SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 3, 2016) - Zscaler, the leading cloud security company, announced today that Zscaler's Cloud Firewall was recognized by a panel representing the audience of SC Magazine as the top solution in the Cloud Computing Security category at the SC Awards 2016. The announcement was made Tuesday, March 1, 2016 during the 19th annual SC Awards Gala in San Francisco.

"We are honored to have been awarded Best Cloud Computing Security Solution by SC Magazine," said Jay Chaudhry, founder and CEO at Zscaler. "As organizations increase their reliance on cloud applications and services; move to a distributed, remote workforce and enable employees to use mobile devices, their appliance-centric gateway security is becoming ineffective and obsolete. Zscaler's cloud security platform provides full inline threat protection to guard against cyber attacks, prevents data leakage and allows safe access to cloud applications by employees no matter where they are located and what device they are using to access the Internet."

Winners for the newly revamped Trust Awards (formerly Reader Trust Awards) were chosen by a distinguished group of leading IT security professionals from the SC Magazine readership and selected by SCMagazine's editorial team. Entrants were narrowed down to a select group of finalists before undergoing a rigorous final judging process to determine the winner in each category.

"As a winner in the Trust Award category, Zscaler's Cloud Firewall stands out for its innovative approach to protecting businesses against the ever-changing threat landscape," said Illena Armstrong, vice president, editorial, SC Magazine. "This is a significant achievement and one that shows Zscaler's dedication to improving the IT security industry as a whole."

The SC Awards, now in its 19th year, are recognized throughout the security industry as the gold standard of excellence in cybersecurity. With the awards, SC Magazine recognizes the achievements of security professionals in the field, the innovations happening in the vendor and service provider communities, and the vigilant work of government, commercial and nonprofit entities.
