Help AG partners with Zscaler to offer zero trust cloud-based security

Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Help AG, the cybersecurity arm of Etisalat Digital and the region’s trusted IT security advisor, has partnered with Zscaler™, the leader in cloud security.

Zscaler provides enterprises with cloud security services that replace the traditional inbound and outbound gateways, helping organizations transform their network and security infrastructures from an appliance-based model to a modern, cloud-based approach.

Commenting on the partnership, Stephan Berner, Chief Executive Officer at Help AG, said: “Zscaler will enable us to offer our customers a zero trust solution that securely connects any user, device, or app over any network with a revolutionary new approach to application access and security. This strategic partnership reaffirms Help AG’s commitment to providing industry leading cybersecurity solutions to our customers.”

“We are looking forward to the partnership with Help AG to accelerate their customers’ secure journey to the cloud. By combining network, application and security to meet the demands of today’s modern hybrid workplace, our Zero Trust Exchange Platform enables them a smooth transformation journey from on premise security to the cloud,” said Sean Sullivan, Director EMEA Channels at Zscaler.

Zscaler is purpose-built for the needs of today’s businesses, which rely heavily on cloud-based applications and mobile networks. Backed by the world’s largest security cloud, the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange™ platform present locally in the UAE is built on a native, multitenant, cloud architecture that can grow dynamically with demand, to deliver unprecedented scalability and performance. Featuring a proxy-based architecture for full inspection of encrypted traffic at scale, it brings security and policies close to the user to eliminate unnecessary backhaul. Considering Zscaler is delivered as a service from the cloud, there is no hardware to buy or manage, and it is always up to date.

Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange

Zscaler’s cybersecurity platform is based on the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange, a zero trust architecture built for accelerating secure digital transformation. The Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange is a modern approach that enables fast and secure connections which allow users to work from anywhere using the internet as the corporate network. Based on the zero trust principle of least-privileged access, it provides comprehensive security using context-based identity and policy enforcement.

By ensuring that the service is always close to the users and co-located with the cloud providers and applications they are accessing, such as Microsoft 365 and AWS, it guarantees the shortest path between users and their destinations, providing comprehensive security and an unmatched user experience.
