i see that many portfolio reviews this month include Zscaler with reviews focusing on some technical differentiations and new platform features.
(An interesting aside finds that the First Trust NASDAQ Cybersecurity ETF (CIBR) has Zscaler as it’s largest position at 7.58% with Crowdstrike next at 6.69% and Cloudflare in sixth place at 3.89%.)
In light of our budding ‘Golden Age For Cybersecurity’ and Data Reset Revolution, i thought that a look at some practical applications and Zscaler customer stories might be useful and informative and gives me/us a better understanding about real world applications of these evolving platform features.
