Close the security appliance gap with cloud-delivered advanced threat protection
Hackers have shifted their attacks to your network’s weakest link: the user. They exploit the shortcomings of appliances by infecting your users when they visit trusted sites on the internet. Hackers often attempt to hide attacks behind SSL-encrypted or CDN-delivered traffic.
To immediately close this gap, you can add Zscaler as a layer of security and compliance between your existing infrastructure and the Internet. It’s simple – make Zscaler your next hop to the Internet. There’s no hardware, software or headaches.
Hackers are using some of the world’s most trafficked websites to spread malware and, as a result, they’re totally undermining the concept of trusted sites.
In this diagram, a user visits a trusted website that has been compromised. Existing security controls won’t detect the malware, because it’s housed in a trusted domain, it uses allowed ports, and there are no signature matches.
Every hardware appliance is limited in terms of capacity and functionality by the amount of processing power you can squeeze into a box. The deeper the level of inspection, the more boxes you need-and more boxes result in a slower user experience. This forces compromises in terms of what gets inspected and the depth of inspection.
Most enterprises sacrifice SSL inspection since it can require up to 8x the number of security appliances and they often let traffic from content delivery networks (CDNs) go uninspected since they’re a pay-to- play service.
If you know these threats are real, but think they probably don’t apply to you, find out for sure. A simple two-minute test using the Zscaler Security Preview will give you picture of how secure you really are.Check Your Security Now
Zscaler, in developing its cloud-based architecture, broke down all the functional components of a standalone proxy and re- imagined them—creating a distributed service that forms a single virtual proxy extending across more than 100 data centers. The Zscaler proxy-based architecture delivers superior protection over other types of security controls, because the entire file is downloaded, assembled, uncompressed, and scanned for malicious content before it reaches the end user or calls out to a command and control (C&C) server. All inspection is done at wire- rate performance with only microsecond latency.
With Zscaler, there is no hardware or software to deploy or manage. By making Zscaler your next hop to the Iteet afte it taeses ou uet seuit ifastutue, ou’ll iediatel ejo ieased seuit ad compliance.
