It is being used across the entire organization to secure users working on-premise as well as remotely. It has replaced the traditional hub and spoke appliance hardware and complex VPN implementations. It is designed to allow us to secure our assets in a mixed on-premise /cloud environment. More and more security is required as many of our applications become cloud-based.
  • 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.
  • 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.
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.

Zscaler Web Security Review: "Zscaler - minimise the risk of crypto mining exploits"

Zscaler Web Security is being used globally throughout the entire organisation and 50+ countries. Zscaler makes life easier and more productive for our employees.
How? because via SSO an employee can easily access the internet from any device and do so with very little restrictions.
Why? because Zscaler clearly demonstrates how their ability to scan websites in real-time detects malware and vulnerabilities that would otherwise gone unnoticed.
  • Zscaler is truly a cloud service, leveraging the capacity and throughput expected from the cloud along with the resilience
  • Zscaler takes away some of the risks imposed with older machines or poor patching by automatically restricting content to vulnerable agents
  • Zscaler works in the background and does not interfere with normal user operations. It does so consistently, wherever the individual works in the world
  • 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
The absolute benefit of Zscaler is that it was born in the cloud and thus has no hybrid hangovers such as working with legacy proxy servers. Thus it is a clean system to configure and deploy.
It is a cloud service therefore you need to consider latency and internet traffic flows between your location and their pop. Zscaler have a large footprint to minimize that impact but it is worth examining with your ISP because the most obvious traffic route is not always the result you get.
The net result is that your optimum connection is within a different country which helps performance but geo-location / google searches could confuse people
