Achieve Zero Trust Access Visibility with Zscaler and Vectra

We’re excited to announce a new integration with Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange! This deep integration with Detect will provide end-to-end access visibility and protection from remote workers to business-critical applications.

Vectra & Zscaler for a compliant Zero Trust Architecture

With over 70% of employees around the world working remote and companies anticipating it staying that way, this new distributed workforce is forever working outside the boundaries and control of the corporate office. The remote accessibility of corporate networks renders both traditional network security solutions and endpoint solutions incapable of controlling data storage and providing visibility into its retrieval.

Now, the integration between Zscaler and Vectra helps monitor and protect the remote workforce by using principles of zero trust. This hybrid network security model spans both cloud workloads and on-prem applications, allowing you to track and stop attackers earlier in the kill chain—all while keeping access to your applications available and easy for the entire extended workforce.

By joining forces, Zscaler and Vectra offer organizations reliable, secure, and monitored access to business-critical applications through modern security-as-a-service platforms.

Zero Trust Access Visibility: Coverage from A to Z

With this integration, security operation centers (SOCs) can achieve Zero Trust Access Visibility. The Zscaler ZPA allows secure access to business-critical internal applications whether they are on-prem or in the cloud.  

Meanwhile, with our AI-driven machine learning technology, Vectra continually monitors all interactions and identities used in the connection and identifies malicious intent from account compromise as well as malicious insiders. This gives organizations full visibility across their network to the cloud—allowing them to take action to stop attacks before they lead to threats like ransomware or data loss.

The benefits of this integration for a Zero Trust Architecture

Reduced risk

The Zscaler inline and integrated security stack combined with Vectra identity and network visibility significantly reduces attacker dwell time and the business disruption. caused by security breaches, malicious insiders, and downtime.

Increased SOC efficiency

Comprehensive visibility from workforce to network to applications provides a complete view of the threat landscape. Automatic prioritization of alerts augments your SOC, and one-click drill down and pivot between consoles, as well as cross-platform workflow, expedites investigation and response by up to 34x.

Access visibility

Thorough analysis of how the workforce is accessing applications and from where, giving insights that can help scale infrastructure as needed.

Secure zero trust architecture

Ensure that only your workforce is accessing business-critical private applications and workloads by securing access and monitoring how accounts are being used once access has been granted.
