Zscaler Workload Communications secures workload-to-internet, multicloud, and multi-region traffic for your mission-critical cloud workloads with the power of the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange™.

Why It Matters
icon-firewall
Many enterprises rely on legacy security architectures to secure their cloud workloads:
  • Multiple third-party tools (firewall, VPN, TLS/SSL inspection, DLP, etc.) for extra layers of protection
  • Backhauling traffic over legacy infrastructure for inspection and protection
  • Native security solutions from public cloud providers

icon-risk-managemen
However, these legacy architectures increase operational overhead and degrade performance while also:
  • Amplifying lateral movement
  • Increasing operational complexity and cost
  • Providing inconsistent threat and data protection

Benefits

Secure your cloud workloads with modern zero trust architecture

Radically simplify cloud workload security with the Zero Trust Exchange, the world's largest inline cloud security platform.

How It Works

Workload-to-internet communications

Cloud workloads can access any internet or SaaS destination (e.g., third-party APIs, software updates) with a scalable, reliable security solution that inspects all transactions.

Workload-to-workload communications

Workloads in one public cloud can securely communicate with any public or private cloud as well as across VPCs, zones, and regions in the same cloud—no need for VPNs or risky, complex bespoke cloud routing.
