Solutions > Data Protection and Compliance Assurance

The Most Comprehensive Data Protection Platform

Unified visibility and enforcement across all applications, locations, and users

Data protection and compliance assurance is harder than ever

The move from applications residing in the data center to a digital business model in the cloud has led to the widespread adoption of SaaS and public cloud applications. The side effect is that data is now widely distributed and extremely easy to inadvertently expose as the control of this data becomes distributed as well. This makes visibility of data exposure and compliance difficult if not impossible to ensure with legacy offerings.

The challenge of data protection in a cloud world

Data protection icon data distributed

Data is everywhere

Data is spread across clouds, SaaS, on users’ devices and in the data center.
Data protection icon data hidden

Data is encrypted

Connections to applications are encrypted and data exposure is largely hidden.
Data protection icon data unknown

Compliance is unknown

Application deployment and usage are spread across locations and groups making unified assurance impossible.
Data protection icon visibility fragmented

Visibility is siloed

Separated tools that are siloed across teams make the true impact of data exposure unknown across the organization.

What makes our data protection platform unique?

The Zscaler Cloud Security Platform provides unified data protection capabilities for internet, data center, and SaaS applications, and ensures that configurations in public cloud applications match best practice standards to prevent data exposure and maintain compliance.

Data protection icon unified protection

Unified protections – Zscaler Cloud Data Protection policy follows users to provide consistent security while delivering the same level of protection for data in motion across locations and unified data-at-rest protections across SaaS and public cloud applications.

Data protection icon tls ssl inspection

Full SSL inspection of all traffic - Don’t settle for partial traffic inspection. Around 70% of outbound traffic is encrypted and thus not subject to inspection by traditional DLP solutions. Zscaler, a proxy by design, doesn’t have the capacity limitations of appliances and inspects all SSL traffic.

Data protection icon compliance reporting

Compliance reporting and remediation - Enables unified visibility and control across SaaS and public cloud application deployments, measuring their configurations against 14 different compliance standards and providing visibility into compliance violations and automating remediation.

Data protection icon elastic scale

Elastic scale with inline enforcement - Zscaler sits inline so it can block sensitive information before it leaves your network—instead of being limited to damage control after data has been compromised. Zscaler 100% cloud services are user-based, not capacity-based, so your data protection scales elastically with performance guaranteed by SLAs.

Data protection icon integrated platform

Fully integrated platform service - Roll out data protection in minutes, not months. No architectural changes are needed to implement Cloud Data Protection because it is part of the fully integrated Zscaler platform of security services, eliminating the need to stand up and maintain point products.
