Zscaler Cloud Protection

Taking the work out of securing cloud workloads and data

Accelerate your cloud strategy with confidence

The cloud is driving digital transformation, ushering in a new era of scale, performance, and agility. Unfortunately, the pace of adoption has created a massive attack surface and increased business risk.

The culprit? The attempt to lift-and-shift data center security, which doesn’t work for the cloud. Cloud apps are dynamic, ephemeral, and distributed. Legacy data center security isn’t. A new approach is needed.

Zscaler Cloud Protection

Zscaler Cloud Protection delivers a new approach that takes the operational complexity and headaches out of cloud workload security. Our innovative zero trust architecture reduces business risk by automatically remediating security gaps, minimizing the attack surface, and eliminating lateral threat movement.

Zscaler Cloud Protection consists of four solutions:

“99% of cloud security incidents are the customer’s own fault. Implementing a CSPM offering will reduce cloud-related security incidents due to misconfiguration.”

- Gartner

Ensure the proper configuration and compliance of cloud platforms

Misconfigurations of cloud applications are a key vulnerability for organizations and one of the most common causes of data exposure.

Zscaler Workload Posture quickly identifies, prioritizes, recommends, and remediates misconfigurations and improper permissions within your cloud environments, allowing you to remedy security gaps, restore compliance, and protect data.

Workload Posture in four steps

Secure user access to cloud apps without exposing apps to the internet

Remote access VPNs expose applications to the internet, allowing them to be discovered, attacked, and exploited.

  • Every internet-facing firewall is an attack surface
  • The greater the attack surface, the greater the business risk

As part of the Zero Trust Exchange, Zscaler Private Access (ZPA), provides your workforce, B2B customers and suppliers with secure access to cloud applications without exposing your applications to the internet.

Secure app-to-app connections across clouds, the internet, and data centers

Extending your trusted network to distributed public clouds with site-to-site VPN for connectivity is complicated, costly, and increases the risk of lateral threat movement. Zscaler Workload Communications provides zero trust app-to-app and app-to-internet connectivity across hybrid and multi-clouds.

  • Secure cloud-to-internet connections
  • Secure cloud-to-cloud connections
  • Secure cloud-to-data center connections

With simplified and automated connectivity to the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange, Zscaler Workload Communications eliminates the complexity and cost of hubs, virtual firewalls, and VPNs, and static, network-based policies.

Eliminate the risk of lateral movement of threats

IP-based network segmentation is not pragmatic for dynamic and ephemeral cloud workloads. Most segments are configured to be unnecessarily open, increasing your attack surface and allowing threats to move laterally.

Workload Segmentation is a simpler, faster way to segment app workloads. Using machine learning and cryptographic identity, you can quickly identify risk, apply segmentation, and automatically update policies—without network changes and with 90 percent fewer policy rules.
