The NHS has signed a deal with Zscaler – a cloud-based security and bandwidth management company.
A document seen by IT Pro detailed a Zscaler webinar stating the NHS was a customer, even though no formal announcement has been made.
Zscaler’s product offering sends all customer traffic through the cloud, analyses it and then allows organisations to add policies on both security and bandwidth management.
No further details on the contract have been officially released.
Its key protection areas include email, web security and data loss prevention. The last area will be important for the NHS, which has seen data leave its premises and go missing numerous times.
