We believe the report validates customer migration from on-premises to the cloud and security functions’ convergence into a SWG platform architecture.

Gartner’s 2020 Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateways (SWG) is now live, and Menlo Security has been named a Visionary for the third year in a row. In fact, Menlo Security moved further right in completeness of vision and upwards in ability to execute the and we believe is now on the cusp of the Leaders’ quadrant.

The Menlo Security Cloud Platform has been touted for eliminating all web and email threats, and it is the proven choice for organizations looking to successfully move applications and infrastructure to the cloud to provide fast and secure connections regardless of device, user, app location, or network.

Why We Believe Menlo Security Is Uniquely Positioned?

Our Isolation Core™: Menlo takes an isolation-by-default approach to cybersecurity. All web and email traffic is automatically isolated in a remote browser in the cloud—cutting off any access to the endpoint device. If a policy allows users to download content, an exception is made, and the web page, email, attachment, or document is opened in a sandbox or rendered to the user’s browser in read-only mode. This eliminates all malware without impacting user productivity.

Isolation + proxy capabilities: The Menlo Security Cloud Platform combines isolation with leading cloud proxy capabilities—including private access, cloud access security broker (CASB), and cloud firewall—providing legacy proxy-based functionality with comprehensive threat coverage. These technologies ensure that distributed users can continue to access data center applications when absolutely necessary without increasing risk.

Massive cloud scale: Menlo is one of the only SWG providers that can meet the massive scalability required by SASE deployments. Our global cloud-native architecture elastically auto-scales security and throughput for seamless on-demand growth of global users, devices, and applications. In fact, we’re in the process of rolling out to 3.5 million U.S. Department of Defense users for a contract with the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), and other large customers have deployed more than 30,000 seats in a single day with no issues.

As businesses of all sizes embrace remote working and migrate to Software as a Service (SaaS), security is being completely re-architected to combat modern-day threats such as phishing and ransomware. Traditional “detect and respond” approaches fail to provide the safety that users and businesses need. Menlo Security’s mission is to make Internet use safe, seamless, and effective. The Menlo Security Cloud SWG is an extensible security platform—built on a unique Isolation Core™—that delivers on the promise of cloud security.
