Together, the Partners Provide a Comprehensive Cloud-based Security Platform and Know-how to help Companies Protect their Employees and Corporate Assets
Kansas City, MO and San Jose, CA – April 27, 2017 – Zscaler, Inc., creator of the leading cloud security platform, announced today a strategic relationship with Fishtech Group, a cloud-first cybersecurity company and technology accelerator. Zscaler and Fishtech share a vision to protect the cloud enabled enterprise, a vision forged through the combination of a world class cloud security platform with industry leading solution design and integration.
The rapid adoption of enterprise cloud applications, the increased mobility of employees, and the proliferation of devices in the workplace have rendered on premise security appliances ineffective. The antiquated and expensive hub-and-spoke architecture still used by many organizations results in poor performance and inadequate security as corporate traffic is backhauled through data centers.
With over twenty years experience in security design and deployment, Fishtech Group is focused on helping companies formulate and execute a cloud strategy that ensures the protection of their infrastructure and employees. An integral part of this strategy is the Zscaler™ cloud security platform. By helping enterprises deploy Zscaler security services, Fishtech ensures that its enterprise customers benefit in four important ways:
- Enhanced security through inspection of all Internet traffic for advanced threats, including SSL encrypted traffic
- Policy enforcement wherein all corporate policies are easily administered and enforced uniformly across the enterprise, including for branch offices and the distributed workforce
- Performance, particularly for those accessing the Internet from outside a corporate hub, as employees can directly connect to the Internet from branch offices
- Cost savings from not having to spend on expensive bandwidth costs for backhauling traffic from remote offices
Fishtech also brings expertise in both planning and integrating the Zscaler cloud security platform with other systems being used in the enterprise.
“Fishtech is my premiere partner for cloud security,” said Eric Foster, CISO of Netsmart Technologies, a leading provider of software and IT solutions for the healthcare sector. “It makes sense that a company built from the ground up for the cloud is partnering with a platform born in the cloud to secure cloud-enabled enterprises. We’re excited to see what the relationship brings.”
“Today’s business practices require enterprises to take a new approach to Internet and application access to ensure security – one that is focused on securing the user, not the network gateway. We create cloud solutions for simplified operations, lower costs, and an improved security posture,” said Gary Fish, CEO and founder of Fishtech Group. “Built from the ground up for the cloud, the Zscaler platform is a fundamental part of our recommended security strategy for our customers.”
“As companies plan their network and security transformation to the cloud, they need to work with a trusted partner that brings expertise in cloud technologies, know-how regarding security systems, and experience replacing legacy IT systems,” said Jay Chaudhry, CEO and Founder of Zscaler. “Fishtech’s experience with security and its focus on cloud technologies make it the ideal Zscaler partner to help enterprises implement their cloud transformation.”
