Overall Satisfaction with Zscaler Private Access

Deployed the ZPA for the whole organization to replace the legacy remote VPN solutions for internal organizations app. Zscaler private access, as the name, suggest help using the private applications within the organization. With ZPA we have addressed the latency issues which were associated with legacy remote VPN solutions. ZPA also helped in better access control for authorized users, not everyone had full access (as with the remote VPN solution), instead only required access to applications for the required work profile.
  • Access control for overall organization, follows the ZTNA model.
  • Better speed for remote users compared with legacy remote solutions.
  • Better visibility on ZScaler portal, thus better control from central space.
  • Due to its function, ZPA does not allow to see private IPs, which makes IT admin life bit harder.
  • Performance always has a room to be improved.
  • Would be great if more documentation is available to understand the model.
  • Internal Network Access for employees.
  • Better control on access for different employees, or contractor roles.
  • Performance and Analytics provided by Zscaler dashboard.
  • Overall positive Impact.
Well ZPA is a good solution, however everyone has their own advantage and disadvantages, with ZPA you can deploy ZTNA model, which will help you better control on access, however Palo Alto, Fortinet they are also market leading firewall solution, and you can not deny if they are not providing the same features.

ZPA is a good solution if someone is looking to deploy the Zero Trust Network Architecture (ZTNA), as it is currently industry's best practice. If you have data centre in Cloud Exchange this may be a really good solution.
However, if you want to secure your application by yourself, the physical firewall is really a good solution as well, you will have better control and full access to the network, such as you can see the private IPs (which is not possible with ZPA).
