Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange

The architecture for accelerating secure digital transformation

Transformation brings challenges

Application transformation is well underway with applications residing in SaaS and the public cloud, while being accessed by mobile employees, customers, and partners. Business no longer takes place on a trusted corporate network or inside a security perimeter. The legacy hub-and-spoke network with a castle-and-moat security models, which worked well during the pre-cloud and pre-mobile world, do not work anymore.

Three core attributes of the Zero Trust Exchange

Enhancements in the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange platform expand your ability to bring zero trust to your environment while protecting against threats and data loss and simplifying policy creation.

New APIs automatically create policies for apps and users, while machine learning allows for auto-segmentation of application workloads. These innovations accelerate policy-making and simplify microsegmentation.

Traditional firewalls publish your apps on the internet so they can be found by users—but also by bad actors. The Zero Trust Exchange makes apps invisible and accessible only by authorized users.
