Zscaler is a market leading cloud web filtering option for medium to large sized organisations looking for strong web security with policies to protect users from online threats and monitor how employees are using the web. There are granular admin controls on offer to filter specific website pages and make sure that web filtering is suited to different teams within the organization. This platform is fully cloud based and so deployment is easy, with protection for all users, even when off the work network.
The platform has strong performance, with low latency. There are a range of reports and audits as well as real time visibility over how people use the web. However, there are also some useful end-user controls such as a ‘continue anyway’ feature, which allows people to visit sites they know to be safe, even when Zscaler suggests they don’t. This can be a good way to allow employees to be protected, without adversely impacting their ability to do their job. Businesses looking for strong threat protection with admin controls should consider the Zscaler platform.
