Zscaler has announced newly advanced AI/ML innovations powered by the largest security cloud in the world for unparalleled user protection and digital experience monitoring. The new capabilities further enhance Zscaler’s Zero Trust Exchange security platform to enable organizations to implement a Security Service Edge (SSE) that protects against the most advanced cyberattacks, while delivering an exceptional digital experience to users, and simplifying adoption of a zero trust architecture.
Organizations are facing a 314 percent increase in cyberattacks on encrypted internet traffic and an 80 percent increase in ransomware with nearly a 120 percent increase in double extortion attacks. Phishing is also on the rise with industries like financial services, government and retail seeing annual increases in attacks of over 100 percent in 2021. To combat advancing threats, organizations need to adapt their defenses to real-time changes in risk. However, lean-running IT and security teams are experiencing security alert fatigue with increasing exposure to real-time threats and often don’t have the resources or skills to effectively investigate and respond to the mounting volume of threats. Zscaler is addressing these challenges by providing one-click root cause analysis to instantly identify the issues behind poor digital experience, freeing up IT and security teams from troubleshooting to focus on preventing attacks. AI-powered security helps IT professionals by automating threat detection to deliver better and faster protection.
Zscaler operates the largest in-line security cloud, which inspects over 240 billion data transactions daily and blocks 150 million daily attacks across the globe to dramatically expedite investigation, response and resolution times, and pinpoint potential malware to stop breaches and data loss. Zscaler is uniquely equipped to train its AI/ML models for superior accuracy in automating threat responses and making policy recommendations to security teams. From faster threat detection to freeing up resources, Zscaler’s Zero Trust platform enables IT and security teams to reduce the constant fire drill of manually chasing alerts and trying to identify new threats.
“Cybercriminals are using AI, automation, and advanced techniques to train machines to hack or socially engineer victims faster than ever before,” said Amit Sinha, President, Zscaler. “To help our customers combat these escalating techniques, we’ve dramatically advanced AI and machine learning in our cloud to take advantage of our massive data pool, giving our customers granular real-time risk visibility and a solution to combat attackers that no other security vendor can provide.”
