Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange

The one true zero trust platform to secure all users, workloads, and devices everywhere

Protect and empower your business with zero trust

Protect and empower your business with zero trust

The Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange™ is a cloud native platform that powers a complete security service edge (SSE) to connect users, workloads, and devices without putting them on the corporate network. It reduces the security risks and complexity associated with perimeter-based security solutions that extend the network, expand the attack surface, increase the risk of lateral threat movement, and fail to prevent data loss.

Transform IT and security with confidence

The Zero Trust Exchange helps IT securely accelerate business transformation using a foundation of zero trust.

Perimeter security fails in the world of cloud and hybrid work

As cyberattacks become more sophisticated and users work from everywhere, the hub-and-spoke networks and perimeter security we once relied on—VPNs and firewalls—are failing to secure our data or deliver a good user experience.

Four steps to breach enterprise security

Supporting a remote workforce means extending your network via VPN to employees’ homes, coffee shops, and more. If you’re using IaaS or PaaS, you need to extend it even farther to the providers’ home regions. Stretching your network like this enables cybercriminals to attack and compromise sensitive data in four steps:

Step 1: Find your attack surface

Every internet-facing firewall—whether in a data center, cloud, or branch—is an attack surface that can be discovered and exploited.

Step 2: Compromise you

Using stolen credentials to compromise users, workloads, and devices lets attackers bypass conventional detection and enter your network, either through the attack surface (e.g., VPN, firewall) or by enticing users with malicious content.

Step 3: Move laterally

Once inside, attackers move laterally throughout your network, locating high-value targets for ransomware and other attacks.

Step 4: Steal your data

After exploiting your high-value assets, they leverage trusted SaaS, IaaS, and PaaS solutions to set up backchannels and exfiltrate the data.

To realize the vision of a secure hybrid workplace, you need a modern, scalable, and cloud native zero trust architecture that eliminates the internet attack surface and securely connects users, devices, and workloads to applications.

Verify identity and context

Our platform verifies the identity and profile of the user, device (including IoT/OT), or workload through integrations with third-party identity and access management (IAM) providers. This process also establishes the context of the requesting entity to determine appropriate access levels and any applicable restrictions.

Verify identity and context

Control risk

Once identity, context, and policy are established, the platform conducts decryption and deep content inspection of all user, workload, and device traffic to identify and block any malware as well as prevent exfiltration of sensitive data.

Control risk

Enforce policy

Finally, the platform dynamically computes a risk score for the user, workload, or device that determines whether to allow or restrict it. If the entity is allowed, the platform establishes a secure connection to the internet, SaaS app, or IaaS/PaaS environment. This keeps internal applications invisible to the internet, eliminating any attack surface.

Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange

The architecture for accelerating secure digital transformation

The Zero Trust Exchange is a purpose-built cloud native platform founded on least-privileged access and the idea that no user, workload, or device is inherently trustworthy. Instead, the platform grants zero trust access based on identity and context, and then brokers a secure connection between a user, workload, or device and an application—over any network, from anywhere.

Zero Trust Exchange: A better approach for uncompromising security

Perimeter-based security
Zero Trust Exchange
Zero attack surface

Firewall/VPNs publish on the internet and can be exploited

Apps aren’t exposed to the internet—what threat actors can’t see, they can’t attack

Connect users to apps, not the network

App access requires network access, greatly increasing the risk of threats moving laterally

Direct connections between users and apps remove all risk associated with accessing your network

Proxy architecture vs. passthrough

Passthrough architecture has limited controls for preventing malware and data loss

Proxy architecture enables full content inspection, including SSL, with connections brokered based on identity and context

Multitenant architecture

Really just VMs of a single tenant in the cloud

Cloud native and multitenant, powered by the world’s largest security cloud
