Zscaler Wins US Defense Innovation Unit Contract
June 1, 2020
With a successful DIU prototype, the Zscaler solution has the potential
to scale to other DoD organizations through a production Other
Transaction (OT) agreement.
Zscaler is a zero trust leader with proven benefits and leadership
A great user experience: Zscaler is a true secure access services edge (SASE), and the cloud is distributed across more than 150 data centers around the world. This ensures that people can access the internet and applications with minimal latency from any device, BYOD or government furnished equipment, or location because their cloud connection is local.
Market-leading compliance in federal government: ZPA is the first zero trust remote access cloud service to achieve FedRAMP high authorization, and the Zscaler platform is in-process for Impact Level 4 and 5 authorization. ZIA is authorized as FedRAMP moderate and DOD Impact Level 2. Both ZIA and ZPA meet Trusted Internet Connection (TIC) 3.0 guidelines.
“Zscaler has been a zero trust leader since our inception, and we are proud to work with DIU to help protect the Department of Defense from adversaries threatening national security,” said Drew Schnabel, Vice President of Federal at Zscaler. “Zscaler will minimize the attack surface by directly connecting people to the internet and their applications. Our innovative approach also delivers a great experience for personnel no matter their location, device, or network, through our globally distributed cloud.”
