Troye has launched a security solution for the modern data centre, combining Citrix SD-WAN and ZScaler, to provide a better cloud security

The company aims to provide cost-effective and available WAN, securing branch internet traffic, enabling compliance with corporate content and accessing policies.

The bandwidth control feature protects major applications and limits recreational applications by location or time of day which is managed globally from a single management console.

With the Zscaler security solution being cloud-based, it avoids the need to add additional security appliances to the network.

Kurt Goodall, technical director at Troye, said, “The ideal solution to enforce security without adding cost, complexity or latency is to route all branch Internet traffic from the Citrix NetScaler SD-WAN appliance to the Zscaler Cloud Security Platform.”

The Zscaler Cloud Security Platform acts as a series of security check posts in more than 100 data centres around the world.

“Zscaler connects users and the internet, inspecting every byte of traffic, even if it is encrypted or compressed. But customers still grapple with expensive Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) links to backhaul branch traffic to the corporate data centre in order to filter traffic through security appliances, to detect malware and enforce policies,” Goodall explained.

As the need for bandwidth increases in branch offices, enterprises have had tough choices, with each option presenting trade-offs in performance, cost and security. SD-WAN aims to simplify the customers’ choices with a cost-effective manner.

“Zscaler puts the enterprise security stack in the cloud, arming each branch with a secure web gateway, cloud firewall, cloud sandbox and other security protections. Together, Zscaler and SD-WAN provide branch and remote users with performance and security that are both first-class,” Goodall concluded.
