Case study:

Challenge

As Zscaler’s business has grown, it has become increasingly important to provide services and support to their customer base through easy to access online tools. Blisstering was contracted to develop two portals from many disparate web properties that Zscaler hosted, plus provide additional services to their customers. The Help Center is an aggregation of support documents and videos, as well as an entry place for support tickets, and a listing of known internet threats. The Trust portal provides clients with a level of visibility into Zscaler’s network infrastructure, to be alerted of any performance issues and planned maintenance.

Solution

Blisstering developed both the Help Center and the Trust Portal using Drupal 7, though the Trust Portal required a more complex architectural solution. This was built as a multisite environment, as Zscaler required separate pages to monitor their different Security Clouds, while sharing one unified database. This allowed Zscaler to input and modify content, and control the display across all of their Trust portals simultaneously.

Benefits

By using Blisstering’s Drupal development resources, Zscaler was able to successfully delegate these client-facing projects, while focusing their talent internally on their security infrastructure. Blisstering was also able to provide a very flexible response to any requested changes and modifications, allowing Zscaler to tweak and customize the developed product to ensure it properly met their needs.
