18 Nov 2019

Cloud security company Zscaler has announced it was named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateways for the ninth year in a row.

The report, which evaluated 11 vendors based on their ability to execute and their completeness of vision, positioned Zscaler furthest in completeness of vision and highest in the ability to execute.

“Zscaler was built for the cloud, and we are dedicated to continued innovation so that our customers have a holistic way to securely navigate their cloud transformation,” says Zscaler founder and CEO Jay Chaudhry.

“We believe our placement in the Gartner Magic Quadrant is a validation of our cloud approach and evidence that a unified security platform-as-a-service enables cloud-first transformation for modern organisations.”

The Zscaler platform processes more than 70 billion transactions and detects approximately 100 million threats per day across 185 countries.

Zscaler serves thousands of organisations in all major industries, including more than 400 of the Forbes Global 2000.
