Cloud security provider Zscaler has joined the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency’s Joint Cyber Defense Collaborative, a public-private collaboration aimed at strengthening the nation’s cybersecurity posture.
Zscaler said Monday it will offer expertise from its ThreatLabz embedded research team and intelligence from its cloud security platform to support the JCDC as it seeks to develop and implement joint cyber defense initiatives.
ThreatLabz researchers will analyze threat telemetry from over 270 billion transactions and 250,000 cloud updates per day to gather insights into the global threat landscape.
Zscaler will also assist the collaborative in future cyber strategy planning.
“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,” said Stephen Kovac, chief compliance officer at Zscaler.
Zscaler’s cloud-based zero trust network access platform is authorized at the moderate level under the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program.
