Connects private cloud apps to Zscaler Enforcement Nodes (ZENs) for secure access via Zscaler App
Zscaler (NASDAQ: ZS) enables the world’s leading organizations to securely transform their networks and applications for a mobile and cloud-first world. Its flagship services, Zscaler Internet Access™ and Zscaler Private Access™, create fast, secure connections between users and applications, regardless of device, location, or network. Zscaler services are 100 percent cloud-delivered and offer the simplicity, enhanced security, and improved user experience that traditional appliances are unable to match.
One half of Zscaler's Cloud platform, Zscaler Private Access (ZPA) provides secure, software-defined access to internal applications running on public cloud and within hybrid environments without the need for VPN. ZPA decouples application access from network access, and delivers comprehensive visibility into user activity, enabling enterprises to embrace a zero trust strategy. ZPA automatically selects the fastest connection route for users, resulting in better performance when accessing Azure production environments.
The Zscaler Connector is a lightweight VM that deploys within your Azure cloud instance or datacenter. The application connector front-ends your internal applications and sends an inside out TLS-based connection to the Zscaler Cloud where the authorized user to internal app connection is stitched together based on customizable zero trust policies. The connector acts as a load balancer and can also help discover previously unknown applications.
