Zener diodes are highly doped diodes. This means their behavior in forward bias will be same as a normal diode. But while in reverse bias their junction potential is increased. This provides more voltage handling capabilities as the breakdown voltage is higher.

So when these diodes are in forward bias the cutoff voltage might go upto few volts but when used in Reverse bias turns out to be very high values. And hence they are used as voltage regulators!
