Zscaler Named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateways for 8th Consecutive Year


Zscaler positioned furthest to the right for completeness of vision

SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Zscaler, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZS), the leader in cloud security, today
announced it was named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Secure
Web Gateways for the eighth year in a row. The report, which measures
companies on their ability to execute as well as their completeness of
vision, also positioned Zscaler furthest to the right for completeness
of vision.

According to Gartner, “The market for cloud-based secure web gateway
(SWG) services continues to grow more quickly than the market for
appliance-based SWGs.” Gartner notes, “The primary driver for the growth
of SWG cloud services is the rapid adoption of software as a service
(SaaS) applications, particularly the dominant ones (e.g., Office 365
and Salesforce). Rather than backhaul web traffic over expensive
Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) connections, enterprises are
implementing local internet breakouts from remote offices, and sending
web traffic directly to the internet. This approach mandates a change to
the enterprise’s security architecture, and most are choosing to adopt a
cloud-based SWG service.

Born in the cloud, Zscaler continues to lead the market in innovative
cloud services by moving security off the network and close to the
users, providing fast, secure connections regardless of location.

“We’re thrilled to be recognized as a Leader for the eighth consecutive
year and feel this recognition reaffirms the disruption that
purpose-built cloud solutions are bringing to enterprise security,” said
Jay Chaudhry, founder and CEO of Zscaler. “By moving security to the
cloud, organizations can fully realize the benefits of network and
application transformation.”

Zscaler serves more than 3,250 customers across all major industries and
currently counts over 300 of the Forbes Global 2000 as customers. The
Zscaler™ cloud platform processes more than 55 billion transactions and
detects 100 million threats per day from users across 185 countries.
