Glass Class – The ZScaler and Bitglass Integration
Hi, welcome to another episode of Glass Class. Today, we're going to talk about the Bitglass partnership with ZScaler and the integration between Bitglass and ZScaler and how you can leverage it. In today's marketplace, there are a lot of network security, cloud security, a lot of choices for customers on how to secure their new world of cloud. Fortunately, Bitglass and ZScaler have formed a partnership and integrated their clouds to provide you with a complete solution. As users go out to the internet, there are lots of bad things that can happen. There are malware, there are sites looking to phish you, there's a lot of bad places, and ZScaler is expert at protecting users from bad websites, from malware, and in general from the entire unknown web that's out there. Meanwhile, Bitglass is more focused on the sanctioned applications, the applications that you pay for to run your business, things like Office 365 or G-Suite or Dropbox. Combining the two allows you to control the bad from coming into your network with ZScaler and allow you to control the good and make sure that your applications and users are safe, and most importantly, the data that you put into these cloud applications. The way that this integration works is we have the two clouds. There's the ZScaler cloud and here is the Bitglass cloud. The first thing that Bitglass is able to do to help ZScaler is we can take ZScaler logs and bring them into Bitglass. The logs detail every user interaction, every website that a user went to. Bitglass can then take that information and plug it into its patent pending list that we can then map against these logs. We'll take the URLs that ZScaler has given Bitglass and figure out what are the applications that the users are going toward. So, there's a top 300 of apps that we combine with a risk score, and we feed that back to ZScaler. The risk score is coming from Bitglass back to ZScaler. Now, once these logs have been adjusted by Bitglass, ZScaler can now see what's happened and decide are there applications I actually want to block. Once these risk scores have been consumed, ZScaler can then add those to a block list. Anytime a user, coming from their phone let's say, is gonna try to go to that bad site through ZScaler, it's not going to happen. This block list is going to kick in and block that interaction. That's how the integration works. To find out more about it, you can visit the Bitglass site or the ZScaler site. Thanks for watching.
