What cloud applications
are we REALLY using?

Zscaler Cloud Application Control gives you complete visibility
and control in a single click

Do you know what your cloud users are up to?

Understanding Shadow IT

The ease of adopting cloud apps has enabled the tremendous growth of Shadow IT. Users are using cloud apps to get their job done, but IT is usually the last one to know.

Lack of true visibility and control

Getting complete visibility across cloud app usage is a challenge. Cloud apps like webmail and cloud storage are used for both personal and business purposes. How do you distinguish a user streaming a training video from a user streaming a movie?

Threat risks from the unknown

Cloud apps pose very real threats and they’re easily leveraged for malware. Users can sidestep the data loss prevention measures and compromise industry and regulatory compliance.

Get to know your cloud apps with Zscaler

Discover all your Shadow IT

Zscaler is built on a massively scalable, global proxy platform which sits inline and sees all cloud-based traffic from all users, including ssl traffic - on or off network. You’ll see more user traffic and find more cloud application usage than traditional vendors that have inspection limitations.

Control your complete cloud footprint

Full inline inspection delivers visibility into all sanctioned and unsanctioned user apps. Define granular policies that let you take full control your cloud services, such as the ability to upload or download files or post comments or videos based on different user or group identity.

Stop threats and restore compliance

Due to performance limitations, most vendors simply can’t fully inspect encrypted traffic. Zscaler’s Cloud platform elastically scales to inspect ssl traffic from all your users. You’ve have better visibility into the known and unknown cloud apps being used, and find more malware where it hides.
