CradlePoint, the global leader in 3G/4G wireless networking solutions for distributed enterprises, today announced a new partnership with Zscaler, the global security cloud for the mobile enterprise. The Zscaler Security Cloud now interoperates with CradlePoint networking solutions to allow its diverse customer base to consolidate security into a single, cloud delivered solution. Complementing CradlePoint’s Enterprise Cloud Manager, Zscaler provides enhanced network management, greater bandwidth control, and improved user security and data protection.

“CradlePoint believes that open, extensible cloud-managed networking best serves the needs of distributed enterprises for a more reliable, simplified network architecture with increased bandwidth and flexibility,” said Kent Woodruff, Chief Security Officer at CradlePoint. “We are excited to offer Zscaler’s solution to our enterprise customers that are looking to efficiently manage their dispersed network’s security. The Zscaler Security Cloud integration is a prime example of how our solutions can be extended to integrate best-of-class services to the edge of the network in a branch office or distributed location.”

The open, extensible nature of the CradlePoint platform enables the customization and accelerated deployment of networks through cloud-enabled services and applications. Through Enterprise Cloud Manager, CradlePoint’s cloud-based network management and application platform, CradlePoint networking solutions can be configured for use with Zscaler Security Cloud. The Zscaler solution is the first of many cloud services that will be offered in partnership with CradlePoint to deliver enterprise class networking to distributed locations.

“The erosion of the network perimeter from distributed enterprises requires distributed solutions that embrace the cloud to meet users as they connect from any device in any location,” said Punit Minocha, vice president of business development and mobile solutions, Zscaler. “The partnership between Zscaler and CradlePoint effectively enforces company-wide security policy at branch offices and geographically distributed networks without the cost or complexity of traditional security appliances.”

CradlePoint and Zscaler solutions combine to support secure ‘direct to internet’ traffic while simultaneously securing enterprise WAN traffic on VPN tunnels. Using CradlePoint Enterprise Cloud Manager, network administrators can configure networks for the Zscaler Security Cloud, increasing speed to deployment and streamlining the management of application traffic on the network’s edge in real-time. Network administrators can also perform a full inspection of all Internet traffic leaving the organization with near-zero latency, allocate bandwidth to business-critical applications, and protect users accessing the Internet from any location, on any device.

Today’s announcement builds upon CradlePoint’s expanding partner program that takes advantage of an open API platform to allow the integration and interoperability of partners’ best in class services. Zscaler’s solution bolsters CradlePoint’s offering and improves the functionality of CradlePoint’s distributed enterprise networking solutions. With CradlePoint and Zscaler, enterprise customers can achieve high availability for their branch offices with wired and wireless WAN diversity, while also maintaining strong security and policy management.
