Tata Communications Launches Global Virtual Proxy Service with Zscaler

Cloud-based Virtual Proxy Delivers Comprehensive Protection to Enterprises without Expensive, On-site Equipment

(PresseBox) ( Mumbai, )
Tata Communications, a leading provider of the new world of communications, has launched its Virtual Proxy (vProxy) managed security service in partnership with Zscaler, the industry's first multi-tenant SaaS security provider. Delivered over a cloud-based infrastructure, vProxy is already resonating well with organisations looking to leverage a one-stop, secure web security system for protection across the enterprise.

The vProxy managed service shortens the time and reduces the expense associated with enabling proxy services, and provides a solution that works for all users - both on-net and off-net. As a SaaS offering, vProxy delivers the necessary capacity and scalability that IT decision-makers need without the burden or expense of on-site equipment.

"Tata Communications' managed security services are designed to provide day-to-day security management and monitoring better, faster, and at lower cost than the enterprise can achieve through its own internal efforts. Our new vProxy service expands the list of capabilities that we can deliver to simplify and improve our customers' security operations," said David Wirt, Senior Vice President and Global Head of Managed Services, Tata Communications.

While typical proxy offerings route internet connections on behalf of users and apply policies to the inbound and outbound traffic, they can be very costly to implement because of the expense of the underlying platforms that customers must purchase. The vProxy service provides filtering for viruses, malware, and URLs, as well as providing capabilities for enforcing policies to inbound and outbound traffic without the need for customers to purchase a costly foundation platform. Optional capabilities include granular controls for Web 2.0 applications, data loss prevention, bandwidth control, and email filtering. Leveraging a globally-deployed network of scanning and enforcement nodes, vProxy can be enabled, configured, and customised to each organisation's unique requirements in as little as a few hours.

Jay Chaudhry, CEO of Zscaler says, "IT security decision-makers have been accustomed to buying, deploying, configuring, integrating, and operating a series of different solutions to accomplish what Zscaler has created, and Tata Communications delivers as a service. Tata Communications' vProxy delivers a comprehensive set of web security capabilities that are pre-integrated and designed to be quickly and easily implemented, so that customers can focus on running their business instead of worrying about whether it is appropriately safe-guarded."

Tata Communications delivers a full range of monitored and managed security solutions that are backed by aggressive performance-based Service Level Agreements (SLAs). The services are overseen by an experienced, globally-distributed support team using state-of-the-art systems, processes and tools. vProxy will be delivered over a cloud-based model.
