Zscaler Teams With Microsoft Active Protections Program

By receiving early MAPP intelligence, Zscaler can provide customers with vulnerability information in advance of its regular monthly security update release

SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Zscaler, Inc., the market leader in cloud-delivered multi-tenant Security as a Service (SaaS), today announced a further development in its ability to anticipate emerging threats ahead of the market and provide customers with rapid protection. This through a new partnership with Microsoft that provides advanced security vulnerability information through the Microsoft Active Protections Program (MAPP). MAPP is the arm of the Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC) that releases monthly security bulletins. By receiving early MAPP intelligence, Zscaler can provide customers with vulnerability information in advance of its regular monthly security update release, thus serving customers more efficiently and effectively. Additionally, by receiving this information early, Zscaler can rapidly deploy protections to customers through its SaaS infrastructure in a manner transparent to end-users.

"Zscaler is pleased to partner with Microsoft and through this MAPP program enable customers to be protected ahead of public disclosure of vulnerabilities," said Michael Sutton, vice president, Security Research, Zscaler. "This development ensures that Zscaler customers using Microsoft products will be less vulnerable to attack despite not yet having deployed patches internally."

Mark Miller, director of Microsoft's Trustworthy Computing product management, said: "Our partners share our passion for industry collaboration to protect a world full of Internet users. No one company can accomplish this by itself.That is why we are partnering with Zscaler to advance and improve security." He continued: "There's more to the MSRC than security updates - we're working to protect customers from emerging threats. MAPP is one example of how Microsoft is continuing to work with partners to help better protect our mutual customers and deliver some of the world's best security response."

About the Microsoft Active Protections Program (MAPP)
