Netskope , a leader in Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), scored highest or among the top two solutions cited in all Use Cases identified in the 2023 Gartner Critical Capabilities for Security Service Edge (SSE) report. In addition, Netskope is the only vendor named a Leader in the recently released 2023 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Security Service Edge that also ranked among the highest three scoring vendors for all four Use Cases in the 2023 Critical Capabilities for SSE.
In the Critical Capabilities report, Gartner evaluated the SSE offerings of 10 vendors and their ability to provide a broad set of features required to achieve SSE. Key Use Cases include:
- Identify and Protect Sensitive Information
- Secure Web and Cloud Usage
- Detect and Mitigate Threats
- Connect and Secure Remote Workers
Netskope received the highest scores among all vendors in two of four Use Cases—the Connect and Secure Remote Workers Use Case and the Identify and Protect Sensitive Information Use Case.
“As customers select SSE vendors, they should be confident with the knowledge that those vendors aren’t lagging in any key use cases,” said Jason Clark, Chief Strategy Officer, Netskope. “We are proud that Netskope has been recognized as a high-scoring vendor in the Critical Capabilities report, and is the only Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for SSE that was also ranked in the top three of any and all of the Critical Capabilities Use Cases.”
The Critical Capabilities report also identifies several important trends for organizations building SSE and SASE capabilities, including the following, which are noted by Gartner as strategic planning assumptions:
- By 2025, 70% of organizations that implement agent-based zero trust network access (ZTNA) will choose either a SASE or SSE provider for ZTNA, rather than a stand-alone offering
- By 2026, 85% of organizations seeking to procure cloud access security broker (CASB), secure web gateway (SWG) or ZTNA access offerings will obtain these from a converged solution
- By 2026, 45% of organizations will prioritize advanced data security features for inspection of data at rest and in motion as a selection criterion for SSE
