CensorNet, a leading provider of cloud security solutions, today announced that it was named as a ‘Participant’ in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Cloud Security Gateways 2017 Vendor Assessment (doc #US43093817, October 2017). Profiling a total of 12 leading vendors, CensorNet’s evaluation is based on its capabilities and overall strategy.
“CASBs are now an integral part of a layered security approach. Given that Europe’s cloud adoption has traditionally been slower than its North American counterparts, being the only non-US headquartered vendor featured within the IDC MarketScape we believe is testament to the strength of our proposition,” said Ed Macnair, CEO of CensorNet.
“We continue to add new dimensions to our USS/CASB offering. This includes the recent API mode addition, which has improved our threat protection and data security capabilities, removing the blind spot that using a purely in-line solution can result in. As more and more European organizations look to accelerate their businesses through utilizing cloud applications, we’re looking to further expand our CASB feature set to meet future customer demand and strengthen our position in the market.”
CensorNet first released its cloud-based CASB solution in April 2015 to complement its existing email and web security products. Today, its unified and multi-layered approach to securing the cloud via its purpose built, multi-functional cloud security platform delivers integrated web security, email security, CASB and adaptive multi-factor authentication. This provides organizations with security-focused visibility and control over user access, data and assets and allows organizations to address the cyber security, audit, compliance and productivity issues associated with the use of cloud applications.
