Zscaler Offers Free Integrated Email and Web Security to Google Postini Users

San Jose, California, September 13, 2012

Zscaler, the Cloud Security Company, provider of the world’s largest security cloud, today announced it is offering its integrated email and web security services free for six months to all Google Postini customers. This in response to Google’s announcement that it will retire its Postini service and migrate existing customers to Google Apps, leaving those who don’t want to switch either vulnerable to spam, phishing and other email-security exploits, or faced with the difficult choice of migrating to an appliance-based solution that lacks real cloud security.

“Postini customers have a legitimate concern about their email security in light of recent Gmail account hacks,” said Rebecca MacDonald, vice president of Marketing for Zscaler. "Even security analysts are recommending Postini users who want to make the switch wait until the second half of 2013 to allow Google time to address the transition. With Zscaler, Postini users benefit by gaining a full-featured email security solution today, plus the added protection of the Zscaler web security solution, which has been recognized as the leader and “most visionary” in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant report for Secure Web Gateways, and awarded a 2012 Marketing Penetration Leadership Award by Frost & Sullivan.”

Recognizing that web and email security solutions are most effective when they are both integrated and delivered through the cloud, this free offering is an easy transition from Postini’s cloud-based service to Zscaler, with no hardware or software to install.
