Weaknesses of Zscaler
Zscaler deployments are not simple, especially for the customer that needs to get up and running quickly and seamlessly. They claim it’s great for large enterprise (with deep pockets), but what about everyone else?
dope.swg prioritizes customers of all sizes and industries. Whether you have 100 employees or 100,000, deploying dope.swg is 100% self-driven in a few easy steps.
Outdated User Interface
Zscaler has an outdated user interface that is complicated and filled with mega menus upon jumbo menus of options. Not to mention its not single-console.
dope.swg fully considers the admin experience — your experience. Every click, button, and menu placed intentionally with 100ms “real-time” feedback. Security should be simple, fast, and beautiful.
Not Fit For Remote
Zscaler is not remote friendly. In today’s day and age, users are now all over the world, and are subject to performance degradation due to forced stopover data centers. And they face even more challenges in proxy restricted countries.
dope.swg does not rely on data centers. This allows us to work consistently in every country and network. Never worry about data center degradations again.

HOW ZSCALER WORKS
||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| HTTP DOWNGRADED
DOES ZSCALER SUPPORT HTTP2?
Until the 6.2 release they downgraded you to HTTP/1.1 because they felt “HTTP/2.0 is purely a web acceleration protocol (not security), so it should be viewed in the broader context of user experience throughout the platform.” In other words, they didn’t prioritize user experience.
dope.swg is HTTP/2 always, because speed is part of the user experience.
