What is it about?
Digital Transformation involves both business applications, with the increasing use of platforms and infrastructures in the cloud, and users, who find themselves working in highly mobile environments or from their homes; this forces IT to go beyond the traditional concept of business perimeter.
IT security can no longer be limited to protecting the network of every single location, but must protect the user and his tools, wherever they are: “nothing bad must enter, nothing good must leave”. But how can you make something safe when you have no control of it?
CryptoNet Labs offers its partner Zscaler’s solution, divided into two main features:
- Internet Access – a real “Security Stack as a Service”, to build a protective barrier around the Internet, which is able to apply corporate security policies in real time: URL filtering, firewalling, bandwidth control, anti-malware & sandboxing, DLP and more (optimising and protecting access to Office365 or GSuite).
- Private Access – Zscaler can transform the Internet itself into its own VPN. It allows you to create a secure connection for accessing applications in your data centres without having to expose them publicly, or expose VPN devices. The basic idea is to use the cloud as a broker, allowing you to define who accesses what and abstracting from the underlying network layer.
Who can benefit from it
Companies and organisations that want to implement a comprehensive defence of users and systems, and protect their users (workstations and mobile devices) when they access the Internet.
