Netskope, a leader in Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), today announced that Gartner, Inc. has recognized the company for the second year in a row as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Security Service Edge (SSE). The report shows Netskope to have the highest Ability to Execute and to be furthest in Completeness of Vision in the 2023 Magic Quadrant for SSE.
As a framework for converging networks and security, SASE helps teams safeguard data, provide fast and reliable access to networks and applications, and realize better efficiency and return-on-investment by addressing both network and security challenges through a unified architecture. SSE encompasses the security technologies that, when successfully converged with SD-WAN capabilities, enable successful SASE.
Organizations also increasingly seek SSE and SASE capabilities from fewer vendors as they prioritize the cost and management benefits of reducing vendor and tool sprawl. Gartner notes that “by 2025, 80% of enterprises will have adopted a strategy to unify web, cloud services and private application access using a SASE/SSE architecture, up from 20% in 2021.”
A Leader in the Magic Quadrant for SSE
The Netskope converged SASE platform includes Netskope’s industry-leading Intelligent Security Service Edge (SSE) and Borderless SD-WAN technologies, all of which are crucial to providing the optimized access and zero trust-based security required in a modern networking and security technology stack.
Netskope Intelligent SSE enables secure enterprise digital transformation and secure work-from-anywhere connectivity using integrated Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Secure Web Gateway (SWG), and Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) capabilities, with Remote Browser Isolation (RBI) and Cloud Firewall included. Netskope’s architecture is powered by the NewEdge network—a security private cloud designed from the ground up to deliver security without performance trade-offs—for fast and secure access from any location to data, applications, and websites wherever they reside.
“Our vision when founding Netskope was that traditional network and security perimeters would transform, and we would need to deliver a cloud-first, data- first, and customer-centric approach for helping teams achieve success,” said Sanjay Beri, Netskope CEO and co-founder. “We are very proud of this recognition by Gartner and our ongoing growth with some of the world’s largest and most discerning customers. We feel this acknowledgement recognizes that our early vision over a decade ago was the right one, and that Netskope is ideally positioned to help every customer on a SASE journey, anywhere in the world.”
