Zscaler Positioned as a Leader in the Gartner Secure Web Gateway Magic Quadrant for Seventh Consecutive Year

Zscaler is Positioned the Furthest for Completeness of Vision

San Jose, California, June 15, 2017

Zscaler, the leading cloud security company, today announced it was named a Leader by Gartner, Inc. in the 2017 Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateways. The report evaluates vendors on their “ability to execute” and “completeness of vision.” This is the seventh consecutive year that Zscaler has been recognized as a Leader.

The market for Secure Web Gateway (SWG) solutions is traditionally characterized by legacy on-premises 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.

According to Gartner, “while SWG appliances still represent approximately 71% of the market share (as measured by revenue), the historical five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of cloud services is 32% (as compared to the five-year CAGR for appliances at 5%). Enterprises are implementing the cloud-based SWGs to provide security protection for remote offices that are connected directly to the internet.”

"We are delighted by this continued recognition from Gartner, and feel this reinforces the critical differences between a security service designed for the cloud versus legacy security vendors racking and stacking their traditional appliances in a datacenter and calling it a cloud," said Jay Chaudhry, founder and CEO of Zscaler. "Zscaler is eliminating the need to buy, deploy and manage security appliances and bringing real innovation to the market.”

More than 5,000 organizations around the world have chosen Zscaler to protect their employees and data. The Zscaler™ platform processes more than 35 billion transactions per day and protects its more than fifteen million users in 185 countries across the global network of more than 100 data centers.
