It all starts with our architecture. Zscaler built from scratch an infinitely scalable, cost-effective, and ultra-fast cloud security architecture that integrates three key components for control, enforcement, and logging: the Central Authority (CA), Zscaler Enforcement Nodes (ZENs), and Nanolog Servers.
The Zscaler Central Authority monitors our entire security cloud and provides a central location for software and database updates, policy and configuration settings, and threat intelligence. The collection of Zscaler Central Authority instances together form the brain of the cloud, and they are geographically distributed for redundancy and performance.
Traffic is directed to the Zscaler Enforcement Node (ZEN) nearest the user, where security, management, and compliance policies are enforced consistently, no matter where the user connects. Each ZEN utilizes a full proxy architecture and is built to ensure that data is not written, but scanned in RAM only and then erased. Logs are continuously created in memory and forwarded to our logging module.
Built into ZENs, Nanolog technology performs lossless compression of logs, which are transmitted to Nanolog servers over secure connections and multicast for redundancy.Zscaler customers can mine billions of transaction logs to generate reports that provide insight into network utilization and traffic. We continuously update our dashboards and reporting and can stream logs to a third-party Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) service as they arrive. Customers can choose to have logs written to disk in a physical location that complies with regional regulations.
