How Zscaler streamlines divestitures

how-zscaler-streamlines-divestitures

Divestitures roadmap

01
Control
  • Create a carve-out Zscaler tenant and deploy the Zscaler client to conveyed employees

02
Segment
  • Deploy app connectors to allow conveyed user access to TSA’d applications and resources in a zero trust architecture
  • Forgo the need for a "clone-and-go" network by leveraging the Zero Trust Exchange as the intermediary for conveyed applications
  • Move conveyed employees to public Wi-Fi, effectively removing conveyed users from the network while staying productive

03
Separate
  • Integrate other risk profiling capabilities to provide dynamic policy based on security posture
  • Use workload-to-workload zero trust capabilities to further separate conveyed or TSA application traffic

04
TSA exit
  • Close out any network or security service TSA
  • Hand over tenant administration to the separated entity’s IT provider
  • Remove the divested entity's identity provider, if any, from the carve-out tenant’s policy
  • Remove any legacy VPN access or similar to TSA’d or conveyed applications
