Sunnyvale, California, February 14, 2011
Zscaler, Inc., the leader in cloud security, today unveiled Zscaler MobileTM , which brings Zscaler’s award-winning security to mobile devices. Zscaler Mobile adds a uniform way to secure the mobile experience for small to large organizations. In tandem with Zscaler’s existing Web and email cloud security services, Zscaler Mobile enforces the same policy for users wherever they go, across all their devices. The new solution ensures protection for leading smartphones and tablets including iPhone, iPad and Android devices.
Attacks targeted at mobile devices are rising rapidly as the line between personal and business usage is getting blurred. “Employees want to bring their iPads to work,” said Jim Reavis, Executive Director and Co-founder of Cloud Security Alliance. “These devices run the gamut of applications, from Facebook, YouTube, Pandora, to enterprise apps like email and salesforce automation. With Zscaler Mobile, employees can now use their iPads for work, without risk from malware and threats.”
Extending Cloud Security to Mobile Devices
Zscaler launched its cloud-delivered, web security service in 2008 and is now protecting millions of users in 140 countries. Over a billion web transactions from customers ranging from G2000 enterprises to governments to SMBs are secured by Zscaler daily. Zscaler Mobile leverages this proven infrastructure to extend protection to mobile devices. Key features include:
“Zscaler Mobile introduces a paradigm shift in mobile security,” said Jay Chaudhry, CEO, Zscaler. “Enforcement in the cloud, as compared to just another app on the phone, sets Zscaler apart. Under Zscaler’s security umbrella, CIO’s and CISO’s can enable their business with new smart devices to improve business productivity.”
Zscaler’s unique solution enforces policy in the cloud, not on the device. This means all network content is scanned, both user traffic and app traffic, to ensure that all malicious content is blocked in the cloud – long before it reaches the mobile device, or the corporate network.
Zscaler enables the world’s leading organizations to securely transform their networks and applications for a mobile and cloud-first world. Its flagship services, Zscaler Internet Access and Zscaler Private Access, create fast, secure connections between users and applications, regardless of device, location, or network. Zscaler services are 100% cloud delivered and offer the simplicity, enhanced security, and improved user experience that traditional appliances or hybrid solutions are unable to match. Used in more than 185 countries, Zscaler operates a massive, global cloud security platform that protects thousands of enterprises and government agencies from cyberattacks and data loss.
