We are honored to share that Zscaler has been selected as a 2020 Cybersecurity Impact Awards honoree.
The Cybersecurity Impact Awards recognize Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia-based companies, including Federal headquarters location in this region, for cybersecurity leadership and innovation. Winners exemplify innovation in their solutions to reduce risk in the modern age.
At Zscaler, we value our relationships with Federal agency customers and policymakers on the Hill, which is why Zscaler’s Federal headquarters is located in close proximity, in Tysons, VA.
Our mission is to help Federal agencies securely transform their networks and applications for a mobile and cloud world. As organizations shift to cloud-based IT environments and support more telework, they also need to modernize their access and security infrastructure. Agencies face additional challenges as their network perimeter expands, including increased attack surfaces, poor user experience, and unreliable visibility and control.
We have recognized the need for organizations to shift the security focus from securing the network to securing the users—on any device (BYOD), in any location, and on any network. Zscaler’s innovative Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) platform meets the security requirements of Federal agencies while eliminating the need for expensive legacy appliance-based remote access solutions. Through our FedRAMP-authorized internet and secure web gateway solution and zero trust remote access service, agencies are able to create fast, secure connections between users and applications, regardless of location—which has been critical, especially during these times of increased telework.
Over this past year, we have worked closely with Federal agencies to successfully pilot Trusted Internet Connections (TIC 3.0) and zero trust network programs, which have resulted in improved performance and availability, improved mobile access, and reduced costs.
Zscaler’s continued work to support FedRAMP, improve TIC, and encourage zero trust adoption directly supports Federal digital transformation and the opportunity to use the cloud to modernize Federal missions.
