Zscaler lance une solution de sécurité Zero Trust pour les charges de travail dans le cloud

Zscaler présente une solution de sécurité pour les charges de travail cloud. « Communications sur la charge de travail’ dirige la communication mutuelle entre les applications cloud et les charges de travail de manière sécurisée.

Workload Communications est une extension logique de l'offre existante de Zscaler. La fonction de deux solutions populaires dans cette offre, Accès Internet et accès privé, faire la lumière sur l'introduction. Internet Access and Private Access drive connections between cloud apps, private clouds, and endpoints through a secure tunnel. Workload Communications does the same for the interconnections between workloads in the cloud.

Pourquoi?

Workloads require internet access to communicate and be managed remotely via third-party API services. No one can get around that. The problem starts with a rollout in one or more public cloud environments. The safe walls of a private infrastructure are crumbling. The view of the data that workloads exchange is blurring.

In theory, the company network can be expanded to reach the new environment. Zscaler suggests an alternative. Workload Communications directs the connections of the workloads to the Zscaler cloud security platform. There it is determined whether the connection is allowed. Workloads are invisible to the internet. The malicious see nothing – and cannot approach anything. The distinguishing factor is the fact that a network does not have to be expanded to a cloud environment to provide security.

Workload Communications can be used to protect workloads in private, public and hybrid cloud environments. According to Zscaler, the approach does not affect speed and performance.
