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

  • 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

  • The pre-baked reports within Zscaler could do with a refresh, add some new reports in-tune with new threats. IE: show me any examples of crypto mining detected in the org
  • Zscaler could make it easier to clean out expired accounts or those of ex-employees to get a more accurate reading of activity
  • Failover monitoring for GRE tunnels could be improved although it does work

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

  • 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
