Zscaler brings on new cloud partners

10 Feb 16

Zscaler is expanding its partner ecosystem to include leading cloud application security brokers (CASB). As such, CipherCloud, CloudLock and Skyhigh Networks are now partners of Zscaler.

According to Zscaler, the changing IT landscape, brought on by the shift of applications from the data centre to the cloud and the increased access through mobile devices, introduces new threats that go undetected by appliances deployed in the data centre.

As a result, enterprises have to rethink their traditional appliance-centric castle-and-moat security architectures while continuing to provide their users with access to cloud applications and services.

To combat this, Zscaler’s cloud security platform provides inline threat protection to guard against cyber attacks, prevent data leakage and allow safe enablement of cloud applications by employees, the company says.

“Zscaler’s platform enables companies to secure, simplify and transform their IT infrastructure into a cloud-enabled enterprise,” says Punit Minocha, Zscaler vice president of business development.

“It does so by bringing together an ecosystem of complementary solutions with Zscaler’s cloud security platform. Our partnership with the leading CASB vendors makes available a pre-integrated solution that provides comprehensive visibility, control and protection for cloud services,” he says.

Dev Ghoshal, CipherCloud senior vice president of global alliances, “The rise of shadow IT, the unending litany of breaches and tighter data privacy regulations compel organisations to extend data controls into the cloud applications in use by employees.

“As a pioneer in CASB, and the only player with FIPS 140-2 validation, CipherCloud is pleased to make our award-winning technologies readily available to Zscaler’s customers and resellers.”

Gil Zimmermann, CloudLock CEO and co-founder, says Zscaler and CloudLock share a common vision of a cloud-native, SaaS-centric cybersecurity world that creates a safe and productive environment for any user.

“Our partnership with Zscaler is a key initiative to bring full-scale cloud security to our mutual customers and is just the beginning of the innovative projects we have planned together,” he says.
