Sunnyvale, California, January 19, 2010
Zscaler, the market leader in cloud-delivered, multi-tenant Security as a Service (SaaS), today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Visionaries quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateway1.
Gartner’s criteria for Completeness of Vision captures the technical quality and completeness of the product and organizational characteristics, such as how well the vendor understands this market, its history of innovation, its marketing and sales strategies, and its geographic presence.
“I believe Zscaler’s position in the visionaries quadrant for secure web gateway vendor clearly shows that Security as a Service is becoming the accepted way to deliver web security,” said Patrick Foxhoven CIO of CentraComm, a leading IT managed security and services provider. “In the light of zero-day vulnerabilities such as the one from Microsoft last week (CVE-2010-0249), Zscaler’s ability to protect partners and customers without having to install patches on any devices truly reaffirms our choice.”
“We feel this is strong confirmation of Zscaler’s ground-breaking technology that simplifies delivery of web security,” said Jay Chaudhry CEO of Zscaler. “With the largest global footprint of data centers and a true multi-tenant architecture, we are able to immediately protect customers on any device, anywhere. This makes Zscaler a very strong choice for any organization interested in SaaS web security.”
