How Zscaler is driving multi-sector cloud compliance, security and digital transformation at scale

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, organizations have been forced to employ a distributed working style powered by technologies like hybrid cloud networks and edge computing.

Zscaler Inc.’s solutions, including Zscaler Private Access, allow companies to transform and perform at scale, from a security and compliance standpoint, without missing a beat, according to Lisa Lorenzin (pictured), senior director for transformation strategy at Zscaler.

“Zscaler is a strategic security ISP partner with AWS. We provide AWS customers with zero-trust, secure remote access to AWS — this can improve their security posture, as well as their user experience with AWS,” she said.

Lorenzin spoke with Lisa Martin, host of theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s livestreaming studio, during AWS re:Invent. They discussed Zscaler, its FedRAMP High IL5 authorization, and how its solutions drive digital transformation for businesses. (* Disclosure below.)

Success stories across the board

Zscaler’s IL5 authorization means the company is certified to provide its security and compliance services to critical governmental agencies and institutions, in addition to its usual private sector and corporate engagements. Its ZPA service is zero-trust and built on AWS GovCloud.

One shining example of the company’s product value to customers is Jefferson Health. The healthcare service provider orchestrated its cloud migration using Zscaler.

“As Jefferson Health moved to the cloud-first model, they were able to leverage Zscaler’s workload posture to measure and control that risk. Again, it’s an environment where the combination of AWS and Zscaler together gives them a flexible, resilient solution that they can be confident is correctly configured and thoroughly locked down,” Lorenzin explained.

With the increasing intricacy of ransomware tactics such as double extortion, organizations must be wiser and more proactive with their security infrastructure. It’s important to be able to break that kill chain as early as possible to ensure that the user or the server traffic itself isn’t exposed to the initial infection vector, according to Lorenzin.
