FREMONT, CA: Zscaler, one of the cloud security leaders, unveils its membership with Joint Cyber Defense Collaborative (JCDC). It aims to advance national cyber security. In partnership with the private sector, the federal government, states, localities, tribes, and territories, JCDC develops and implements joint cyber defense plans and operations.

“We founded Zscaler with the vision to create a modern cloud-native architecture for the seamless and secure exchange of information,” said Jay Chaudhry, CEO, chairman and founder of Zscaler. “Today, digital transformation has accelerated organizations’ move to cloud-based SaaS models and the internet is now the new corporate network -- rendering 30 years of networking and security principles ineffective. We are honored to be working with JCDC to leverage the threat intelligence in Zscaler’s zero trust platform to help stop large-scale cyberattacks, prevent data exfiltration, and block debilitating ransomware attempts.”

Zscaler secures sensitive data and facilitates greater employee productivity as they work from anywhere. It supports over 100 federal agencies and system integrators.

“JCDC addresses the global imperative for a more inclusive and operationally aligned community of cyber defenders to execute countermeasures against bad actors,” said Stephen Kovac, Chief Compliance Officer at Zscaler. “We have supported CISA for several years at the Federal level, but now we can help support our mutual resilience and ability to address immediate and future cyber incidents at a global level.”
