Censornet, the complete cloud security company, today announced that its Cloud Application Security (CASB) solution was rated the highest of 10 of the most significant vendors in the market for ‘customer satisfaction and ‘services and partners’ in Forresters Q1 2019 Forrester Wave evaluation, Cloud Security Gateways. The report evaluates cloud security gateway solutions by researching, analysing, and scoring each provider.
Censornet’s scores in the customer satisfaction category are a testament to the exceptional functionality and usability of its CASB solution and shows that the security platform is delivering functionality over and above customers’ expectations. This, combined with Censornet’s high score in the ‘services and partners’ category, is evidence that Censornet’s products not only work, but that the company is also exceptionally regarded by ecosystem partners.
The Cloud Application market has grown rapidly due to the increased availability and use of cloud services, with Forrester’s latest Wave report highlighting its recognition of the importance of CASB solutions. The report evaluates both leaders and challengers in the market, in order to help security and risk professionals select the one that best suits their needs. Censornet scored higher than any other vendor offering CASB tools for customer satisfaction and ‘services and partners’, showing its more focussed on delivering what customers and partners want and need than its competitors.
Ed Macnair, CEO, Censornet says, “We’re delighted that we’ve been included in this report and rated so outstandingly, which clearly highlights that Censornet has emerged as a key player in this sector. We’ve experienced strong growth in recent years and now have more customers than any other CASB provider in the market and this report indicates why.
“The availability and usability of cloud applications today has many benefits for businesses, but equally creates serious security vulnerabilities. Legacy information security technologies were not designed to deal with the new threats which have been created to target cloud applications, meaning CASBs are now an essential part of a layered security strategy, and we’re proud that Forrester has identified Censornet as one of the key providers in this market.”
