The challenge with today’s network security in a cloud-first world

Your perimeter is broken

Your users are mobile and connect straight to their cloud apps. They are no longer behind your security stack and exposed. Your data center is empty, so what is your perimeter still protecting?

Your network is costing too much

Your hub-and-spoke network is costly and adds latency. Your users demand a faster connection to their cloud apps. Why continue to backhaul traffic and pay for an architecture that wasn’t designed for the cloud?

The breaches continue

Zero-days, botnets, and threats hiding in SSL bypass your internet security. You can’t inspect all your traffic because your security stack has performance limitations. With increasing inspection demands, how can your appliances keep up?

The Zscaler Cloud Security Platform elastically scales to your traffic demands. With no hardware or software to deploy, you can set up direct internet connections in minutes. Zscaler processes up to 50 billion transactions at peak periods and performs 120,000 unique security updates each day

With 100 data centers globally, every user gets a fast, local connection no matter where they connect from.




Although cloud-based SWG services continue to grow rapidly, the overall SWG market is still dominated by the sale of on-premises appliances. We estimate that the combined revenue of the SWG Magic Quadrant participants in 2016 was $1.6 billion, which represents a 7% growth rate over an adjusted 2015 market size of $1.5 billion (see Note 1). We estimate that cloud service revenue represented approximately 29% of the total in 2016. Cloud services have experienced a 32% five-year compound annual growth rate, while on-premises appliances have only grown by 5% during the same period. Growth rates in the SWG market have been on a steady decline from the peak growth of 23% reached in 2010. We anticipate the growth rate for traditional appliances/software will be around 5% in 2017, while cloud service revenue will continue to grow at a robust 15% to 20% rate. The overall (appliances and cloud services) market growth rate will be around 8% year over year.
Growth in on-premises solutions will be driven mostly by existing customers upgrading physical appliances to accommodate growing Web traffic volume. Cloud growth will primarily come from the replacement of on-premises solutions. Both cloud and on-premises will also benefit from additional spending for more advanced security features (i.e., network sandboxing and other advanced threat defense technologies).


  • Zscaler applies all its malware detection engines to all content, including SSL/TLS traffic, regardless of site reputation or customer entitlements. With 35 billion transactions per day, this approach yields improved threat intelligence and site reputation verdicts. The optional sandbox reporting feature (Advanced Behavioral Analysis) provides alerting, malware analysis reporting and policy-based quarantining.
  • Zscaler has peered with Microsoft’s fiber network at more than 20 sites, reducing latency to Microsoft services such as Office 365 (O365), without sacrificing inspection. More than 50% of Zscaler traffic to Microsoft travels over peered links. Zscaler adapted its TCP stack to do fast window scaling to enable SharePoint files to be downloaded much faster. It also added one-click Office 365 configuration to help customers more easily implement O365 (for example, it maps O365 IP ranges and URLs to appropriate O365 apps).
  • Zscaler Private Access is an optional service that enables customers to replace its VPNs, while providing user-based access to specific applications inside customers’ data centers or hosted in Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services or Google Cloud.
  • Zscaler continues to lead the market in innovative cloud features. The Nanolog Streaming Service provides the real-time export of logs to popular SIEM solutions. Zscaler’s firewall service (outbound only) was the first among SWG vendors. Zscaler was the first cloud provider to post availability statistics and provide throughput reporting.
