Zscaler Expands Partner Ecosystem
San Jose, California, October 21, 2014
Zscaler, the Internet security company, today announced an expansion of its Technology Partner Program that will offer enterprises, governments and military organizations best in class solutions that are pre-integrated with the Zscaler Internet security platform.
In a separate announcement today, Zscaler also announced the Fall 2014 release of its Internet security and compliance platform with breakthrough new capabilities for Advanced Persistent Threat protection, guest Wifi security, global administration, policy management and reporting and instant assessment of security risks.
No single security technology or vendor can fully protect everyone against all of today’s rapidly evolving threats. Zscaler’s Technology Partner Program brings together an ecosystem of complementary solutions to help organizations implement the best security infrastructure with the lowest TCO.
Zscaler’s cloud-based security platform and robust APIs integrate with partner technologies and scale out far more easily than on-premise appliances. Additionally, these integrations enable organizations to deploy Zscaler extremely quickly—witness a recent global deployment spanning more than 60,000 employees that was accomplished in an afternoon.
“Today’s enterprises have complex IT environments with a wide variety of hardware and software products from multiple vendors. The task of stitching various products together often falls on the IT organization, increasing operational costs and exposing the organization to additional security risks,” said Punit Minocha, vice president, business development for Zscaler. “The Zscaler Technology Partner Program makes it easy to integrate our award-winning Internet security platform with best in class complementary technologies and solutions. By working together, we deliver better, easier to manage security that safeguards the enterprise more effectively than any appliance-based security solution.”
