Persistent Systems (BSE and NSE: PERSISTENT), a global Digital Engineering leader, today announced that it has further strengthened its strategic relationship with Zscaler by reaching the Zenith partnership tier. With the global increase in cyberattacks, security has become paramount for all organizations regardless of size and industry. Persistent aims to leverage its Zscaler partnership to assist clients in strengthening and modernizing their security posture with a zero-trust security model. This is a key component of enabling clients to create a secure environment to migrate and modernize their workloads on their cloud journey.

Achieving this level demonstrates Persistent’s commitment and investments in the Zscaler platforms and the Company’s experience in effectively implementing security solutions. Investments include pre-built automation for faster deployments, playbooks for troubleshooting, and custom integrations to client’s existing security stack.

In addition, Persistent has an expanded relationship as a Zscaler client. Through its enterprise deployment of the Zscaler solutions, Persistent has fortified its cyber security infrastructure and improved its security posture. This deployment has also enabled Persistent to consolidate security tools, reduce operational expenses, and lower maintenance costs.

Persistent’s strong cloud and security practice, coupled with Zscaler’s modern security-as-a-service cloud platforms, enables the Company to deliver zero-trust and security transformation to its clients across industries. As part of this partner relationship, Persistent is developing a joint go-to-market strategy with Zscaler to address the challenges that Private Equity firms and their portfolio companies face as they transition through carve-outs, acquisitions, and divestitures related to ensuring a secure infrastructure and work environments.
