Zscaler extends cloud platform with leading AI/Machine Learning technology
San Jose, California, August 24, 2018
Zscaler, Inc., the leader in cloud security, today announced that it has acquired market-leading artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technology and the development team of stealth security startup TrustPath. The acquisition extends Zscaler’s ability to derive intelligence from the 50 billion transactions processed daily at peak periods by its cloud to identify anomalous traffic, build user behavioral profiles, compute enterprise risk posture, and detect sophisticated targeted attacks as they emerge. Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
TrustPath developed artificial intelligence-based algorithms through machine learning to identify new threats, resulting in enhanced security efficacy and accelerated incident response.
“Zscaler’s cloud security platform is helping leading global enterprises securely transform their infrastructure for the cloud and mobile world,” said Zscaler CEO Jay Chaudhry. “TrustPath’s technology complements the broad and deep security capabilities that Zscaler has already built and further enhances the platform that is protecting over 200 of the Forbes Global 2000 companies.”
The Zscaler platform, which includes behavior analytics, machine learning, Cloud IPS, and zero-day detection, was purpose-built for extensibility. Innovations like TrustPath’s AI and ML technology can be incorporated quickly to deliver new, sophisticated capabilities and protections for Zscaler customers.
