You can have it on Windows, Linux or Mac, that's quite useful.I like how I don't need to see the solution or start it up. I just use my computer and have it working in the background. I start my laptop and it's there and working. That's the most important feature.

The ZPA is a unique feature which offers VPN along with all the additional security needed.We don't need to connect anymore. It is automatically connected when you log on in Windows.

Cons
The configuration from the client-side would be useful. Right now, it's not centralized. There should be a lock so that it can only be configured from one place.The setup is a bit difficult to handle on the server-side.Behavior analytics and other newer technologies should be integrated into the solution.There are situations where the connection drops, and you may not even be aware of it until you try to do something critical.I have been working with the same interface for the last ten years. I would say that it needs some improvements made.It would be useful to have an automatic install process where if you connect and you don't have the latest version, it should be automatically done.Every two weeks there was a new version to install which was annoying for the users.The hotspots give me connectivity issues occasionally. It could be easier to use if it allowed me to choose the hotspot.

It's an expensive solution.SCMP support would be one of the biggest improvements in my opinion. More speed improvements are also required.

Overview

As mobile workers roam to different locations, an always-on intelligent VPN helps AnyConnect client devices to automatically select the optimal network access point and adapt its tunneling protocol to the most efficient method. This may include voice over IP (VoIP) traffic, TCP-based application access, or Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) protocol for latency-sensitive traffic.

Zscaler Private Access delivers policy-based, secure access to private applications and assets without the cost, hassle, or security risks of a VPN. Using the Zscaler App, users can now get all of the benefits of Zscaler’s Cloud Security Platform for Internet traffic, as well as granular, policy-based access to internal resources from a single point.
