Zscaler Cloud Connector (ZCC) is a cloud native zero trust access service that provides fast and secure app-to-app, app-to-Internet connectivity across multi- and hybrid cloud environments. With an integrated, automated connectivity and security stack, it eliminates the complexity and cost of managing multiple network services in cloud environments. It serves as a faster, smarter and more secure alternative to legacy network-centric solutions such as Cloud VPN, virtual firewalls and cloud routers.
Secure Multi- and Hybrid Cloud Connectivity
ZCC eliminates the need for provisioning and managing cumbersome VPN/MPLS connections between clouds and on-premise environments. It establishes inside-out DTLS connections across multi- and hybrid clouds, brokered through Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange. The inside-out connectivity approach provides zero trust access between applications without the need for network access.
Secure Cloud Egress Controls
ZCC takes a whitelisting approach and enables granular layer 7 egress controls for cloud applications communicating with internet services. Centralized policy management enforces consistent and standardized security policies across all clouds and on-premise environments.
Complete Visibility and Reporting
ZCC provides granular audit-compliant logging of all forwarded application traffic and its associated access information. It supports Nano Log Streaming Service to automatically stream all logs to customer’s SIEM in real-time.
Granular Access Controls
ZCC provides identity-centric application policies to control access between applications, cloud services, and workloads. Access control policies use location and DNS attributes and remain agnostic to network information. ZCC policies support flexible steering of forwarded traffic to other clouds and internet.
Friction Free Deployment
ZCC allows zero-touch deployment and automated policy configuration through deep integration with native cloud services and automation tools. It can be auto-deployed across multiple clouds within minutes. ZCC leverages the proven scale, performance, and reliability of the Zero Trust Exchange to ensure safe, controlled access from any cloud, with no exposed attack surface.
