Big lack of support for SCMP network systems and the bandwidth speeds are limited

What is our primary use case?

When I am outside of the company, I use Zscaler Private Access. I use Zscaler Private Access in the home, hotel, or wherever for remote working. It is a VPN.

Pros and Cons

  • "We don't need to connect anymore. It is automatically connected when you log on in Windows."
  • "SCMP support would be one of the biggest improvements in my opinion. More speed improvements are also required."

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from one to ten, I would rate Zscaler Private Access at only a three or four. The biggest disadvantage is the lack of SCMP network systems. Also, the quality of the bandwidth is limited. We use normal internet access, not a fiber-optic line. The difference is huge, like flying in first-class vs. economy class. We stay in the economy class. The commercial company is saving money, but the end-user has lost the experience.
