  • Zscaler Internet Access - Core of the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange - Prioritized for Authorization to Secure the Government’s Most Sensitive, Unclassified Data in Cloud Environments by FedRAMP Connect

    San Jose, California, February 2, 2021

    SAN JOSE, Calif. – February 2, 2021 – Zscaler, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZS), the leader in cloud security, today announced that Zscaler Internet Access (ZIA) has been selected to be prioritized for Joint Authorization Board (JAB) FedRAMP certification at the High Impact Level through the FedRAMP Connect program. ZIA, combined with Zscaler Private Access (ZPA), are the core of the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange. ZPA is JAB authorized at the High Impact Level. 

    Solutions authorized at the High Impact Level protect the government’s most sensitive unclassified data in cloud environments, including data where loss of confidentiality, integrity, or availability may have a severe adverse effect on operations, organizational assets, or individuals.

    This milestone further supports Zscaler’s commitment to help federal agencies at the Moderate and High baseline levels adopt modern cloud-based security to protect from catastrophic breaches. Zscaler currently supports over 100 federal agencies, federal system integrators, and partners, and close to one million total users, helping to keep sensitive data secure and employees safe and productive, working from anywhere.

    Under FedRAMP Connect, the FedRAMP Program Management Office (PMO), Federal CIOs, and the Office of Management & Budget (OMB) review business cases, prioritize, and expedite JAB certification based on government-wide demand, applicability for cross-agency use, and the security of the solution.  

    In 2019, Zscaler Internet Access (ZIA™) became the first cloud-based secure web gateway solution to earn FedRAMP certification. Today’s announcement underscores the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange™ and Zscaler Advanced Cloud Sandbox as the industry model for the successful implementation of Trusted Internet Connection (TIC) 3.0. The Zero Trust Exchange is a cloud-native platform that securely connects users, apps, and devices. The Zscaler Advanced Cloud Sandbox is a breakthrough proxy-based architecture to find and block zero-day threats. 

    Zscaler’s innovation delivers a validated solution to civilian agencies to securely access cloud, internet, and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications from any device or location while meeting or exceeding government requirements. Additionally, the certification of Zscaler Internet Access at the High Impact Level will enable Zscaler to move more aggressively into the DoD and IC marketplace.

    “The events from this past year have forced the world to think differently about security in order to rapidly deploy digital services at a massive scale,” said Stephen Kovac, Zscaler’s Vice President of Global Government and Head of Corporate Compliance. “Zscaler Internet Access and Zscaler Private Access  meet the highest DHS CISA TIC 3.0 guidelines to help keep civilian agencies and employees safe, productive, and focused on their mission. ZIA achieving FedRAMP High is a significant step forward in making Zscaler’s Zero Trust Exchange available to DoD and the Intelligence communities.”

    This announcement builds on recent Zscaler momentum including:

    • ZPA™ achieved FedRAMP-High JAB Authorization
    • ZIA™ achieved FedRAMP “In Process” status at the High Impact level, sponsored by a U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Command
    • ZIA™ received Authorization to Operate (ATO) at the Moderate Impact level
    • Zscaler was recognized as the only Leader in the Gartner December 2020 Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateways. This is the 10th consecutive year Zscaler has been named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateways
    • The DoD’s Defense Innovation Unit (DIU) selected Zscaler to prototype ZPA and ZIA as secure access technologies. The project has the potential to scale to other DoD organizations through a production Other Transaction (OT) agreement

  • 2021 Research Highlights Growing Security Vulnerabilities Around Targeted Social Engineering, Ransomware and Malware Attacks

    San Jose, California, February 16, 2021

    Zscaler, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZS), the leader in cloud security, today announced a new study that examines hidden vulnerabilities found in enterprise virtual private networks (VPNs) and spotlights the need for a zero-trust security approach to mitigate threats. Published in collaboration with the Cybersecurity Insiders, the report includes findings from a global survey of more than 350 cybersecurity professionals on the current state of remote access environments, the rise in VPN vulnerabilities, and the role zero-trust security models play in providing access to enterprise applications. To download the full study, see the Zscaler 2021 VPN Risk Report.

    For the last three decades, VPNs have been deployed to provide remote users with access to resources on corporate networks. However, the increased demand for remote work solutions, a shift to the cloud, and advancements in digital transformation have uncovered increased incompatibility between VPNs and true zero-trust security architectures. These incompatibilities, largely due to VPNs inherent need for access to the network, and need to be exposed to the Internet, have increased the enterprise attack surface allowing threat actors to exploit these legacy models based on their inherent trust of users.

    The 2021 Zscaler VPN Risk Report highlights the current VPN usage by enterprises and uncovered the list of top challenges faced by IT administrators who manage VPNs. It recommends security alternatives that exist for network and security leaders wanting to provide fast, seamless and secure access to business apps without compromising their existing zero trust security strategies, and includes data that provides a glimpse into the role that zero trust will play in the future of remote access. The survey findings show:

    • 93 percent of companies surveyed have deployed VPN services, despite 94% of those surveyed admitting that they are aware that cybercriminals are exploiting VPNs to access network resources.
    • Respondents indicated that social engineering (75%), ransomware (74%), and malware (60%) are the most concerning attack vectors and are often used to exploit users accessing VPNs.
    • With nearly three out of four businesses concerned with VPN security, 67% of organizations are considering remote access alternatives to the traditional VPN.
    • As a result of growing VPN security risks, 72% of companies are prioritizing the adoption of a zero-trust security model, while 59% have accelerated their efforts due to the focus on remote work.
    • Looking at the future need for zero trust services, the report states that 77% of respondents indicated that their workforce will be hybrid, with greater flexibility for users to work remotely or in the office.

    “It’s encouraging to see that enterprises understand that zero-trust architectures present one of the most effective ways of providing secure access to business resources,” said Chris Hines, Director, Zero Trust Solutions, Zscaler. “As organizations continue on their journey to cloud and look to support a new hybrid workforce, they should rethink their security strategy and evaluate the rising cybersecurity threats that are actively exploiting legacy remote access solutions, like VPN. The more secure approach is to completely leave network access out of the equation by taking the users securely and directly to the applications by brokering all user to app connections using a cloud-delivered zero trust access service instead.”

    The full findings of the Zscaler VPN Risk Report are now available to the general public. Please see the 2021 VPN Risk Report for more information.
