At Zscaler our philosophy is, and always has been to be the best at what we do. That’s why 2 years ago we’ve partnered with Lightwire to deploy our Zscaler Internet Access (ZIA), a zero trust security exchange platform for the New Zealand market. We’ve since seen exponential growth including some of New Zealand’s largest organisations such as Fletcher buildings and Auckland City Council adopt ZIA.

The partnership with Lightwire has been game-changer that enables digital transformation for New Zealand organisations by securily connecting users, devices, and applications, anywhere and everywhere – making the internet the new secure corporate network.
