Rapidly Patch Vulnerabilities in a Secure Zscaler Environment


Organizations are grappling with an unrelenting onslaught of vulnerabilities, each vying for immediate attention and remediation. With finite resources and time, IT and security teams are faced with the daunting task of identifying, prioritizing, and patching these vulnerabilities effectively.  

Meanwhile, network administrators are working to maintain a secure environment with optimum performance, and they use solutions like Zscaler for secure internet access. Patching in these environments can be a challenge, due to security restrictions and bandwidth impact. This is where Adaptiva's OneSite Patch comes into play. OneSite Patch integrates with CrowdStrike Falcon to prioritize patches and streamline patch delivery in Zscaler environments to address these critical needs. Here’s how it works:

Part 1: Prioritize Vulnerabilities and Patches 

By seamlessly integrating with Falcon Exposure Management, OneSite Patch for CrowdStrike enables organizations to prioritize their vulnerabilities and fix them fast.   

OneSite Patch for CrowdStrike revolutionizes vulnerability remediation by automating the entire process. With a one-time configuration for each ExPRT rating severity, including settings for notifications, approvals, and test deployments, OneSite Patch autonomously initiates appropriate remediation actions as soon as a new vulnerability is detected. This automation spans the entire remediation lifecycle: 

  • Configurable alerts and approval workflows ensure stakeholder involvement at the right time 
  • Remediations are deployed according to predefined schedules, optimizing load balancing and minimizing disruptions 
  • Test groups enable initial deployment validation before broader rollouts 
  • Tailored end-user interactions and maintenance windows ensure patches are installed at optimal times without hindering productivity 

Part 2: Seamless and secure patch deployment 

OneSite Patch for CrowdStrike accelerates patch deployments to end users regardless of their location or network connection by leveraging Adaptiva’s innovative peer-to-peer (P2P) technology and automation within the OneSite Platform. For Zscaler users, OneSite offloads traffic from Zscaler Internet Access through Adaptiva’s secure distribution technology.  Then, OneSite’s secure P2P architecture takes advantage of surplus bandwidth and storage for continuous delivery of content regardless of network conditions and without requiring multiple downloads across the network. This ensures that Zscaler users can work productively from anywhere, confident that their devices are receiving necessary updates and security measures seamlessly.
