Zscaler , a cloud security company , has announced it has completed its acquisition of ShiftRight , a closed-loop security workflow automation vendor .

ShiftRight ’ s workflow automation technology is currently being integrated into the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange cloud security platform to automate security management for the growing influx of risks and incidents organisations are experiencing . This integration will provide a simple , sophisticated solution to reduce incident resolution time dramatically .
“ I am excited to welcome the ShiftRight team into the Zscaler family ,” said Jay Chaudhry , CEO , Chairman and Founder of Zscaler . “ The decision to acquire ShiftRight was the logical next step because we saw the immense benefits of their technology during our preexisting technology partnership .

The integration of ShiftRight ’ s technology into Zscaler ’ s cloud platform will help customers establish clear lines of responsibility and provide real-time visibility for their security posture .”
Security teams are held accountable , but are not directly responsible , for many security-related actions . This misalignment has become a source of contention for organisations as the security landscape becomes crowded , fragmented and complex . In practice , the responsibility for cybersecurity is distributed throughout multiple teams in an organisation .
