Data Protection and Privacy

Considerations for a cloud-enabled world

Data privacy, compliance, and security are at the core of Zscaler’s business

To make compliance, reporting, and data privacy easier, we built them into our architecture

Zscaler built from scratch an infinitely scalable, cost-effective, multitenant cloud security architecture that comprises three key components for control, enforcement, and logging—all of which are critical for compliance.

Control Plane: Central Authority

Brain of the cloud that manages monitoring, updates, policy and configuration settings, and threat intelligence

Enforcement Plane: Zscaler Enforcement Nodes

Security, management, and compliance policies are enforced consistently, no matter where the user connects

Logging Plane: Nanolog Technology

Transmits logs over secure connections, and may be used to generate reports, streamed to a SIEM, or written to disk according to regulations

Zscaler and PCI DSS

As companies embrace digital transformation and the borders of the enterprise network blur, maintaining Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance has become increasingly complex. Zscaler is committed to helping companies secure customer payment data in accordance with PCI DSS.

Zscaler and HIPAA

Complying with HIPAA regulations and protecting sensitive patient data can be a challenge as patient care methods continue to evolve. Zscaler helps healthcare organizations improve their security postures and enforce consistent security and access policies for all users, wherever their users are working with patients–in a healthcare facility, online, or through a mobile device.

Zscaler’s FedRAMP Authorized cloud architecture securely connects teleworkers to agency applications

The Department of Homeland Security Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (DHS CISA) issued new TIC 3.0 guidance allowing agencies to use direct-to-cloud connections through cloud service providers that meet CISA guidelines. Now, agencies can avoid the risk of a VPN exposing infrastructure, and the latency created by forcing traffic through TIC before going out to cloud destinations.

The Zscaler FedRAMP Authorized telework solution offers agencies a modern cloud architecture that deploys quickly, provides a fast user experience, and scales easily to handle a surge in telework.
