June 2016 by Coline Magne
Zscaler announced it has been named Leader by Gartner, Inc. in the 2016 Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateways. The report evaluates vendors on their “ability to execute” and “completeness of vision.” This is the sixth consecutive year that Zscaler has been recognized as a Leader amongst security providers.
The market for Secure Web Gateway (SWG) solutions is traditionally characterized by legacy on-premises appliances, but as businesses increasingly adopt cloud services, expand their workforce in remote locations and support mobile devices, the need for cloud-based security services is growing rapidly.
According to Gartner, “cloud services have experienced a 35 percent five-year compound annual growth rate, while on-premises appliances have only grown by 6 percent during the same period.”
