The Missing Piece in the Australian Government's Cloud-First Strategy

Zscaler's Cloud Security Platform - Zero Trust Exchange is now IRAP assessed at PROTECTED

Zscaler and IRAP

Cloud-first is an important strategy for the Australian government, providing agencies with easier access to services, increased speed of adoption, and the ability to focus on improvement rather than maintenance of systems.

Zscaler's completion of the IRAP assessment at PROTECTED provides agencies with the missing piece in moving to the government's cloud-first strategy. Why? In a mobile and work-from-home environment, users typically need to VPN through hardware SIGs, resulting in poor performance for cloud services such as Office 365.

Zscaler's IRAP assessed cloud-based security services allow agencies to access applications from any location, simply and securely, significantly improving user and citizen experience and enhancing mobile and B2C security.
