San Jose, California, September 20, 2016
CentraComm announced today the availability of its Managed Services for Zscaler® to the public. This service, aimed at reducing the cost and complexity of running a secure enterprise-class network, allows CentraComm to remotely manage and secure web traffic for organizations across the globe utilizing Zscaler’s worldwide cloud network. Bolstered by extensive training, testing, and certifications, this service complements the other managed services that CentraComm offers to help companies offset the time and skill set needed to maintain a secure network infrastructure.
The joint solution brings businesses a world-class security solution built on the best technology and the most trusted relationships. CentraComm’s team brings hundreds of years of accumulated expertise in network security to provide a rock solid managed service to organizations to help them simplify and control costs for IT and security. This expertise can now be delivered to customers anywhere in the world on Zscaler’s global security cloud of more than a hundred data centers worldwide.
Zscaler is the largest cloud security provider with a multi-tenant architecture that supports over 15 million users across 185 countries and blocks over 125 million threats each day, all without any hardware or software to deploy and manage. Zscaler’s platform includes URL filtering, malware and advanced threat protection, cloud sandboxing, and cloud firewall. With a complete security stack in the cloud and delivered as a service, enterprises can simply point their Internet traffic to Zscaler and avoid the cost and complexity of backhauling traffic to a centralized gateway or deploying and managing security appliances in branch offices.
“As more and more of our customers moved to the cloud, we looked for new ways to support them with the same high level of service and trust they have come to expect from CentraComm,” said Lynn Child, president of CentraComm. “Because of Zscaler’s purpose-built and scalable platform, we are able to focus our expertise on managing customer success as they adopt security in the cloud. That lets us continue to push the envelope on services we deliver while never taking an eye off the security and efficiency of our customers’ networks.”
"Zscaler and CentraComm are both focused on delivering organizations simple and scalable security solutions in the cloud so they can focus on their business, not on managing security appliances,” said Patrick Foxhoven, CIO at Zscaler. "The combination of Zscaler to protect an organization’s employees wherever they are – at headquarters, a branch office, or on the road – with CentraComm’s expertise in management and customer service provides companies with world-class security and peace of mind."
