The company's recent financial results for the third fiscal quarter have further solidified its position in the market. Zscaler's revenue soared to an impressive $018.8 million, marking a substantial 46% increase compared to the previous year. This achievement not only exceeded the expectations of analysts but also surpassed the consensus figure reported by 170 basis points. The growth trajectory remains robust, although it is showing signs of slowing down.

One of the key factors contributing to Zscaler's success is its ability to scale and provide scalable security solutions to its clients. This capability has garnered significant attention and has been instrumental in attracting a loyal customer base. The company's commitment to innovation, particularly in the realm of artificial intelligence, has propelled it to the forefront of the industry.

Moreover, Zscaler's positive guidance for the upcoming fourth quarter further reinforces analysts confidence in the company's future performance. The management anticipates revenue and earnings to surpass the consensus figures put forth by analysts, indicating a promising outlook. However, it is important to note that the guidance might be cautious, considering the ever-evolving nature of the cybersecurity landscape.

Analysts have been closely monitoring Zscaler's progress and have responded with optimism. The 35 analysts who have provided current ratings on the company have all released reports  which include an increase in their price targets. This widespread positive sentiment reflects a shared belief in the company's potential for continued growth and success.

While Zscaler's shares have experienced fluctuations, with a recent rebound from a bottoming out, a sustained rally may not have commenced just yet. Dynamics indicate significant resistance at the $158.50 mark, which could impede further gains over the summer months. In the event that the market fails to breach this level, it is likely to remain range-bound. However, if Zscaler manages to surpass this hurdle, the next significant resistance awaits near $190.

As the company maintains its focus on pushing boundaries and addressing evolving cybersecurity needs, the stage is set for Zscaler to further establish its dominance in the industry.
