Zscaler and BT Deliver Real-Time Advanced Threat Detection

BT’s solution powered by Zscaler provides real-time detection and alerts for advanced threat monitoring and regulatory compliance

SAN JOSE, Calif., February,19th, 2014 – Zscaler, the global security cloud for the mobile enterprise and BT, one of the world's leading providers of communications services and solutions, today announced a joint solution to enable real-time advanced threat monitoring of the Zscaler Global Security Cloud via the BT Assure Threat Monitoring service.

The proliferation of cloud and mobile devices can introduce security risks that are not fully realized by organizations or their employees. This new enhancement to the BT Assure portfolio will help customers align business processes with security, delivering continuous coverage and threat intelligence while enabling the productivity benefits of BYOD and cloud initiatives.

The new solution seamlessly integrates Zscaler Web logs in real-time with BT Assure Threat Monitoring to provide advanced threat monitoring, security data analysis and regulatory compliance.

Mark Hughes, CEO, BT Security, said: "Global organizations are challenged to determine the root cause of data breaches by a lack of tools, time and skilled security analysts available to them to interpret the data. Additionally, the complexity of new technologies, including cloud applications, creates new vulnerabilities. This joint solution from BT and Zscaler provides a unified front against security risks, enabling organizations to focus on their core business."

Zscaler combines granular visibility, analytics and control with advanced threat protection from modern malware, including zero-day attacks and botnets, for any user on any device in any location, including complex cloud and mobile environments.

BT Assure Threat Monitoring provides advanced threat monitoring, security intelligence and analytics of Web logs. So the integrated service delivers unparalleled detection, alerting, reporting, log retention and analytics of advanced security threats and suspicious activity that may have otherwise gone unnoticed, enabling organizations to obtain a comprehensive view of enterprise environments and emerging threats in real time.

"As technology is increasingly commoditized, silos emerge that prevent organizations from realizing the full potential of individual point solutions," said Jay Chaudhry, CEO, Zscaler. "Collaboration between organizations such as BT and Zscaler enables enterprises to cross this chasm, aligning business processes with security to drive the next wave of innovation."
