We changed our name from IT Central Station: Here's why

Zscaler Internet Access Primary Use Case

MA
Service Manager at a construction company with 10,001+ employees

It's primarily for end-user access to the public internet. We use the proxy functionality and the URL Filtering.

We have a global policy for all our users. While there are a few categories of URLs that we are not allowed to do SSL inspection on, the primary function for us is to do SSL inspection so that we can make use of the built-in anti-malware and antivirus—the advanced-threat features—within the platform. We do SSL inspection of some 80 percent of all the traffic and we can evaluate if it's malicious or not.

It is a cloud solution where pretty much everything is handled by Zscaler.

You can have mobile employees who forward traffic into a Zscaler client, or you could use a PAC file. So, if users connect at the beach, a hotel, coffee shop or something outside their actual office, it will give them protection.

You can use it with a secured Internet using a web gateway to deliver to the cloud.

The product is an endpoint solution for private and internet security. I use it myself in my home office. I'm in sales. I use it as an endpoint solution for my laptop, for my device, in order to get access to some internal service applications, such as pricing and time management tools.

Server Administration / Security Officer at a manufacturing company with 501-1,000 employees

Because some of our employees need to work remotely, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we were looking for a solution that would keep them safe. We have a Cisco ASA firewall in our company, but when people work remotely they can't be protected by that solution. That's why we decided to go for a WAF.

Sr. Manager at a non-profit with 51-200 employees

We have Windows 10 laptops. We wanted help securing our laptops for remote work, but we don't have the server for this infrastructure. Whereas, with this solution, the cloud server is managed by Zscaler. 

It is a pretty lean solution. We only need to manage the agent and some very small tools on the laptops.
