Censornet, a leading provider of cloud security solutions, today announced it has been named as a product leader in the KuppingerCole 2018 Leadership Compass: Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASB) report for the third consecutive year. The report provides an overview of CASB vendors and their product or service offerings and is designed to assist businesses when selecting solutions.
CASBs address the challenges of security and compliance when using cloud services and provide a point of control over access to cloud services by any user and from any device. The CASB market has grown rapidly in recent years thanks to the ever-increasing use of cloud services within organisations. Censornet has been recognised as a challenger in the space, thanks to its innovative approach to CASB and the range of services it offers for control of access to cloud services.
Censornet first released its cloud-based CASB solution in April 2015 to complement its existing email and web security products. Today, its Unified Security Solution (USS) provides a multi-layered approach to securing the cloud via a purpose built, multi-functional cloud security platform, which delivers integrated web security, email security, CASB and adaptive multi-factor authentication. This provides organisations 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.
Ed Macnair, CEO, Censornet said, “The cloud has had a huge impact on businesses in a positive way, allowing faster and easier access to a lot of resources. That ease though often comes at the cost of security and many solutions simply aren’t able to protect these environments. Our USS was created specifically to address these issues, bringing together multiple security tools, including CASB, into a single platform. We are thrilled that KuppingerCole has recognised the efficacy of our solutions and named us as a product leader in the space, for the third year in a row.”
