Another thing that I would like to see is if Zscaler could have a separate product for direct access. I looked at a private access solution, but I understand there's a separate product that isn't integrated with this.It needs better integration with other applications. It takes a fair amount of regular activity to apply the by-passes because it is very strict in its restrictions and frequently you have to go in and open things up to allow the workforce to work.The pricing is an issue. It is expensive if you have all of your users in the same location. It is expensive compared to other firewalls on the market.​When you have appliances, SSL inspection is always a headache due to poor performance and/or lack of ciphers implemented. ​Do not expect to pay for the service and start using it, like Gmail. Zscaler requires a proper implementation to be done to make it successful.
