We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The flexibility of the solution is its most valuable feature."
"The initial setup was straightforward. The biggest thing for us was to build our own policies. The deployment itself was only a few hours."
"The best thing about Zscaler Internet Access is the website filtering. In the UAE it's quite an important feature because most of the malware comes through the SQL injection and through downloads from websites. Zscaler helps protect against that."
"The solution offers a distributed organization to master and to control all of the endpoints."
"The most valuable feature is bandwidth control."
"Zscaler Web Security protects our users in remote locations from internet threats - even if they are not connected to our network."
"The scanning feature is impressive, because they do not introduce a big latency to the traffic."
"The security is excellent."
"The VPN is valuable, as the whole technology is very different from a traditional VPN."
"The interaction we've had with the support team hasn't been ideal. Technical support should be improved."
"In every cloud service in the world, you have multiple upstream internet providers to create diversity so that if one of your providers fails, your network just continues. In South Africa, there is only one upstream provider, and that's not right. That that's a problem."
"In terms of usage, here in the GCC, it's still growing a growing market, so the combination of DLP, data leak prevention, to a certain extent is fine. But what it requires is user-based access or role-based access. The solution needs to grow into that, which definitely takes time. There's not an easy way to integrate it, when you have a cloud-based solution."
"Zscaler should provide adjacent services, which would be complementary to their current offering that could to be more pragmatic for a customer. For example, if you take Akamai, you get multiple sets of services, all depending on the customer and the strategy and the complexity and the problems. In some areas, they are more varied in terms of coverage."
"It also needs better integration with other applications as well. There are some restrictions."
"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."
"I would like to see the ability to choose a pool of IPs for my company, set up rules based on them, and know that those IPs are not used by other companies."
"I don't know whether it's Zscaler or not, however, sometimes I can't access my time management. I need to wait and try again a few hours later. Typically, if I let some time pass, I can access it again."
"There are a few features that are not compatible with the Azure cloud."
"Roughly, we might spend $70,000 a month on the solution. We don't pay for anything beyond the standard licensing fee."
"Our monthly fee is around R3000."
