CipherCloud®, the market’s leading provider of integrated cloud security and data privacy, today announced that it has been named a Visionary in the Gartner 2020 “Magic Quadrant for Cloud Access Security Brokers.”1 CipherCloud was recognized as the top Visionary in the market for its ability to execute and completeness of vision, as well as its unique strength in providing data confidentiality within SaaS applications. This marks the third consecutive year that CipherCloud has been named a Visionary.
“We know that it is a tremendous endorsement of our solution and our overall strategy to attain Visionary status once again, further validating our industry leadership and innovation,” said Pravin Kothari, CipherCloud Founder and CEO. “We recently celebrated our tenth year in providing dedicated cloud security and data privacy to the world’s largest organizations, and we remain 100% focused on supporting customer needs today and into the future.”
Gartner further touted CipherCloud CASB+ for its market-leading interface, policy creation and ease of use, noting the speed with which practitioners can engage and deploy the solution to address their critical cloud security challenges. The CASB+ platform’s unique ability to offer integrated Rights Management and related enforcement also factors heavily into its powerful data protection, as highlighted in this year’s Magic Quadrant Report.
Moreover, the experts emphasized CipherCloud’s continued innovation and expanding product roadmap over the last year, which has pushed its capabilities into key CASB market adjacencies including Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) and Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), along with dedicated integrations for SD-WAN and web application firewall solutions.
In another key area of product expansion aimed at addressing highly strategic customer requirements around the analysis and remediation of risky cloud and SaaS apps configurations – Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) and SaaS Security Posture Management (SSPM) – Gartner noted that CipherCloud is now preferable to standalone tooling, offering more advanced capabilities than most competitors in the field today.
“As much as we are thrilled to be cited for our ability to compete on core aspects of CASB technology spanning visibility, data protection, threat prevention and compliance, we’re extremely pleased to gain Gartner’s recognition of our expanded reach into ZTNA, SASE and beyond,” Kothari said. “We see growing interest from numerous organizations looking for a unified platform that can address all of these challenges, along with CSPM and SSPM. We know this has also positioned us as a key provider within the context of Gartner’s emerging Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) market vision.”
