Zscaler is a global cloud-based information security company that provides Internet security, web security, firewalls, sandboxing, SSL inspection, antivirus, vulnerability management, and granular control of user activity in cloud computing, mobile, and Internet of things environments. As of 2015, Zscaler provides automated threat forensics and dynamic malware protection against advanced cyber threats, such as advanced persistent threats and spear phishing. It provides a cloud-based approach to security as a service. Back in the day, when users were all on the network and applications resided in your physical data center, it made sense to establish a secure perimeter around the network. But those days are over, the perimeter is gone, and network security is all but irrelevant. Instead, put your defenses and controls where the connections occur — the internet — so that every connection is fast and secure, no matter how or where users connect or where applications reside. By moving applications and infrastructure to the cloud and untethering employees from their desks, you can realize tremendous advantages in productivity, agility, and cost containment. With our 100% cloud built secure platform, Zscaler can help you make a move to the cloud securely.
