Pros
the security level is very high. After we tested it and checked all the security aspects of the product, we found that it's highly secure.If you want a very flexible system that you can easily integrate, and develop interfaces for it or plug-ins to other application environments, it's probably the most flexibleSafe-T is very good for users because it has plug-in for Outlook.It's easy to use over the web. A user who is not in the office can use it and securely insert files.

The most valuable feature is bandwidth control.The solution offers a distributed organization to master and to control all of the endpoints.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 initial setup was straightforward. The biggest thing for us was to build our own policies. The deployment itself was only a few hours.The scanning feature is impressive, because they do not introduce a big latency to the traffic.Zscaler Web Security protects our users in remote locations from internet threats - even if they are not connected to our network.All internet access flows through the Zscaler proxy, regardless of whether people are in office or remote. I have greater control site access and I minimize the number of compromises that we experience to almost none.Whether you are in a hotel somewhere, or in Africa, it does not matter. You will get the Zscaler protection presence anywhere.

Cons
One important thing that we haven't found in this product is the ability to provide a read-only view for documents. Also, the ability for the customer to add annotations to these documents.The Outlook agent is not working well for installing it in the entire office.

It also needs better integration with other applications as well. There are some restrictions.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.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.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.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.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.
