Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Being an application-based firewall, this is one of the critical focus factors along with the threat prevention services it provides.
It is stable and pretty much scalable.
The cloud-based services are a nice feature.
My primary use case for this solution is for a secure gateway.
The reporting feature helps our performance.
Their technical support is outstanding and top-notch.
It catches modified signatures of known viruses.
Installing this product as a datacenter firewall for segregation and segmentation, and also configuring policies between zones has improved my organization.
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.
As a firewall and 360 degrees of security, there needs to be more maturity.
The initial setup was complex.
I think it would be nice for Palo Alto to work without the connection to the cloud. It is 100% powerful when connected to the cloud. But, if you disconnect from the cloud, you only get 40-50% power.
I would give this product a rating of 9 out of 10 due to some slight issues of performance.
They should make their user interface a little more user-friendly.
The VPN and decryption need improvement.
They provide a medium level of technical support.
The data analytical system for deployment needs to improve.
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 is a reasonable price compared to other solutions on the market.
The pricing is OK, it is not too expensive.
More expensive than other firewalls.
It is expensive, a feature more accessible to enterprise class customers, but provides an enhanced possibility that Zero- or near-Zero-day threats may be identified and mitigated. The cost of the product weighed against the potential impact of even one successful crypto malware-type exploit may justify the expense.
The pricing and licensing option should be categorized for various countries such as for Bangladesh.
It's not particularly cheap, but it is absolutely worth it.
It IS a bit expensive, but I think you get what you pay for. Value is there.
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).
