Legacy web security has many blind spots

Here are five possible concerns to consider with Zscaler web security


Minimal CASB visibility for apps

The reality is organizations use over 1,295 apps and web services requiring cloud access security broker (CASB) policy controls for content and context. The default is to allow or deny for apps and web services with limited risk ratings, a legacy SWG approach without app visibility.


Limited data protection

Limited DLP included for web security including exact data match, however, a large library of policy templates, thousands of data identifiers supporting over a thousand file types, plus proximity analysis, similarity matching, and other vital DLP capabilities are not provided.


Policy control complexity

Policy complexity is a known issue for secure web gateway (SWG) solutions designed years ago, even for the SWG MQ leaders over the years.  Having more focus on networking and protocols, the cloud shift to users, apps, data, and activity is challenging.


Changing SWG critical capabilities

A single console and unified policy for the critical capabilities of SWG, CASB, and DLP is hard to provide when missing two of the three parts.


Application risk profiles

Given 85% of web traffic today is app and cloud service-related, providing tens of thousands of app risk profiles for security, privacy, legal, audit, financial, and compliance regulations is not optional, it sets the bar for risk management.  Web security without app visibility, user, data, action and risk ratings fall short today.
