RSA And Zscaler Teaming Up To Deliver Trusted Access For Cloud Computing

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- RSA ® CONFERENCE --

News Summary:
  • RSA and Zscaler are collaborating to develop a new cloud-based solution to help secure access and identities in the cloud
  • Cloud-based solution to integrate RSA's Cloud Trust Authority, RSA ®'s Adaptive Authentication and Zscaler's Cloud Security service

Full Story:

RSA, The Security Division of EMC (NYSE: EMC) and Zscaler today announced they are jointly developing a cloud-based solution to assert continuous trust in identities accessing any web application or cloud service.  The solution is designed to help enable organizations to apply policy and control to identities even outside corporate networks, and simplify the challenge of managing user credentials associated with multiple cloud applications and web services.  The integration of risk-based authentication and identity federation from RSA's Cloud Trust Authority and RSA ® Adaptive Authentication solutions along with the inline web security capabilities of Zscaler's Cloud Security service would enable a ubiquitous service for continuous, risk-aware identification of users accessing the Internet.

The solution will include strong user authentication, identity federation, and dynamic risk assessment based on device identification, user behavioral profiling, and vulnerability detection.  The combined service being developed will be engineered to help organizations mitigate the risks of data theft, service abuse, and other threats that stem from insufficient authentication, stolen credentials or compromised user devices and accounts.  By monitoring the behavior of authenticated users and environmental conditions, the developed service will create a dynamic risk profile that can be used by web applications to minimize the potential of access from compromised accounts, bots, and malware, while still ensuring a positive, simple user experience.

Analyst Quote

Phillip Hochmuth, IDC Analyst

"Enterprises are shifting mission-critical applications and data into the cloud, and users are becoming more mobile than ever.  As a result more and more access to enterprise resources is occurring from outside corporate networks, using devices not controlled by the enterprise IT teams.  Attackers know that they can often steal corporate data more easily by compromising user accounts, sessions and endpoints, rather than attacking the enterprise servers or SaaS applications directly.  Zscaler and RSA are developing the industry's only solution to this growing risk by integrating dynamic, behavior–based authentication with a global web security platform that protects users and data across all applications and web destinations."
