Virgin Media Business, has added Zscaler service portfolio, driven by the global Zero Trust Exchange Platform.
Zscaler’s cloud-native platform is a cloud security service that sits between an organisations’ users and corporate applications and networks. The Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange offers a secure connection between users, applications and devices over any network, in any location.
This partnership will enhance Virgin Media’s SD-WAN, hybrid cloud and cloud security solution suite by offering globally leading service that encompasses the SASE framework. The cloud-native technology includes services such as Secure Web Gateway, Cloud Firewall, Cloud Sandbox, CASB, Cloud DLP and secure remote access functionality without the challenges that on-premises equipment often present.
With Zscaler Private Access, traffic is directed to the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange using Zero Trust Network Access to limit application access to authorised personnel only.
This means that regardless of a user’s location, organisations can securely access any cloud, private or public service on the back of cloud-based security policies and with corporate acceptable user policies in place, to greatly improve flexibility, scalability and security when compared to traditional VPN network access.
Andrew Halliwell, Product Director at Virgin Media Business, said: “By introducing Zscaler’s highly integrated Zero Trust Exchange to our portfolio, we’re accelerating our customers’ journey to the cloud and locking it down with best of breed security. This new cloud service adds to our existing network security services portfolio and will help protect and simplify our customers’ operations while providing real cost savings that set them up to rebound, no matter how their corporate network needs to flex in future.”
Sean Sullivan, Director EMEA channels at Zscaler, added: “We are looking forward to the partnership with Virgin Media Business to accelerate their customers’ secure journey to the cloud. By bringing network, application and security requirements all together in one SASE framework, our Zero Trust Exchange Platform enables them a smooth transformation journey from on-premise security to the cloud. With more and more apps being consumed in the cloud and increasing workforce mobility, the market is coming to Zscaler and Virgin Media Business is well positioned to answer the customer demand for user-friendly and next-generation security.”
Virgin Media Business and Zscaler will work together to configure Zscaler Internet Access and Zscaler Private Access with enhanced management support set to follow later in the year.
