The product is an easy solution to replace on-prem firewalls and VPNs and provide security for any device from anywhere - whether a user is at home or on a corporate network.

This solution is in the cloud firewall where you just divert your router into the IP address and it goes to the Zscaler Cloud. Our current customer is a major financial institution and the solution is being used as general insurance for the company. Everyone is using the second generation VPN of Zscaler. There are 11 people in our company using the solution and our current customer has around 15,000 users, all using the product on a daily basis. We are customers and resellers of ZScaler and I'm a director of our company.

My primary goal is to find the simple and easy cloud solutions that I am reselling. Zscaler is one of them because it provides something that is broader than only firewalling on cloud. There is a lot of work around it and it's all outsourced once it's in the cloud and protects from attacks. The great thing about it is that people get the most updated software and hardware security guarantee. We deal with medium-sized enterprise companies. We're in Europe and I am the only unique Zscaler reseller for companies with less than 2000 users. They normally don't deal with companies smaller than that.

We are establishing IT systems from the customers' routers to the nodes in Zscaler. Once we hand over the traffic to them, we wait for them to claim the full IP packet and we send the traffic back to them along with the destination. From our perspective, Zscaler is a security solution that is implemented in the cloud so it's a cloud supported service solution. We are not specifically working on a specific firewall.

The ASA5516-X is a good firewall. I really like the dashboard IP connections report, it shows which IPs are trying to hack and their geo location. It lets me blacklist them with a right-click.

This answer depends on the provider one has. These days people in enterprise are moving away from big names to Fortinet, WatchGuard. I would recommend them to stick to secure architecture than just names. Check the frequency at which their threat database is updated. Ask them about their threat Intelligence provider. Is it in-house vs third-party? Check if they have an integrated suite rather than just a one-off product. See how long have they been in the market and where are they positioned in Gartner Report. Now coming to the original question, do I want to change my Vendor for my security services. My answer is no.
