Visibility and compliance with granular policy controls

Simplicity and cost savings


Inline threat protection

Zscaler bi-directionally inspects every byte of your Internet traffic, blocking malware and cyberattacks with multiple layers of security, including MD5 signature blocking, antivirus, intrusion detection, content inspection, machine learning, threat assessment, SSL decryption, cloud mining, risk profiling, sandboxing, advanced persistent threat (APT) protection, and much more.

Sandboxing/Behavioral Analysis

Zscaler protects against zero-day malware and Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) by identifying suspicious objects and executing them in virtual sandboxes. Any malicious behaviors are recorded and analyzed, and malicious objects are automatically blocked across all 15+ million Zscaler users in real time.

Management and Visibility

Unified policy and Reporting

Zscaler delivers one, unified console to create web policy across security, Internet access management, and data loss prevention. Administrators manage their own policy, with changes instantly reflected across the entire cloud. The administrative portal also provides a single pane of glass to view and analyze all traffic across all devices and locations in real time.

SIEM Integration

Zscaler Nanolog Streaming Service (NSS) seamlessly transmits web logs from the Zscaler cloud to your enterprise SIEM in real time. Administrators can choose to send all the logs or specific fields based on interest or the EPS capacity. NSS enables companies to meet compliance mandates on local log archival, correlate web logs to other logs in the SIEM, and even receive real-time alerts on security incidents from the SIEM.

Policy and Compliance

URL filtering

Limit your organization’s exposure to liability by managing access to web content for users, groups, and locations. URLs are filtered by global reputation—against more than 90 categories, 30 super categories, and six classes.

Cloud application visibility & control

Discover, monitor, protect, and control cloud application usage across your organization. Create granular policies to ensure the safe use of business-critical cloud applications, and restrict the use of non-business applications across users, groups, and locations.
