What is the Gartner Magic Quadrant?

Gartner Magic Quadrant is a culmination of research in a specific market, giving you 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, a Magic Quadrant helps you quickly ascertain how well technology providers are executing their stated visions and how well they are performing against Gartner’s market view.

What determines a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateways?

Leaders are high-momentum vendors (based on sales and mind share growth) with established track records in SWGs, as well as 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 portfolios. 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 (VAR) channel to sell on-premises appliances. They have also developed partnerships with ISPs and carriers to sell cloud services, often as an add-on to bandwidth contracts.
