About Zscaler

Born in the cloud to secure the cloud. Built from the ground up, Zscaler's multi-tenant cloud architecture lets customers enjoy elastic scale while maintaining security and data privacy. Zscaler was started in 2008 when a number of industry veterans, including CEO Jay Chaudhry, came together to create the next step in network security. Zscaler was built on several foundational observations, including the fact that business and personal applications had begun moving to the cloud, Web 2.0 was leading to the evolution of web-based apps, and that the adoption of mobility meant that users could be working from anywhere. These observations generated several tenants of a next generation security architecture, including: Perimeter-based security appliances can't provide real protection, because both users and the apps that they are seeking no longer reside within any perimeter. Point products, even those considered best-of-breed, are not designed to interact with one another for to a holistic perspective IT sees only pixels, not the picture. The majority of unresolved threats come from the internet, so the most effective place to handle security is in the cloud between the users and the web. Threats evolve constantly, and to catch zero-day exploits before they hit the network it is impossible to rely on signatures alone.
