Zscaler Named A Leader In The Gartner Magic Quadrant For Secure Web Gateways For 8th Consecutive Year

Zscaler positioned furthest to the right for completeness of vision

San Jose, California, November 28, 2018

Zscaler, Inc., the leader in cloud security, today announced it was named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateways for the eighth year in a row. The report, which measures companies on their ability to execute as well as their completeness of vision, also positioned Zscaler furthest to the right for completeness of vision. 

According to Gartner, “The market for cloud-based secure web gateway (SWG) services continues to grow more quickly than the market for appliance-based SWGs.” Gartner notes, “The primary driver for the growth of SWG cloud services is the rapid adoption of software as a service (SaaS) applications, particularly the dominant ones (e.g., Office 365 and Salesforce). Rather than backhaul web traffic over expensive Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) connections, enterprises are implementing local internet breakouts from remote offices, and sending web traffic directly to the internet. This approach mandates a change to the enterprise’s security architecture, and most are choosing to adopt a cloud-based SWG service.

Born in the cloud, Zscaler continues to lead the market in innovative cloud services by moving security off the network and close to the users, providing fast, secure connections regardless of location.

“We’re thrilled to be recognized as a Leader for the eighth consecutive year and feel this recognition reaffirms the disruption that purpose-built cloud solutions are bringing to enterprise security,” said Jay Chaudhry, founder and CEO of Zscaler. “By moving security to the cloud, organizations can fully realize the benefits of network and application transformation.”
