Zscaler Web Security

It is well suited to companies that don't have a large network department and security office. Large enterprises may have too many layers of personnel to make the transition as seamless as it could be.

Pros

  • Web-based attack protection
  • Site monitoring
  • Notification and alerting from the vendor
Brian Hoadley profile photo
  • Zscaler allows us to grow our network without a great deal of additional hardware infrastructure.
  • It secures cloud-based applications without the data center having to perform complex configurations.
  • We are slowly moving away from VPN as our primary security mechanism and this permits this.

Cons

  • Initial professional services engagement for setup/implementation
  • Vendor change management without notification
Brian Hoadley profile photo
  • Securing third party access is a bit complex to implement. These are our third party partners who require access to our data center on a temporary basis.
  • It is a bit of a learning curve to transform from the VPN and appliance architecture to this model.

Alternatives Considered

I have previously used Websense and Bluecoat, both with mixed results. Zscaler is the superior product if for no other reason that is far easier to deploy and manage

Return on Investment

  • Filled a critical business need to protect home grown websites.
  • Integrated well with SIEM.

  • Difficult to assess. Zscaler is not cheap but neither are the alternatives. Judging by the reports I receive, the potentially harmful traffic / malware blocked saves from downtime and thus helps pay for itself
