CloudLock and Zscaler Announce Global Partnership to Deliver Unified Cloud-Native Cybersecurity
CloudLock, the cloud-native CASB and Cloud Cybersecurity Platform, and Zscaler, the Internet security company, today announced a new partnership enabling customers to fully integrate the company's' cloud-native solutions to significantly strengthen their security posture across cloud environments and efficiently identify, as well as eliminate risk-inducing cloud shadow applications regardless of how and where users access them.

"I'm excited to see Zscaler and CloudLock as two leaders in cloud security bringing application risk assessment to a broader audience, increasing both employee awareness and self-support," said Nathan McBride, Senior Vice President and CIO, Innovation Architects at AMAG Pharmaceuticals.

The combined solution delivers unprecedented cyberthreat defense and security control across on-premises and cloud environments, with an integrated cloud security platform.

Zscaler's cloud security platform provides full inline threat protection to guard against cyber attacks, prevent data leakage and enable the safe usage of cloud applications. CloudLock delivers crowdsourced-based application risk scores (CloudLock Community Trust ratings) for more than 101,000 applications, six times as many as any other CASB vendor. With more than 800 subscription-based customers, CloudLock has a larger installed base than any other CASB vendor. The combination of both solutions delivers a unified view into risk attributes for all cloud applications being used within an organization, both on and off-network.

Unlike static, vendor-based application ratings, the integrated solution provides deep and dynamic security policy management and response actions that adjust risk profiles and remediation steps in real-time based on crowdsourced intelligence. These application risk ratings are continually recalibrated based on 1 billion data points ingested daily into CloudLock's patented cybersecurity platform and application behavior from more than 25 million users under management across both organizations.

"CloudLock is one of the leaders in the CASB space and we are excited to partner with them," said Jay Chaudhry, CEO of Zscaler. "Their CASB solution augments our cloud firewall, sandbox and secure web gateway to provide our joint customers with a comprehensive solution to embrace the cloud."

"Zscaler and CloudLock share a common vision of a cloud-native, SaaS-centric cybersecurity world that creates a safe and productive environment for any user," said Gil Zimmermann, CEO and co-founder at CloudLock. "Our partnership with Zscaler is a key initiative to bring full-scale cloud security to our mutual customers and is just the beginning of the innovative projects we have planned together."
