What is the Gartner Magic Quadrant?
The Gartner Magic Quadrant is a culmination of research in a specific market, giving clients a wide-angle view of the relative positions of the market's competitors. By applying a graphical treatment and a uniform set of evaluation criteria, the Magic Quadrant helps clients quickly ascertain how well technology providers are executing their stated visions and how well they are performing against Gartner's market view.
What determines Gartner Magic Quadrant Leaders?
Leaders are high-momentum vendors (based on sales and mind share growth) with established track records in SWGs, as well as with vision and business investments indicating that they are well positioned for the future. In addition to offering strong SWG products and/or services, Leaders have built effective sales and distribution channels for their entire product portfolio. Leaders that offer on-premises and cloud services have recognized the strategic importance of a two-pronged sales and distribution channel. They have established a traditional value-added reseller channel to sell on-premises appliances, and they have also developed partnerships with ISPs and carriers to sell cloud services, oftentimes as an add-on to bandwidth contracts.
What is a Secure Web Gateway?
Secure web gateways (SWGs) utilize URL filtering, advanced threat defense and legacy malware protection to defend users from internet-borne threats, and to help enterprises enforce internet policy compliance. The market for Secure Web Gateway (SWG) solutions is traditionally characterized by legacy on-premises web security appliances, but as businesses increasingly look to securely transform from the old world of IT to the new world of cloud and mobility, it becomes apparent that security needs to move to the cloud as well. We believe that Gartner named Zscaler a leader in the Magic Quadrant because we generate more than 55% of the market share (as measured by revenue) for cloud-based secure web gateway solutions.
