Sunnyvale, California, May 27, 2011

Zscaler, the leader in cloud security, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of the “Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateway.” Vendors in the Magic Quadrant are evaluated based on ability to execute and completeness of vision. (i)

“Zscaler’s position in the Leader’s quadrant for secure web gateway makes sense based on our own assessment of their capabilities, and the conclusions of our customers that are using Zscaler," said Adam Rice, Chief Security Officer of Tata Communications, a leading global service, and Zscaler partner. “Our joint customers benefit from Zscaler's cloud security solution, which provides comprehensive protection against both web- and email-borne threats, with no hardware or software to install.  As more of our customers take on cloud-delivered security and shift away from appliances, we fully expect that Zscaler will be widely accepted and adopted because of the comprehensive security capabilities the solution provides."

Zscaler’s unique multi-tenant cloud architecture requires no hardware or software for deployment. In addition, it enforces user-specific policy uniformly across locations (e.g. office, home or airport) and across devices (laptops, smartphones, etc.) which is unique to Zscaler.

Thanks to a fully global cloud deployment, users are secured around the world in real time, and receive unparalleled protection from web and email threats, as well protection against Data Loss wherever they are.  With over 40 top-tier data centers across the globe, the most in the industry, Zscaler supports millions of users in over 160 countries.  The Zscaler Security Cloud secures billions of transactions per day, and blocks more than 10 million malicious threats daily to transparently provide secure web and email to businesses of every size.

“We believe that Gartner’s positioning of Zscaler as a leader in their Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateway is reaffirmation of what thousands of enterprises have experienced over the past two years,” said Jay Chaudhry Founder and CEO of Zscaler.  “We see this as further evidence of what our customers see in Zscaler, and what they have chosen with their wallets.”
