Eliminating digitalisation risks through cloud security

At the heart of the ongoing digital transformation revolution is the cloud. It’s the platform that enables businesses to access the resources needed to deliver digital services. However, this digital reinvention comes at a risk: it opens organisations up to security threats like cyberattacks or data breaches.

Today, when it comes to digital transformation, two names stand out: Zscaler and Ask4key.

Pioneering digital transformation

Zscaler is a cloud-based information security company that provides organisations with the technology and expertise to guide them on their journey to digitalisation. As one of the first movers in the space, Zscaler was already an established cloud native before its rivals had to transition to becoming distributed data centres. Through its Zero Trust Exchange platform, Zscaler secured users accessing software as a service and internet connectivity with a seamless user experience.

Being an innovator puts Zscaler ahead of the competition in terms of product maturity and how they design their solutions. In fact, Zscaler has been recognised in IT consulting firm Gartner’s 2020 Magic Quadrant, a series of market reports that rely on qualitative data analysis on certain tech industries. Zscaler has led the Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateways for 10 years.

Meanwhile, Ask4key is the largest Zscaler partner in Thailand and Malaysia. Like Zscaler, Ask4key has been in digitalisation and cloud security before they gained widespread adoption and acceptance – even before people thought cloud security was a good idea. It’s actually the first Zscaler partner in Thailand and Malaysia, and the only Zenith-tier partner in ASEAN.

Ask4key has successfully implemented secure Zscaler transformation projects for nearly 200,000 users and works with clients with up to 40,000 seats. It collaborates with large enterprises, including the top 10 companies in Thailand and Malaysia, from sectors such as airline, retail, petrochemicals, utilities, media entertainment, and stock exchange.

“Zscaler has worked with Ask4Key for the last four years in Malaysia and Thailand, and they have been a trusted business partner in growing our footprint in the market,” said Scott Robertson, Senior Vice President of Zscaler, Asia Pacific & Japan. “We have seen tremendous growth in Malaysia and Thailand as enterprises digitally transform to embrace cloud and work-from-anywhere initiatives with Zero Trust architecture. We are looking forward to continued success and growth with partners like Ask4Key.”

Damian Bach, Channel Account Manager at Zscaler, ASEAN & GCR, added: “Ask4Key has been paramount to Zscaler’s growth and success in Malaysia and Thailand by forging lasting strategic relationships with our key customers.”

Value beyond deployment

Once implementation is complete, Ask4key provides after-sales support and managed services for local clients in local languages. This service provides local businesses a wide safety net, even when staff eventually leave. With Ask4key’s after-sales support, clients have a constant partner throughout their entire Zscaler implementation journey.

Ask4key also holds training sessions and webinars in local languages to teach enterprises, engineers, and end users. These education events benefit those who prefer to learn in Malay or Thai. Topics include network security, how to deal with ransomware, migrating to the cloud, business continuity during lockdowns, working from home, and more.

If you’re thinking about starting your enterprise’s digital transformation through Zscaler, Ask4key can certainly help. Among various advantages, embarking on this journey will help organisations:

  • Increase efficiency and productivity.
  • Improve resource management.
  • Develop cyber resilience.
  • Anticipate customer needs.
