Zscaler is one of the most exciting brands that Lightwire works with, and to be singled out as a valued partner by its CEO, co-founder and chairman Jay Chaudhry is pretty special.
Taking it back a step, in the way of introductions for anyone who doesn’t yet know, Zscaler supplies an innovative range of hosted security products, the two most prominent of which are Zscaler Internet Access (ZIA) which provides secure access to external applications and Zscaler Private Access (ZPA) which provides secure access to locally hosted applications. With a market cap of US $16 billion and the only leader in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateways, this is a forward looking security powerhouse.
Jay and his team have given the New Zealand market a massive amount of attention, and as they tell it, this has been possible because:
The Instillery went above and beyond to create a compelling case for the NZ focus
Lightwire partnered with The Instillery to make it easy for Zscaler to do business in NZ
As Jeremy Nees, COO for the Instillery, puts it…
The result of this teamwork is that New Zealand business now have the lowest latency access possible to the worlds leading hosted security platform.
