Zscaler Wins 2013 CEO World Award for Best New Product

San Jose, California, December 17, 2013

Zscaler, the global security cloud for the mobile enterprise, today announced Zscaler for APTs has been selected as the winner of the prestigious CEO World Awards in the Best New Product category. The annual CEO World Awards program encompasses the world’s best in leadership, innovation, organizational performance, new products and services, CEO case studies, and customer satisfaction programs from every major industry in the world.

Zscaler for APTs is the industry’s first cloud-based security solution to address the entire advanced persistent threat (APT) and advanced targeted attack (ATA) defense lifecycle, including protection, detection and remediation. Zscaler for APTs provides continuous coverage of any user on any device in any location with proactive protection and real-time advanced security analytics, a significant advance over today’s narrowly-focused point appliance and niche behavioral analysis solutions that fail to provide a complete view of the enterprise threat landscape or address the entire defense lifecycle.

“Organizations are challenged to protect against advanced attacks, such zero-day attacks and botnets, especially in complex cloud and mobile environments because of the limitations of traditional on-premise security appliances,” said Jay Chaudhry, CEO, Zscaler. “However, Zscaler has developed an innovative solution for cloud-based APT protection, which continues to be validated by our customers and industry recognition, such as the CEO World Awards.”
