Zscaler protects your guest Wi-Fi users and your company by securing the network and ensuring compliance with privacy laws and other regulations. You can set it up in a matter of minutes, because Zscaler is 100% in the cloud, so there’s no hardware or software to deploy or manage.
Our guest lounge had its internet access terminated—all due to a rogue guest Wi-Fi user downloading copyrighted materials that led the copyright holder to complain to our ISP. We now ensure that Zscaler is enabled on all our lounges.
We want to be the most trusted retailer. So we need to provide not only a technically safe public Wi-Fi experience, but also protect our customers from inappropriate and offensive materials, which can directly link to our brand. Zscaler gives me peace of mind that we are doing everything we can with a world-leading company to protect our customers and colleagues.
For most organizations, providing guest Wi-Fi is a chance to deliver a good, seamless user experience and a positive reflection of the company’s brand. But with that goodwill come problems that pose risks to you and your visitors.
Left unprotected, guest networks can become a liability as users download copyrighted content or otherwise inappropriate material or leak sensitive data. And visitors aren’t your only concern. Employees are known to flock to the guest network to bypass security controls on the corporate network—and those devices bouncing between secure and unsecure networks can leave you exposed.
Applying security and control to the guest Wi-Fi network hasn’t been easy. You’ve had to backhaul all of your Internet traffic across your WAN, which is slow and costly, or deploy appliances at all of your sites, which is slower and costlier. Besides, they’re only good for policy—not security. Another school of thought says to just get a separate broadband connection and give up on security, but no one wants their guests exposed to malware.
With the Zscaler cloud security platform, you can protect your guest users and enforce your acceptable use policies—no backhauling, no boxes.
All you need to do is change your DNS settings to Zscaler. It’s that simple. And, because DNS alone is insufficient for protecting users, Zscaler intelligently routes all suspicious traffic to its cloud security platform for full inline content inspection.
Zscaler’s cloud security platform also allows you to route all of your guest Wi-Fi traffic via a GRE/IPsec tunnel for the highest level of security and compliance.
Set up guest Wi-Fi security in a matter of minutes—with the Zscaler cloud-based platform, there’s no hardware or software to deploy and manage.
