Zscaler Acquires AI Team and Technology of TrustPath


Zscaler, Inc. (ZS), the leader in cloud security, today announced that it has acquired market-leading artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technology and the development team of stealth security startup TrustPath. The acquisition extends Zscaler’s ability to derive intelligence from the 50 billion transactions processed daily at peak periods by its cloud to identify anomalous traffic, build user behavioral profiles, compute enterprise risk posture, and detect sophisticated targeted attacks as they emerge. Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

TrustPath developed artificial intelligence-based algorithms through machine learning to identify new threats, resulting in enhanced security efficacy and accelerated incident response.

Note how disruptive this is. Other security options require updating all these appliances that comprise everyone else’s “cloud” products, but w ZS it is updated w ZS only and no appliances need be updated by their customers. It is just a new part of security w 0 effort by the customer.

Perhaps customers may need to do some customization using their customer portal, but otherwise zero client effort required for this new capacity.
