San Jose, California, June 18, 2015
Zscaler, the Internet security company, today announced record bookings, revenue and renewals for its third fiscal quarter, ended April 30, 2015. Organizations of all sizes adopted Zscaler’s cloud-based Internet security platform in record numbers, and new customer bookings more than doubled over the same quarter last year.
New customer acquisition was particularly strong in the third fiscal quarter. Zscaler booked a multi- million dollar subscription with one of the world’s largest banks to protect their 150,000 employees from cyber-threats. Mid-market client adoption also soared as companies turned to the Zscaler platform to provide excellent Internet security that is easy to use, easy to manage and economically compelling.
Existing clients expressed their satisfaction with Zscaler by renewing their subscriptions and adding new services at record levels, highlighted by adoption of Zscaler’s cloud-based next generation firewall and advanced persistent threat protection. During Q3, Zscaler blocked more than two billion threats and enforced nearly 25 billion security policies for its clients.
Zscaler’s new “break free from security appliances” campaign was the talk of the 2015 RSA Conference– featuring conference attendees taking out their frustration with security appliances by smashing them with baseball bats and sledgehammers on the trade show floor.
“We are seeing accelerated adoption of Zscaler’s Internet security platform and strong client demand for advanced persistent threat protection and our new next generation firewall as organizations recognize the value of cloud-delivered integrated security platforms that provide better protection, reduced complexity and superior economics than on-premise alternatives,” said Jay Chaudhry, CEO of Zscaler. “With another quarter of record results and continued rapid growth, we are exceptionally well-positioned going into the final quarter of our fiscal year.”
