We researched Netskope but ultimately chose Zscaler.
Netskope is a cloud access security broker that helps identify and manage cloud applications, protecting your sensitive data from exfiltration. It provides visibility of how all SaaS applications are used in your environment. It makes setting up policies easy, and it has special policies to protect integrated apps.
It is difficult to scale up. The infrastructure tends to stall when trying to keep pace with high loads. Although it provides basic protection features like the interpretation of firewall logs, it shows the user access to apps. It shows issues comparing the reports with the firewall logs. Overall, it presents a simple approach to web traffic control.
Zscaler, on the other hand, is a complete security stack as a service for the cloud. It is designed to reduce the complexity of traditional secure web gateway approaches. It provides scaled protection to users and entities.
We use Zscaler and can say we like it very much. It provides secure internet with full encryption. It is easy to use, and you can easily monitor how your users and entities use SaaS applications. It also controls your bandwidth with a load balancer. So if you are looking for smooth internet access and secure connections across devices, it may be just the solution for you.
The integration with MS365 is not the easiest, and it slows email uploading and downloading. However, we heard of other users that integrated Zscaler with Azure and were satisfied.
We encountered a few issues, but the vendor solved them. There were some false positives and the setup could be easier. If you have a lot of users on mobile, it may not be the best option.
Zscaler is a superior solution for businesses of all sizes. Although the setup requires some expertise, it still provides a complete solution that offers good value for money.
