New report evaluates the Cloud Security Gateway/Cloud Access Security Broker market, citing Skyhigh’s “extensive application support”

CAMPBELL, Calif. — Nov. 15, 2016 — Skyhigh Networks, the world’s leading Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), today announced Forrester Research has recognized the company as a ‘Leader’ in The Forrester Wave™: Cloud Security Gateways, Q2 2016. Based on extensive hands-on testing of all products and a comprehensive analysis of the evaluated vendors, the report is an independent evaluation of the companies in the ‘Cloud Security Gateway’ (CSG) market, also known as CASB.

Forrester measured eight vendors using 23 criteria, covering areas such as current offering, strategy, and market presence. Forrester used a combination of five data sources to assess every vendor and assign Skyhigh a ‘Leader’ position. These included hands-on lab evaluations, vendor survey, product demo, customer reference calls and unsupervised demonstration environment usage.

“Skyhigh has helped define the CSG/CASB category over the past four years, and I believe this recognition as a ‘Leader’ in one of the industry’s most rigorous product evaluations is a strong validation of our commitment to technology innovation and to our business execution,” said Rajiv Gupta, co-founder and CEO, Skyhigh Networks. “Skyhigh is in a unique position to address the security concerns that all organizations in all industries have as they harness the power of the cloud.”

“The CSG market is growing because more [security and risk] S&R professionals see CSG as an effective and simple way to address their top cloud security challenges, and they increasingly trust CSG providers to act as strategic partners, advising them on top cloud security decisions,” stated the report.
