Zscaler ZS recently announced that it has extended its relationship with Amazon’s AMZN Amazon Web Services (“AWS”) to help enterprises securely accelerate their transition to the cloud.

Zscaler unveiled a new Posture Control solution, Cloud-Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP), which has been built on AWS. ZS’ new CNAPP platform helps DevOps and security teams accelerate cloud adoption and reduces operational complexity and overhead by replacing multiple point security products with a single and unified platform.

The company revealed that it selected AWS because of its prevalence as a primary cloud provider for a large portion of Zscaler’s customer base. Apart from this, the breadth of services, scale and reliability makes AWS a better choice.

Additionally, Zscaler also extended its Zero Trust Exchange cloud security platform to AWS. The company facilitates enterprises’ inline inspection of internet traffic from cloud workloads using deep integration with AWS native technologies, including AWS Secrets Manager, AWS CloudFormation, Gateway Load Balancer and AWS Auto Scaling.

The increasing requirement for privileged access security due to digital transformation and cloud migration strategies is fueling the demand for cybersecurity solutions. The pandemic further prompted the incidence of cyber onslaughts as businesses of all sizes are transitioning their operations to various online platforms.
