Zscaler and the Center for Internet Security Announce CIS CyberMarket Partnership

San Jose, California, May, 30, 2023

Zscaler, Inc., the leader in cloud security, and the Center for Internet Security, Inc. (CIS®), a non-profit cybersecurity organization committed to keeping the connected world a safer place, today announced their official partnership in CIS CyberMarket® to improve cybersecurity for state, local, tribal and territorial (SLTT) governments.

As the first and only StateRAMP authorized cloud native inline security provider, Zscaler empowers public sector organizations to realize the full potential of the cloud and mobility by securely connecting users to applications from any device, anywhere. Through this partnership, Zscaler’s Zero Trust Exchange will provide CIS CyberMarket® with modern zero trust solutions that reduce costs, eliminate internet attack surfaces, prevent lateral threat movements and defend against the most serious cyber threats.

Zscaler will offer the Zero Trust Exchange platform of solutions at reduced rates for members of the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC) to encourage collaboration around cyber issues and the Elections Infrastructure Information Sharing and Analysis Center (EI-ISAC) to support election integrity.

The Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange is powered by the world’s largest security cloud, with more than 10 years of operational excellence enabling the processing of more than 280 billion daily transactions and stopping over nine billion threats and policy violations per day for the largest, most demanding organizations around the globe.

“As cyber threats continue to evolve, SLTT organizations remain under tremendous pressure to mitigate attacks and ensure security,” said Ian Milligan-Pate, Area Vice President of Sales of Zscaler. “Zscaler is proud to partner with CIS to improve the security posture of these vital customers while also enhancing citizen services and operations.”  

CIS CyberMarket is a collaborative purchasing program that serves U.S. State, Local, Tribal and Territorial (SLTT) government organizations, nonprofit entities, and public health and education institutions to improve cybersecurity through cost-effective group procurement. By leveraging the collective purchasing power of participating public and nonprofit organizations, CIS CyberMarket works with industry-leading cybersecurity providers to secure significant group purchasing opportunities to meet the ever-evolving cybersecurity needs of customer organizations.

“Public sector organizations are highly targeted in the contemporary threat environment and need solutions they can trust to secure their sensitive data and protect their networks and endpoints,” said Gina Chapman, CIS Executive Vice President of Sales and Business Services. “We are excited to have leading companies like Zscaler to bring CIS CyberMarket customers more low-cost options to bolster their cyber defenses.”
