Cisco Cloudlock is a good fit for my organization consisting of 150 end users. While we have a small office product that can expand to cover any size organization, I would assume the overhead to monitor would increase. While my organization's business is in real estate, I would highly recommend this for all businesses that handle sensitive and private data. Being able to monitor our cloud infrastructure has allowed our security team to be more flexible in allowing approved users access as well.

Zscaler
Zscaler Internet Access is an internet tunnel that pairs with the network adapter to secure traffic between servers and workstations. It can refresh policies automatically and log intrusions but does not broadcast intrusions. Cloud-based Zscaler Internet Access is easy to deploy and scale, with no hardware or software needed. In a hybrid model, Zscaler Internet Access performs some security functions on-premises and others in the cloud, allowing organizations to keep infrastructure. There is a slight learning curve from VPN and appliance architecture to this paradigm.

  • Zscaler completely moved away from the traditional firewall setup to a hosted firewall solution. We don't have to worry about the hardware failing or maintaining it as part of our service plan compared to our on-premise firewall. Zscaler has a lot of data centres across the world where they are maintaining their solutions so mobile consultants will always be close to one of their data centres.
  • Rolling out Zscaler solutions to our end customers' computers is actually pretty easy and hassle-free. As part of onboarding of new employees we can set up the Zscaler solution and push it to our end users' machines and get them connected to the cloud solutions.
  • Zscaler does proper market research on the latest emerging threats and they keep their firewall patched and updated to the latest versions so the security team does not have to worry about keeping the firewall updated.

Cons

  • Although alert mechanism is good but it delays a bit.
  • For implementation of DLP we had to hire a expert it took a lot of time to set up.
  • Support [in my experience] is not good.

Zscaler
  • Chat or email support is not available. Only option is to either call them or raise a ticket by logging into their website.
  • Pricing is not transparent and quote based.
  • Access to websites is a little too slow with Zscaler monitoring on.

Zscaler is a mandatory solution required by almost every large organization with a workforce working remotely or using cloud-based apps. Its deployment is relatively easy and it keeps on working in the background without actively bothering the user. Apart from a few weird messages which a user is unable to comprehend, Zscaler is able to provide fast and safe access to the internet and other external applications.

Support Rating
Cisco
They are very quick to respond and go the extra mile to help address our issues. That said, we've only needed them at the early stages of implementation for support help and occasionally when we want to do a full re-scan of our site. They are very flexible in working with us on the timing of such scans.

I cannot give a fair rating for this as I have not had to contact Zscaler support. There was one time we had to contact them because we needed to check if they were having issues on their end. Our ISP was actually the problem but support seemed very friendly.

Amazon Macie is limited to an AWS environment and fulfills some of the same functions that CloudLock does in SaaS products. Both are very valuable tools, so the decision is not really which to use, but whether to use both for their respective environments. In general I feel CloudLock is a more powerful tool because it connects to Microsoft 365, which is more business critical for our organization, but that really is a personal call.

Zscaler Intenet Access proved to be superior and the difference for us was the speed of policy delivery since your policy is applied in a web console and is effective in a matter of seconds. Another point to congratulate the solution is its compatibility with different platforms (macOS, Linux, Windows, Android, and iOS).
