Menlo Security Named a Visionary in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateways

Company Recognized for its Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

PALO ALTO, CA November 28, 2018 – Menlo Security today announced it has been named by Gartner Inc. to the Visionaries quadrant of the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateways. Menlo believes its innovative isolation-based approach to secure web gateways and enterprise security stands uniquely apart from competitors’ detection-based SWG solutions.

Menlo Security’s Isolation-Based SWG prevents advanced web-born threats and sophisticated phishing attacks with a cloud-based service that processes more than a billion web requests per day and protects millions of users worldwide.

Rather than detecting threats at the gateway or endpoint, the Menlo Security Isolation Platform acts as a digital partition in the cloud, first isolating and executing all web content with an always-on pool of isolated web browsers, then streaming clean, malware-free visual content to employees’ web browsers while simultaneously warning them against phishing scams at time of click.

“Legacy SWGs fail at completely stopping malware attacks, making infections via web and email content an everyday reality for their enterprise customers. We have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to transform the SWG market,” said Amir Ben-Efraim, CEO of Menlo Security. “Our laser focus on efficacy against malware delivers dramatic results, completely eliminating malware via our new isolation-based SWG. Our platform is deployed with many G2000 customers across the world, and our cloud makes it easy for new customers to experience these benefits firsthand.“

Menlo Security was founded to solve the fundamental problem that detection-based security technology is no longer effective against modern malware and advanced phishing attacks. The company chose to re-define the Secure Web Gateway market with its patented isolation-based approach, delivering a seamless, native user experience with the 100 percent security guarantee of fully isolated files and web sessions.

“No other vendor is re-imagining the full set of SWG capabilities using isolation as its core approach” continued Amir Ben-Efraim. “Menlo Security sees its debut in the Gartner Magic Quadrant as a reflection of the markets growing need for a solution that provides 100 percent malware prevention.”
