How does cloud security differ from “traditional” network security?
Cloud security offers many of the same services as legacy systems, such as antivirus engines, firewalls, sandboxing, data loss prevention and others. It’s all built in to a unified platform, so the services communicate with each other, giving you visibility into the entire network from a single interface.
According to Forrester:
“Cloud delivery of an integrated security platform provides big opportunities for CISOs to reduce latency and costs, while at the same time improving their security posture.”
Why cloud security offers better protection than appliances
Organizations understand that protecting users with a consistent and enforceable policy requires much more than simple URL or web filtering. Thousands of companies have already switched their IT security from appliances to experience the benefits of cloud security.
Enterprise-wide protection – Every user gets the same protection, whether they’re in the HQ, branch offices, on the road or at home.
Integrated security – Integrated cloud security services correlate information to give you a complete picture of your entire network.
User experience – Zscaler provides fast local breakouts, and our single-scan multi-action technology enables our security services to scan simultaneously for faster performance.
IT complexity – Cloud security consolidates point products into an integrated platform; there’s no hardware or software to buy or manage.
Intelligence – Cloud intelligence means that any time a threat is detected anywhere in the cloud, protection is deployed everywhere. Zscaler applies more than 100,000 security updates to its cloud every day.
Value – Zscaler moves security from CAPEX to OPEX — for about the price of a cup of coffee per user per month.
“It seems a single day doesn’t pass without some interesting new botnet emerging in the news…it’s reassuring to know that Zscaler for APTs leverages the depth of its behavioral analysis with the breadth of its Security as a Service platform to deliver a uniquely comprehensive solution.”
