Zscaler helps protect multi-cloud workloads

Cloud security specialist Zscaler's new Workload Communications capability extends zero trust security to workloads and applications hosted in public clouds.

Part of the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange, this zero trust for cloud workloads capability secures cloud-to-internet, cloud-to-cloud, cloud-to-data centre, and intra-cloud communications, the company said.

Traffic is routed to the Zscaler platform and forwarded to workloads according to business policies based on identity and context, avoiding the corporate network.

This, according to Zscaler, eliminates the attack surface by making workloads invisible to the internet, simplifies application connectivity by removing networking bottlenecks, and delivers superior application performance by reducing app-to-app latency.

"To properly secure cloud workloads, three critical areas – security, connectivity, and performance – need to be addressed, which legacy approaches have not been able to solve," said Zscaler president and CTO Amit Sinha.

"Zscaler has solved all three challenges with a new architecture that extends our Zero Trust Exchange, already trusted by thousands of enterprises to secure millions of users, to cloud workloads for stronger security, simpler connectivity, and better performance. Zscaler's new architecture eliminates the need for organisations to extend their corporate network to the cloud, which results in a bigger attack surface, operational complexity and performance bottlenecks."

Siemens IT service group manager and global outbound connectivity lead at Siemens Rui Cabeço said "As we move more applications to the public cloud, we must ensure a high level of compliance with internal and external requirements, avoid security risks from inconsistently applied controls, and reduce legacy infrastructure costs.

"With Zscaler's Workload Communications, we can easily standardise security policies for both users and applications regardless of where they are located. We gain visibility into the public cloud, achieve compliance, and lower costs by not backhauling traffic, and simultaneously reduce data centre resource consumption."

AWS director of category management Mona Chadha said "While we share the responsibility of cloud security with our enterprise customers, we are customer obsessed in helping our customers accelerate secure workload migration to AWS to achieve scalability and agility.

"Zscaler provides customers with a Zero Trust security model that simplifies cloud networking and security while eliminating the need for virtual firewalls and mesh or site-to-site networks. Having Zscaler solutions available in AWS Marketplace allows customers to easily subscribe, accelerate time to market while meeting compliance and security requirements."

Workload Communications is available immediately.
