforce to Business Apps from Any Device or Location
Zscaler Client Connector enables hybrid work with fast, secure, reliable access to apps from millions of devices worldwide.
Secure remote access in the mobile world
Modern users are connecting to work from laptops, smartphones, tablets, POS systems, and even RF scanners, and they may not be behind your on-premises firewalls. Wherever they are and whatever device they're using, your remote users still need the same fast, seamless access to business-critical applications in your data center and the cloud.
Your IT team faces a challenge here: Provide the flexibility your remote workers need to stay productive, and at the same time, improve security and increase visibility into what users are accessing. In short, you need to take a modern approach to fast, secure connectivity.
Zscaler Client Connector
Included as part of Zscaler Internet Access® and Zscaler Private Access®, Zscaler Client Connector™ is a lightweight app that sits on users' endpoints—corporate-managed laptops and mobile devices, BYOD, POS systems, and more—and enforces security policies and access controls regardless of device, location, or application. The app forwards traffic to the closest Zscaler service edge, where the traffic is routed to the internet, a SaaS application, or an internal application through the appropriate zero trust service.
With the integrated Zscaler Digital Experience® service, IT administrators can get valuable insight into business app, network, and device performance.
Benefits of Zscaler Client Connector
One app for all your zero trust network access needs
Auto-route traffic for a seamless user experience and easier IT
By default, the app routes mobile traffic through the Zscaler cloud (by default) for secure access and optimal routing, with no virtual private network (VPN) to spin up. The app also integrates with identity and multifactor authentication (MFA) providers, and it can detect trusted networks and captive portals to prioritize the user experience.
Support all the devices your business needs
Zscaler Client Connector supports most device types, including laptops, smartphones, and tablets, and runs on iOS, macOS, Android, Windows, CentOS, and Ubuntu 20.04.
Use device posture and fingerprinting for context-aware access and security
Through integration with endpoint security providers, the app can enforce context-aware security that ensures devices are mapped to specific users based on criteria like device model, platform, and operating system. Security remains intact even in the event of credential or device theft.
Easily enforce enrollment to stay secure
IT can require enrollment of user devices prior to accessing apps. It can prevent users from turning off the app to ensure all mobile traffic is secure.
Gain more visibility with an intuitive dashboard
The Zscaler Client Connector portal allows administrators to view data for remote devices with the app deployed as well as manage policies specifically for the app.
Make deployment almost invisible to users
Easily deploy Zscaler Client Connector on endpoints to minimize user friction with MDM, Microsoft Intune, LDAP, or ADFS. Silent deployment auto-installs client and TLS/SSL certificates onto devices during enrollment.
