Zscaler Named JMP Securities “Hot 100” Company

San Jose, California, August 6, 2014

Zscaler, the Internet security company, today announced it has been named one of the “Hot 100” best privately held software companies by JMP Securities, a full-service investment bank. For the past five years, the “Hot 100” report has identified leading privately-held software companies that show exceptional progress and potential within their sectors. Specifically, the JMP Securities research team looks at financial growth, products and services, quality of leadership, customers and market potential.

“Zscaler sits at the intersection of some of the most important technology trends—cloud computing, mobility and the Internet of things—all of which must be protected. Those trends, along with the increasing threat and regulatory landscapes are driving rapid adoption of our Security as a Service platform by thousands of leading enterprises, governments and military organizations around the world”, said Jay Chaudhry, CEO of Zscaler. “The recognition by JMP Securities as a ‘Hot 100’ company is further validation of the value our customers are receiving from our disruptive approach to Internet security.”

The world of IT security has undergone tremendous transformation, sparked by the consumerization of the enterprise, the adoption of cloud computing and the evolution of the sources of threats from hackers to organized crime and governments. While traditional security appliances were developed in a time when none of this existed, Zscaler’s modern cloud security platform enables businesses to embrace innovation securely, while delivering a superior user experience. Just as cloud computing transformed the market for CRM, Zscaler is transforming the market for Internet security.

Achieving a place on the “Hot 100” list is the latest in a series of accolades for Zscaler. Recently the company was recognized by CRN as a 2014 Emerging Vendor and was also positioned as a “leader” in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateways for the fourth consecutive year.
