If you're looking to ramp up your Cyber Security operations, Zscaler is a must-see. Their demos are great and the implementation is fairly painless. DAS helps you to get it set up and ensure success.

Zscaler Web Security

  • 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.

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
