Cloud-based Secure Web Gateway (powered by Zscaler)

In today’s world, corporate networks no longer have fixed security perimeters. Users are becoming more nomadic, carrying out their work from a variety of devices (made possible by flexible “Bring Your Own Device” policies) rather than being confined to static locations using single corporate-issued PCs. Enterprise data is becoming increasingly dispersed and uncontained as Software as a Service uptake grows inexorably.

“The Cloud” is driving a new approach to Internet security.

Global enterprise needs on-demand security that provides consistent follow-the-user security policies regardless of whether the user is in the office or mobile, removing the need to backhaul traffic to centralized appliance-based gateways.
