Zscaler and Cisco SD-WAN
Enabling secure SD-WAN for enterprise organizations

Fast user

Enable a fast, secure user experience while optimizing application traffic and flow. Simply route internet traffic locally to Zscaler from Viptela vEdge routers in the branch.

Reduce costs and
simplify branch IT

Simplify traffic routing, optimize performance, and reduce MPLS costs by leveraging multiple network connection types and delivering the entire security stack as a cloud-based service. The combined solution eliminates the need to buy, deploy, and manage gateway security appliances or virtualized machines for every branch.


Ensure identical protection for users wherever they connect—with policies that follow users wherever they go. Define and immediately enforce security and access policies across all locations from a single console, and rapidly deploy new security services with just a few clicks.

Cloud Security for SD-WAN

SD-WAN is transforming branch office networking, reducing MPLS costs, and optimizing performance. However, ensuring SD-WAN security is a critical factor for broad adoption, especially for cloud and internet applications. With Zscaler and Cisco SD-WAN (Viptela), you can secure all internet traffic without backhauling over MPLS to centralized data centers. See how Cisco SD-WAN and Zscaler are transforming SD-WAN together.
