McAfee Named a 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Cloud Access Security Brokers


Distinction Based on Feedback and Ratings from End-User
Professionals Who Have Experience Purchasing, Implementing and/or Using
the Product or Service

SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–McAfee, the device-to-cloud cybersecurity company, today announced it
was named a 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Cloud
Access Security Brokers. Gartner defines the cloud access security
brokers (CASB)
market as products and services that provide visibility into general
cloud application usage, data protection and governance for
enterprise-sanctioned cloud applications. This technology is the result
of the need to secure the significantly increased adoption of cloud
services and access to them from users both within and outside of the
traditional enterprise perimeter.

“We take great pride in being named a 2018 Gartner Peer Insights
Customers’ Choice for Cloud Access Security Brokers,” said Rajiv Gupta,
senior vice president of the Cloud Security Business Unit at McAfee.
“McAfee/Skyhigh was the first cloud access security broker provider to
secure corporate data in the cloud by delivering a cloud-native security
solution. It is our customer satisfaction and feedback that continues to
drive our innovation and shape our products and services. We are
grateful for this feedback and recognition.”

“The Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice is a recognition of vendors
in this market by verified end-user professionals, taking into account
both the number of reviews and the overall user ratings.” To ensure fair
evaluation, Gartner maintains rigorous
for recognizing vendors with a high customer satisfaction
rate. For this distinction, a vendor must have a minimum of 50 published
reviews with an average overall rating of 4.2 stars or higher. McAfee
received 102
, more than twice the next vendor in the CASB category, and
an average rating of 4.6 out of 5 for McAfee Skyhigh Security Cloud as
of May 15, 2018.
