Get the benefit of sandboxing for all users in all locations—without deploying anything, anywhere

Sandboxing, a behavioral analysis technique that has become popular recently, allows you to detonate suspicious or unknown files in a virtual environment to determine if they are malicious before they get to your users. Sandboxes are typically confined to the data center because they are expensive and difficult to run at scale. And, like any single product, no matter how well a sandbox works, it only reveals a limited number of threats.

Zscaler’s cloud platform inspects all internet traffic from all locations for all users, so you don’t need to deploy sandboxes in dozens (or hundreds) of locations. The processing power of Zscaler Cloud Sandbox lets us inspect all unknown or suspicious files. And because we inspect all SSL traffic, the common ploy of hiding behind encryption fails as well. Malicious files are instantly blocked, quarantined, or flagged, based on policy. File types include:

  • Windows executables (32-bit and 64-bit)
  • Windows libraries
  • Microsoft Office documents
  • Adobe PDF files and Flash files
  • Java apps and applets
  • Android APK files
  • Screen savers
  • RAR archives
  • ZIP archives
  • More

  • Because Zscaler is always inline, you can stop devices from getting infected by protecting all users at all locations, on any device.
  • Zscaler is a platform, not a single point product, so you get holistic protection derived from correlation across a number of different security perspectives.
  • Zscaler offers a global solution, so our sandboxes see more suspicious content than any single deployment could. You’ll get the benefit of that visibility.
  • The first time we detect an incident for a single user we propagate protection for all users in near real-time—no single deployment could be updated that fast or that frequently. The Zscaler footprint provides visibility and protection.
