Zscaler Extends Cloud DLP Service with Inline Exact Data Match for Massive Data Sets Covering Users Globally

Grazed from Zscaler

Zscaler, Inc. today announced inline Exact Data Match (EDM) with native SSL inspection as part of its advanced Cloud Data Loss Prevention (DLP) service. The inline EDM capability extends the Zscaler cloud platform to protect against the loss of sensitive information across all users and branches with more precision while reducing the number of false positives to near zero. This service is provided in the Zscaler cloud, providing the capacity of one billion data points per customer across 100 data centers globally.

Traditional DLP appliances that sit in the data center are expensive and resource-intensive, and their protection can be subpar, often failing to alert an organization until after data has been compromised. Zscaler's inline EDM with native SSL inspection blocks sensitive information before it leaves the network. In the first half of 2018, the Zscaler cloud platform blocked an average of 800,000 SSL-encrypted transactions per day containing advanced threats. Zscaler EDM with native SSL inspection and policy enforcement secures all application and user traffic, providing enhanced security and a business advantage.

"IT organizations need better visibility into potential risks of data leakage with granular control and actionable outcomes," said Steve House, Vice President of Product Management, Zscaler. "With the addition of EDM, our customers, in real time, can more precisely identify and protect sensitive information that could potentially leave their network - keeping the good things in, and the bad things out."
