Transform securely with Zscaler

Government agencies are in the midst of cloud transformation. Applications are moving out of the data center and into the cloud. But such services extend the security perimeter to the internet. This shift requires agencies to consider how to best access the internet and secure applications no matter the user, device, or location.

The Zscaler FedRAMP Cloud provides agencies with secure access to the internet and applications. It helps agencies improve security, while reducing cost and complexity and delivering a better user experience.

Relying on UTM and NGFW appliances to secure internet traffic is costly, results in appliance sprawl, and compromises branch security.

Zscaler Private Access: Create a Trust-to-Trust connection as an alternative to the traditional TIC

Government agencies are in the midst of a transformation. Applications are moving out of the data center and into the cloud and users have moved off the internal network. Consider how to best allow users to access applications from remote locations from any device—government issued or not—without introducing risk.

VPN over TIC = Latency

ZPA connects trust-to-trust = Efficiency

Zscaler's FedRAMP Authorized-Dedicated Zero Trust Remote Access Platform delivers security as a service by securely connecting trusted users to trusted internal applications. ZPA eliminates the need for traditional on-premise VPN appliances, that carry high operational overhead and require compromises among security, cost, and user experience.

Modern, always-on security delivered by Zscaler FedRAMP Cloud

By moving federal government Trusted Internet Connections (TIC) security controls and other advanced security services to the Zscaler FedRAMP-authorized cloud platform, agency leaders can improve how they see, protect, and control user traffic to SaaS applications and the internet.
