Menlo Security, the only isolation-powered cloud security platform, today announced that it has been named a Visionary in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateways (SWG) for the third consecutive year.
The new model of remote work and migration from on-premises web security to cloud-delivered security is forcing organizations to completely re-architect their security to combat modern-day threats such as phishing and ransomware. According to Gartner, “Instead of the security perimeter being entombed in a box at the data center edge, the perimeter is now everywhere an enterprise needs it to be — a dynamically created, policy-based secure access service edge.” – “The Future of Network Security Is in the Cloud” – Published 30 August 2019 – ID G00441737.
Menlo distinguishes itself from competitors by challenging the traditional approach to protecting against web-based threats with its patented isolation technology, which ensures that customers can enforce the highest security irrespective of where their users are located or what device they are using to work with and access the Internet. Menlo’s unique architecture is inherently capable of meeting the dynamic elastic scale needed to support changing traffic patterns for its customers worldwide. This proven approach supports “security first” customers and isolates all users and traffic anywhere in the world.
Menlo has many large-scale, global enterprise and government deployments and is a good choice for enterprises with a high priority on security. One of these deployments is an award with partner By Light Professional IT Services LLC for a $198.9M, five-year production Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) for the Cloud-Based Internet Isolation (CBII) program to protect 3.5 million U.S. Department of Defense users worldwide.
Traditional legacy prevention approaches fail to provide the safety that users and businesses require. Menlo Security’s mission is to enable the world to connect, communicate and collaborate securely without compromise. To aid in this mission, the company recently announced $100M in Series E funding to continue to expand its extensible security platform to deliver cloud security capabilities like SWG, cloud access security broker (CASB) and Private Access. The Menlo Cloud Security Platform further provides unique visibility into browser interactions and web traffic patterns to reveal security blind spots and notify security teams of potential breaches with actionable alerts.
“We have experienced significant growth over this past year — with 155 percent new ARR growth — providing validation of our unique approach, which is fundamentally different from that of our competitors,” said Kowsik Guruswamy, CTO of Menlo Security. “We believe this momentum is a clear testament to our unique Isolation Core™ platform that is empowering organizations with the essential Internet security they need to outsmart threats and protect productivity.”
