Zscaler Security Cloud
June 02, 2014
Starts at £0.59 per user per month.
Don't be confused, however. Zscaler does not completely replace your data centre. Rather, it provides that portion of your data centre that is most likely to be troublesome: access to the internet. Users are forced, regardless of from where they access, to get to the internet through the Zscaler cloud. The access appears to the users as if it was through the organisation's data centre, but instead it is passing through Zscaler.
The system uses a central portal to define policy and, once defined, the policy follows the user no matter which data centre is being accessed (that access, by the way, is automatic depending on where in the world the user happens to be).
Being an aggregated system - all users access through the Zscaler cloud - there is the usual opportunity to collect and disseminate threat information so that all users in the cloud are protected at the same level. Zscaler uses sandboxing for its analytics and the company can block as well as warn. This is quite effective at preventing malware attacks. Configuration and policy development/roll out is simple and fast and the reporting is superb.
We liked this service for its functionality and ease of use. A low £7 per user per year price tag helps as well. Prices are US-based, thus indicative only.
