Overall Satisfaction with Zscaler Private Access

After Covid and increase in Work from home scenario, our systems are fortified with ZScaler security. If I am right, it is used across Genpact as a preferred way to keep our data safe.
What it does is that it creates that additional layer of security over your ISP. Either the users use a Mobile hotspot or they are directly connected via broadband. In either case, the security is lesser compared to the secure line in the office. In order to compensate for that, ZScaler secures the systems of the employees.
In simple terms, it is like connecting to a secure VPN and connecting to internet via that. A couple of things what ZScaler does is:
1) Secure the data
2) Prohibits access to unsecure websites
3) Regulates the Operating system
4) Adds that additional layer of security while connecting to internet.
5) For the most part, blocks spam and phishing attempts. I say most because there are new ways invented every second to hack someone's data, identity and money.
