Frost & Sullivan Recognizes Menlo Security as a Growth and Innovation Leader in the Global Secure Web Gateway Market

Menlo Security stands out in a competitive market because of strong value proposition, customer-centric approach, and focus on innovation

Mountain View, California—February 17, 2022 In its worldwide Frost Radar Report for Secure Web Gateways, Frost & Sullivan has identified Menlo Security as a leader in both innovation and growth. The threat landscape is continually evolving with web-borne threats second only to email as the major threat vector for cyberattacks. This is just one factor contributing to the rapid growth of the Secure Web Gateway (SWG) market.

Because of the continual growth of new threats and the ever-increasing sophistication of these threats, the modern SWG must be able to identify advanced threats including ransomware, malware, trojans and phishing. In addition, the ability to offer integrated security across multiple vectors is a major trend as evidenced by the growth of SASE platforms that include SWG, CASB, Firewall as a Service, Zero Trust Network Access, and other security solutions into an integrated cloud security platform.

The complimentary Frost Radar report is available here.

“Menlo Security delivers a secure and scalable cloud SWG based on its unique and innovative Isolation Core architecture that provides advanced threat defense for 100% of web traffic to protect customers from zero-day threats that can bypass other security systems,” said, Tony Massimini, senior industry analyst, Security with Frost & Sullivan. “In addition, Menlo Security has rapidly expanded its global footprint across Europe and the Asia Pacific region with strong sales growth and most recently has opened an R&D center in India.”

Menlo Security continues to differentiate itself in the market through its strategy of providing web security that is cloud-delivered, integrated, and powered by an Isolation Core™. This ensures better threat prevention and risk management that is highly scalable as businesses rely more on a SASE architecture to protect their organizations.

“We are honored to be recognized by Frost & Sullivan for our work in the Secure Web Gateway market,” said Mark Guntrip, senior director of cybersecurity strategy for Menlo Security. “Menlo Security is committed to providing what others can’t–preventing attacks before they happen.”

Menlo Security’s robust growth strategy and customizable security solutions are helping it gain a strategic advantage by providing:

  • Cloud native, Isolation-powered Cloud Security Platform that protects against known and unknown threats and blocks them before they get to users. The Zero Trust based approach integrates SWG, CASB, DLP, RBI, Cloud Firewall and Analytics capabilities into a single interface
  • High performance, Elastic Edge, built to scale globally on demand, through a distributed global network of Point of Presence (PoP) worldwide. It dynamically scales to meet enterprise-level growth—from 500 users to over 3M— with no performance hit and is easily extensible with a rich set of APIs and integrations.
  • Security that is invisible to end users. Giving security and network teams the control and visibility they need to secure access to applications and resources with no impact on how end users work or the tools they use.
  • Focus for security operations teams by reducing security alerts; eliminating threats before they reach the network
