Ready to migrate to Office 365? Get ready for some tough questions...

Hub-and-spoke networks are costly and results in appliance sprawl. Zscaler helps reduce cost and allows direct internet connections.

Is your network ready?

Microsoft recommends direct internet connections and not ExpressRoute.

The challenge is most companies centrally route traffic through Hub-and-Spoke networks and ExpressRoute.

To accommodate for Office 365, Zscaler's solution includes complete and scalable NGFW capabilities without the need for appliances.

Are your firewalls ready?

User traffic from Office 365 increases network utilization by 40%.

The problem is that most companies’ firewalls just aren’t up to the task and user experience suffers.

To keep Office 365 up and running requires constant firewall updates. Zscaler security cloud gives IT their time back and reduces cost.

Are you ready?
