Zscaler Workload Segmentation for Zero Trust Segmentation in Your Cloud and Data Center
More Complex For Attackers. 10x Simpler For Defenders
Zscaler Workload Segmentation is the only zero trust platform that microsegments data and applications using their cryptographic identity fingerprint rather than address-based controls. We focus on the data first because that’s what your adversaries are after. Further, Zscaler Workload Segmentation eschews the idea that address-based controls are adequate to protect your assets, especially in cloud environments where security teams have less control over the network. Zscaler Workload Segmentation supports all major cloud platforms.
Support business initiatives, without traditional security roadblocks
Traditional security tools can be antithetical to speed and efficiency, but Zscaler Workload Segmentation offers a different approach. Zscaler Workload Segmentation places protection as close to your data as is possible. Our application-aware policies travel with all applications and services, meaning that potential compromises will be contained to the affected asset, not the entire network. In addition, with Zscaler Workload Segmentation, security teams no longer need to worry about shadow IT entering the environment. Zscaler Workload Segmentation automatically identifies all communicating software and recommends zero trust policies which can be applied with one click.
Apply gap-free protection
Security tools that rely on IP addresses, ports, and protocols are not fit to protect modern network architectures. Zscaler Workload Segmentation decouples workload security from IP address constructs by creating a unique identity for every communicating application or service in your networks. This approach allows you to avoid issues with IP-based controls and ensures that your networks are secure, independent of network location.
Continually assess risk
Most security practitioners know that their corporate networks are vulnerable to compromise, but most can’t quantify the level of risk these networks pose to the organization, particularly related to application exposure. Zscaler Workload Segmentation automatically measures your visible network attack surface to understand how many possible application communication pathways are in use, quantifies risk exposure, and uses machine learning to recommend zero trust security policies that dramatically reduce your probability of data breach.
