Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
From a protection perspective, it provides a network perimeter security function for our company.
We use it as a firewall at our head office and branches.
It integrates well with Fortinet and Palo Alto.
It uses many applications, like antivirus blocking and web filtering.
The high availability of the application is good.
It protects the data behind our switches.
It helps us perform our daily jobs.
We mostly use the Layer 4 firewall functions: Access rules, NAT, and site-to-site IPsec VPN.
Whether you are in a hotel somewhere, or in Africa, it does not matter. You will get the Zscaler protection presence anywhere.
Tech support is good.
Zscaler excels in security protection and the cloud is always up-to-date. It does not matter if you are a small or big organisation, you will receive the same security quality.
One on the main benefits is protection all time from anywhere.
In terms of management and visibility, there is a single panel where you can configure the policies for your entire organisation worldwide.
After a proper implementation, the maintenance is very low.
This solution needs to update for "Next Generation" needs.
It did not improve our safety because the IDS does not detect some attacks, but our anti-virus software did.
We tried configuring the IDS for more than four months, but it did not work properly.
The CLI is verbose. You have to say a lot to do a little. I don't like that part of it. Cisco's command syntax seems to be a good bit more concise. When you're trying to get something done, you don't want to have to type a bunch.
Juniper needs to focus more on their perimeter firewalls.
The GUI needs to be easier to handle.
I would like to see endpoint control and endpoint testing security.
I would like them to add a dashboard because it's difficult to operate.
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.
Pricing and Cost Advice
It has a low price.
It is not that expensive.
Pricing is good. Most of the costs are in the UTM (IDS/IPS, virus scanning, etc) subscription.
Palo Alto was nice, but much more expensive.
We were able to lower our overall operating costs over a three year period by 25%, mostly recovered from maintenance/support costs.
Small enterprises or telco have variant licenses, and this licensing should be improved.
I would say about $20,000 for a SRX650 with IDP licence.
Pricing is very good, not expensive.
The pricing is an issue. It is expensive compared to other firewalls on the market.
Be aware that you will need to invest some time and money to adapt your environment for Zscaler (traffic redirection, software deployment, authentication, etc).
