Zscaler Internet Access and secure SD-WAN solutions

Reduce costs and complexity

Before: Hub-and-spoke architectures cannot deliver the fast user experience required for the growing use of cloud apps.Cloud apps demand direct-to-internet connections. But, providing SD-WAN security with appliances is expensive.

After: Zscaler and SD-WAN solutions enable secure local internet breakouts without the cost and complexity of traditional network and security appliances.

Simplify IT operations

Before: Deploying and managing security appliances or VNFs at each of your branches is costly and time consuming. Plus, network security appliances weren’t built to meet the demands of modern cloud apps.

After: Zscaler and SD-WAN simplify branch office operations by delivering security as a cloud service and using software-defined policies to route traffic.

Security and scale

Before: You can’t afford to recreate your security stack at every branch office. Cost and complexity force companies to sacrifice security by deploying only URL filtering or bypassing SSL inspection, which leaves branches vulnerable.

After: Zscaler provides identical protection for users wherever they connect.

SD-WAN simplifies branch office operations and efficiently connects your branches to the internet. This makes establishing local breakouts easy. But those connections still need to be secured. That’s why you need Zscaler Internet Access. We deliver the entire security stack as a cloud security service to secure SD-WAN and your direct-to-internet connections.
