Drew Schnabel VP of Federal Zscaler

TYSONS CORNER, VA, November 11, 2020 — Drew Schnabel, vice president of Zscaler's (Nasdaq: ZS) federal business, outlined five security attributes he believes the Department of Defense should incorporate into its distributed information technology environment, ExecutiveBiz reported Oct. 28.

In an Oct. 27 guest piece for GCN, he pointed to zero-trust architecture, secure-access service edge and multitenant cloud computing platform as among the key elements of data and cloud network protection.

"As defense agencies continue to move to the cloud and grow their telework environments, they need a more holistic security model to secure sensitive data across clouds and data centers, while protecting users and devices in any location," Schnabel added.
