Zscaler introduced new data protection solutions build upon a rich tradition of accurately securing data across all cloud apps for data in motion, data at rest, and BYOD assets.
The new developments shorten data protection programs from months to hours and require no configuration for data loss prevention (DLP). This reduces security risks by consolidating data protection across all channels and simplifies operations through workflow automation.
Moinul Khan, Vice President & General Manager of Data Protection at Zscaler commented, “Building on eight years of data protection innovations, Zscaler has employed advanced auto-classification capabilities to accelerate setup and reduce security team overhead and costs. Unlike other data protection solutions, this ensures that Zscaler Data Protection works for the IT administrator, rather than having the IT administrator work for it. In addition, the technology we acquired from the recently announced ShiftRight acquisition allows organizations to manage hundreds of potential risks and incidents in a simple yet very sophisticated way to reduce case resolution time significantly.”
Data is created and distributed across hundreds of apps and workloads in today’s highly mobile and cloud-centric environment, increasing enterprises’ risk of data loss. The findings of the latest 2022 Data Loss Report by the Zscaler ThreatLabz research team underscore enterprises’ failure to protect distributed data. According to ThreatLabz, 36% of cloud application data is available via the open internet. According to an analysis of roughly 6 billion data loss policy violations, enterprises face 10,000 possible data loss incidents per day, resulting in losses of more than $4.35 million.
Traditional DLP systems are incapable of securing remote data and necessitate a significant number of resources to configure, maintain, and administer, which can be costly and time-consuming to implement, putting enterprises at risk.
Security service edge (SSE), a newly proposed security category, underscores the market’s requirement for unified data protection as part of a wider, purpose-built security platform.
It offers accelerated deployment cycles with zero configuration DLP. Using the size of the world’s largest security cloud, which processes 170 million files per day, the new zero configuration DLP capabilities auto-classify all organizational data, hence expediting data protection program deployment.
Reduced security threats by standardizing data protection across all channels. Endpoint and email data security capabilities are being added to the existing web, SaaS, IaaS, PaaS, and private app support. Integrating policies across channels, eliminates the need for point products, lowering security risks and administration complexity.
