Zscaler To Keep WTA’s Digital Transformation Secure

The Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) has selected Zscaler, the leader in cloud security, to enhance its secure digital transformation initiatives.

With the implementation of Zscaler’s Zero Trust Exchange platform, the WTA can ensure that its staff and authorised parties have access to critical information and applications in a secure and efficient manner, which will help the WTA to continue to deliver high-quality sports events and services to its fans and athletes.

The WTA will use the platform for critical capabilities:

  • Provide WTA staff and authorised parties worldwide with fast, secure SaaS access and comprehensive visibility into internet traffic, including Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encrypted traffic, and advanced threat protection.
  • Supply secure and fast access to the WTA’s private applications in the private or public clouds.
  • Improve the digital experiences for the hybrid workforce and cloud with a unified view of application, CloudPath, and endpoint performance metrics.

Commenting on the partnership, WTA head of information security, Paul Sheth, said: “With Zscaler, we can enable our entire staff to work securely from anywhere two to three times faster than with competitive solutions.”

“The Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange is more mature than other security platforms in the market and allows us to move away from third-party VPN solutions, thus minimising the attack surface and eliminating additional point product purchases while also reducing operational overhead,” he said.

Zscaler SVP, product management, Steve House, added: “By selecting Zscaler, the WTA has not only accelerated its secure digital transformation but established an extensible and scalable zero trust foundation for future phases in its transformation journey.”

“We look forward to partnering with the WTA for years to come as it continues to adapt to meet the demands of its players, the media, and its global audiences,” he said.

The news comes after the WTA announced Abu Dhabi Open as the latest tournament to hit the women’s tour.
