SteelConnect and the Zscaler Cloud Security Platform
Becoming a cloud-first organization is imperative for successful digital transformation, but doing so introduces new challenges for managing and protecting enterprise networks. IT leaders can’t keep pace with business demands using legacy, router-based networks. Meanwhile, Internet backhaul introduces too much latency for users leveraging cloud applications, thereby compromising performance and end-user experience.
What organizations need is a simple yet powerful way to design, deploy, and manage networks, while ensuring fast, secure access to critical cloud apps and data. The combination of Riverbed SteelConnect with the Zscaler Cloud Security Platform delivers those capabilities through an entirely cloud-controlled solution that eliminates management complexity and the compromises that often exist between security and business goals for performance and agility.
