Zscaler expands capabilities with new partnerships

28 Jun 18

Zscaler has broadened its partner ecosystem to include new SD-WAN and security partners, arming mutual customers with integrated solutions to drive secure cloud transformation.

It has also released new and enhanced Application Program Interfaces (API) integrations from current and new partners.

Zscaler has expanded its SD-WAN partner ecosystem with the addition of Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, CloudGenix, LANCOM Systems, and 128 Technology.

In addition to the aforementioned companies, Zscaler has SD-WAN partnerships with Aryaka, Cisco SD-WAN (Viptela), Citrix, FatPipe Networks, InfoVista, Nuage Networks from Nokia, Talari Networks, and VeloCloud, now part of VMware (NSX SD-WAN).

Several security partners have launched API integrations with Zscaler to provide advanced security automation.

Phantom, now a part of Splunk and a leader in Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR), and Anomali, a leading Threat Intelligence Platform (TIP), are new to the Zscaler security partner program.

In addition to the expansion of the SD-WAN ecosystem, Zscaler partners are enhancing their solutions by providing more flexibility for customers and addressing their unique networking and security needs.

Other SD-WAN partners are implementing API integration with Zscaler to enable zero-touch branch provisioning. 

Riverbed has developed one-click integration between Riverbed SteelConnect and the Zscaler Cloud Security Platform which automates the creation of secure IPsec tunnels that steer all internet-destined traffic to Zscaler for inspection and protection of enterprise data. 

“API integration allows us to offer our customers a fast and easy way to secure their internet breakouts by automatically directing all internet traffic to the nearest Zscaler node, which minimises latency and maximises security,” says Riverbed cloud infrastructure business unit senior vice president and general manager Paul O’Farrell.

“A single click enables the integration of Zscaler into the app-defined policy and orchestration engine of SteelConnect and allows an enterprise to set up a secure network across hundreds or thousands of sites quickly, and deliver greater agility and performance to the business.”  

Zscaler business and corporate development VP Punit Minocha says, “We are excited about welcoming these leaders into Zscaler’s expanded partner ecosystem and our continued innovation with existing partners.

“This growth is a testament to the recognition from customers and partners that Zscaler is an essential vendor in enterprise networking, and our collaboration with industry-leading solutions enables us to provide proven and certified solutions that meet specific customer needs.”
