As many folks are shifting to full time remote work, I’d like to put some technical resources together to help you find the information you’re looking for. We will continue to update this post with more resources as they become available. You can find our business continuity page with information on getting ZPA set up in your environment here -
If you want to try ZPA out visit our
ZPA Interactive demo page.
Our SEs are running a daily technical call that is open to anyone who would like to join. The call happens at 10am PST each weekday, for more info please visit the

In this deep dive I’ll discuss:
Supported platforms & deployment options
Connecting to ZIA & ZPA
User authentication and device fingerprinting
This week I’m posting my second session from Zenith Live - An Architect’s Guide to Securing Access to Multi-Clouds.
In this session we’re going to focus on showing you how Zscaler Private Access (ZPA) and Zscaler App (Z App) can provide seamless access in hybrid and multi-cloud environments. We’ll look at different reference architectures and walk through a demo using my environment to show how seamless it is to access multiple cloud resources.
