Out With The Old, In With The New

Zscaler was in the right place at the right time when COVID-19 struck, making it possible for the large cadre of newly remote workers to safely and conveniently access internal and external applications. The San Jose, Calif.-based cloud security vendor has notched a $25.89 billion valuation after nearly tripling its stock price over the past year, and is expecting to grow sales by 41.4 percent in the fiscal year ending July 31.

“When I started Zscaler, at that time the market wasn’t ready for it. But I could see the market was coming,” Chaudhry said. “Starting it early on gave me time to build a great architecture that scales. And as the market got hot, we were there way ahead of anybody else.”

In an interview at Best of Breed (BoB) Spring 2021, a virtual channel thought leadership conference hosted by CRN parent The Channel Company, Chaudhry discussed why the cloud is more safe than on-premises, why legacy security vendors spinning firewalls in the cloud will never succeed, and why VARs can safely walk away from large box vendors.
