Zscaler Private Access - A Game changer in the Software defined network age

  • January 25, 2021
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
First Zscaler is very reliable, even with a poor internet connectivity Zscaler won't drop its connection. Every user who has used some other vpns or client connectors will confirm that Zscaler is robust and reliable in terms of performance among its competitors. The ease with which internal IT teams can control the access of a user's machine within a private network is segment leading. Zscaler is a multipurpose connector, it can be used to filter websites and also it can acts as a gateway of a virtual private network. In the current scenario, where most organizations are moving towards a working remotely approach, Zscaler is the solution, because employees are connecting from a open internet connection from their home, so its imperative to monitor and restrict the internet in a hos't machine. The second thing is its ease of usage, Zsacler single sign ins are very user friendly, supports multiple authentication. It supports cloud applications pretty well. Organisations can customize Zscaler, We have enabled password based logouts in our machines, which doesn't allows a user to turn it off.
What do you dislike?
Zscaler causes severe drop in host's internet speed. The difference in internet speed with Zscaler on and off is pretty high. Zscaler in a lay man's term is a very raw and a powerful agent/connector. Sometimes it forcefully blocks websites or contents which it should have allowed. It misjudges the policies sometimes. The Zscaler application sometimes consumes a considerable amount of system memory.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We give users access to the applications and database of our company through Zscaler private access. Users with Zscaler installed and logged in with sso can only browse internet and connect to our organizations internal network. We restrict/filter incoming request/pings in our virtual network through Zscaler. Zscaler helped us replace dial up vpn software, which were pretty unreliable.

zScaler Private Access(ZPA) brings remote user security and Security as a Service Solution together.

  • January 18, 2021

What do you like best?
There is simple setup for the user, just need install the client and then it is always ON on your PC. It is based on ZTNA (Zero Trust Network Access), if users needs to access organizations internal infrastructure they need to passout from Zscaler cloud where traffic detection and inspection occur. With ZPA you can replace traditional remote VPN solutions where there was the issue of latency, as user traffic always have to backhaul through Data Center.
With zScaler there is Cloud node which is nearby to remote user will be the gateway for remote user traffic.
What do you dislike?
This solution is pretty amazing, however would really love to see more Zscaler with their personal SDWAN solution so that it can truly be SASE solution.
Network Administrators also face difficulty with ZPA to troubleshoot the internal application issues, as tools such as ping/traceroute doesn't really fit with ZPA, as ZPA uses the one way traffic, so from another way pings/traceroute does not get the ICMP response back.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Zero Trust Network Security, remote users security for organizational private applications. Also with ZPA pretty observed the low latency and high availability due to its very great present in cloud.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Zscaler is very good proxy solution, would recommend to use it with SSO.
