Zscaler, Inc. , the leader in cloud security, has signed a global alliance partnership agreement with NTT Communications Corporation to deliver cloud-based internet and web security that scales to all users, regardless of location, enabling enterprises to securely embrace the cloud.
The expansion of enterprise cloud services and a diversifying network access environment are increasing the demand for advanced security measures, policy control, and solutions for enabling cost reduction based on the cloud environment. According to IDC, the compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of the public cloud service market in Japan will be at 20.4% from 2018 to 2023 and the market size in 2023 will increase 2.5-fold from 2018 to 1.694 trillion yen.
“As a DX Enabler™ of digital transformation, we wish to provide services that help customers transform existing businesses and create new ones. To achieve this aim, we need a cloud platform that is not only flexible and reliable but, also enables utilizing data safely and securely,” said Mr. Fumitaka Takeuchi, a security evangelist at NTT Communications. “By uniting our global communication infrastructure with the world’s highest level of robustness and managed security services with Zscaler’s flexible cloud security services, we provide data management solutions for a new era and support increased resilience in a zero-trust environment.”
“NTT Communications’ reliable communication infrastructure combined with Zscaler’s extensive cloud security platform will enable enterprises to securely transform into cloud-enabled enterprises,” said Al Caravelli, Vice President of Worldwide Global Alliances and Channels at Zscaler. “Zscaler’s purpose-built cloud security platform delivers a fast user experience and enhances security, while eliminating the need to buy, deploy and manage legacy security appliances.”
In early May, Zscaler brought its worldwide Zscaler Academy program to Tokyo to provide customers and partners with an opportunity to meet other network and security experts and gain insights and skills to help them drive IT transformation in their own organizations.
