What do you like best?

The portability of the security system. I was using Symantec endpoint and moved into ZScalar as a organization decision. The move was smooth and good and the portability that comes with ZScalar is amazing. Anything that needs to be done to the system can be done remote from access to management. The zscalar controls everything from phishing emails to malign attacks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The performance is a pain. I could really feel that the system is much slower to boot, operate and shut down itself. The emails or communications takes its own time to get delivered to the system. The delay sometimes are even 2 mins and more. So, yes the performance is a pain in Zzscalar. Also the remote management is not instant and would require the end client user ro wait a few mins before it takes effect. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Awesome product if you have more than 1000 systems to manage with a 10 member team across the globe. Performance is something to be concerned about yet it is a nice product and worth giving it a try Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I like that I get notifications from zscaler when there are issues with my internet security.

When I had internet issues I could also export my log and show my IT guy who was able to help me based on it Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
