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
The challenge of securing access in the mobile world
Users are no longer in the office but are also working from home, on the road, or at a local cafe. They’re connecting from laptops, smartphones, tablets, POS systems and even RF scanners. Even so, this new globally dispersed workforce still requires the same fast, seamless access to business-critical applications that they did in the office while accessing from anywhere on any device.
The new modern workplace has created additional complexity for IT teams as they must overcome the need for this flexibility, while improving security and increasing visibility into what users are accessing.
For IT to enable users to be productive they must consider a modern approach to fast, secure connectivity.
Zscaler Client Connector
A single app to enforce secure access to enterprise applications from anywhere
Zscaler Client Connector (formerly Zscaler App) is a lightweight application that sits on the endpoint device and enables the modern workforce to securely work from anywhere regardless of device, location, or application being accessed. Whether users leverage a corporate-managed, BYOD, POS system, or RF scanner, traffic is automatically forwarded to the closest Zscaler service edge and determines if a user is looking to access the open internet, a SaaS app, or an internal app running in a public or private cloud or the data center. User traffic is then auto-routed through the correct Zero Trust service, whether it is Zscaler Internet Access (ZIA) for secure internet and SaaS access or Zscaler Private Access (ZPA) for secure access to internal applications. IT admins can also receive valuable insight into business app, network, and device performance with Zscaler Digital Experience (which integrates with Client Connector).
Benefits of Client Connector
One app for all your zero trust access needs
Auto-route traffic for seamless user experience and IT simplicity
By default, Client Connector routes mobile traffic through the Zscaler cloud for secure access and the optimal route. It can also detect trusted networks and captive portals to prioritize the user experience.
Device posture and fingerprinting for context-aware access and security
By integrating with endpoint security providers, Client Connector is able to enforce context-aware security that ensures that devices are mapped to specific users based on criteria like device model, platform, and OS. If credentials or device are stolen, security remains intact.
Gain more visibility with an intuitive dashboard
The Client Connector portal allows admins to view data for devices with Client Connector deployed and manage policies specifically for Client Connector.
Support all the devices your business requires OSs
Zscaler Client Connector supports the majority of device types including laptops, smart phones, tablets, and platforms such as iOS, Android, Windows, MacOS, CentOS, and Ubuntu 20.04
Make it easy to enforce enrollment of Zscaler Client Connector
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.
Make deployment almost invisible to users via auto install and MDM
Easily deploy the Client Connector app onto endpoint devices to minimize user friction via MDM, Microsoft Intune, LDAP, or ADFS. Silent deployment auto-installs client and SSL certificates onto device during enrollment.
