Zscaler, Inc., the global leader in cloud security, unveiled today new breakthrough AI/ML innovations driven by the world's largest security cloud for unsurpassed user protection and digital experience monitoring. The new capabilities expand Zscaler's Zero Trust Exchange security platform, allowing companies to implement a Security Service Edge (SSE) that safeguards against the most advanced cyberattacks while providing an outstanding digital experience to users and easing zero trust architecture adoption.
Cyberattacks on encrypted internet traffic have increased 314%, ransomware has increased 80%, and double extortion attacks have increased roughly 120%. Phishing is also on the rise, with businesses such as finance, government, and retail experiencing yearly increases in assaults of more than 100% in 2021. Organizations must adjust their defenses to real-time risk changes in order to battle growing threats. However, lean IT and security teams are facing security alert fatigue as they become more exposed to real-time attacks, and they frequently lack the resources and capabilities to adequately analyze and respond to the rising amount of threats.
Zscaler is tackling these difficulties by offering one-click root cause analysis to rapidly identify the issues causing bad digital experiences, freeing up IT and security teams from debugging and allowing them to focus on preventing attacks. AI-powered security assists IT workers by automating threat detection in order to provide better and quicker protection.
“Cybercriminals are using AI, automation, and advanced techniques to train machines to hack or socially engineer victims faster than ever before. 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.”

“Delivering seamless digital experiences, from employee devices to the applications they need, goes hand in hand with securing our sensitive business applications and data, no matter where it resides. Zscaler’s integrated cloud platform helped us effortlessly adopt a zero trust architecture, reduce risk, accelerate our digital transformation, and achieve business goals.” said Darren Beattie, Modern Workplace and Security Operations Manager at Auckland New Zealand-headquartered Tower Limited.
“With Zscaler’s AI-powered Zero Trust platform based on a SSE framework, we are able to augment and expand the reach of our IT and security team to stop the growing frequency of advanced cyberattacks. The threat landscape is constantly evolving, and these new AI capabilities will effectively enable us to see real-time changes in risk, automate our response process, and stay ahead of the attackers,” said Stephen Bailey, Vice President of Information Technology at Cache Creek Casino Resort.
