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 doing?

Understand ghost computing

The rise of cloud applications has led to strong growth in Shadow IT. Employees use cloud apps for their jobs, but IT is usually the last to know.


Lack of visibility and control

Obtaining complete visibility into the use of cloud applications is a real challenge. Cloud applications such as webmail and cloud storage are used for personal and business purposes. How do you distinguish a user watching a training video from a user watching a movie?


Still unknown threat risks

Main targets of malware, cloud applications represent real threats. Users can bypass data loss prevention measures, and compromise compliance with industry standards and applicable regulations.

Shed light on your Shadow IT

Zscaler is built on a highly scalable global proxy platform that sits online and sees all cloud-based traffic from all users, including SSL traffic, on or off the network. You will see more user traffic and discover more use of cloud apps than with traditional providers that have inspection limitations.


Control your entire cloud footprint

Full integrated inspection provides visibility into all authorized or sanctioned user applications. Define targeted policies that allow you to control all of your cloud services, including the ability to upload or download files, or post comments or videos based on a user's or group identity.


Stop threats and restore compliance

Due to limited performance, most providers simply cannot inspect all encrypted traffic. Zscaler's scalable cloud platform scales to support SSL traffic inspection for all your users. You gain greater visibility into known and unknown cloud applications being used, and detect more malware where it lurks.
