What is the best way to deploy Office 365?
In Microsoft’s Latest Connectivity Guidance, direct internet connections were clearly recommended over ExpressRoute.
The challenge with direct internet connections
How can you enable direct internet connections at all your office connections and still maintain security?Installing appliances has its challenges.
Security costs and compromisesleave you exposed
You can’t afford to recreate your security stack everywhere, and multifunction appliances aren’t up to the security and bandwidth tasks.
Office 365bandwidth demands
Each Office 365 user connection opens up to 20 persistent connections. Your appliances won’t be able to handle the load or scale with user growth.
Office 365 needs constantfirewall updates
Managing the updates and policies across all your appliances will be too complex. Missing one update can cause Office 365 to become inaccessible.
How Zscaler simplifies deployment
Offices and users directly connect to the Zscaler cloud, and the Zscaler cloud directly peers with the nearest Office 365 data center. Why is this a better deployment?
- Quick deployment Because there’s no hardware or software to upgrade prior to deployment, you can be up and running in minutes.
- One-click configuration Automatically configure Office 365 connection requirements with a single click.
- Bandwidth control Prioritize Office 365 to ensure that business-critical traffic takes precedence over recreational activities.
- Avoid hardware refreshes The Zscaler cloud has unlimited capacity to scale as your user demands grow. Appliances just can’t compete with that.
