Zscaler is benefiting from the rising demand for cyber-security solutions due to the slew of data breaches in the ongoing online and remote work wave across the globe. In December 2022, the company joined the Joint Cyber Defense Collaborative (JCDC), established by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, to enhance the collective cybersecurity posture of the United States and strategic international partners.
Being a JCDC member, Zscaler’s ThreatLabz actively tracks various threat actor groups behind the scenes keeping up with the tools, techniques and procedures, as well as command and control infrastructure to develop effective countermeasures. This enables JCDC and its partners to increase situational awareness and understanding of cyber defense against some of the most advanced global threats.
