Overall Satisfaction with Zscaler Web Security

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.
  • Positive ROI as we are able to depreciate our existing appliances as they come off the books without having to do all at once.
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.
