Zscaler Client Connector

Securely connect users to any app from any device or location

Zscaler Client Connector™ is a lightweight agent for user endpoints, enabling hybrid work through secure, fast, reliable access to any app over any network.

Why It’s Important

A mobile world needs secure remote access

Users now work from anywhere, and require seamless access to websites, SaaS apps, and private apps, whether in the cloud or a data center. To help workforces be productive and secure, organizations need to retire network-centric solutions in favor of simpler, safer, zero trust connectivity.

Architecture Matters

Secure digital transformation requires zero trust architecture

Firewall-and-VPN architectures connect users to the network for security and connectivity—even remote workers accessing cloud apps. This slows productivity and increases the risk of lateral threat movement on the network.

Client Connector is a lightweight agent that encrypts and forwards user traffic to the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange, the world’s largest inline security cloud, which acts as an intelligent switchboard to securely connect users directly to applications.
