Secure Web Gateway explained

  • Applications have moved from centralised data centres to cloud-based applications. Similarly, networks have transformed from traditional hub & spoke models towards direct-to-cloud.

    Now security is undergoing a similar transformation, from network-centric security to cloud security platforms. When everything is moving to cloud, why should security be on-premise?

  • Zscaler replaces the entire stack of security hardware covering access control, threat prevention and data protection.

    For outbound traffic this includes firewalls, URL filtering, SSL inspection, data loss prevention and antivirus. For inbound traffic this can include load balancing, DNS control, firewalls and VPN concentrators.

  • Based in San Jose, California, Zscaler is one of the fastest-growing and most innovative vendors in the Cloud-security market. Zscaler currently operates the world’s largest cloud security platform, protecting thousands of enterprises and government agencies from cyberattacks and data loss.

    In 2020 they were recognised as the only Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateways.

    Zscaler services are fully cloud-delivered and offer the simplicity, enhanced security, and improved user experience that traditional appliances are unable to match.

  • We see a fundamental shift from point security solutions to best-of-breed platforms offering better security and IT simplicity, which can only be delivered as part of a cloud-native proxy architecture. Increasingly our customers are turning to next-generation, cloud-based security solutions, capable of delivering secure access closer to the user at the network edge.

    Through our direct peering locations we can send network traffic towards the globally distributed Zscaler cloud, providing customers with a secure gateway for Internet, private and public cloud whilst maintaining excellent latency and application performance.
