McAfee Named a Leader in the 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Access Security Brokers

McAfee, the device to cloud cybersecurity company, announced it has been positioned as a Leader in the 2019 Gartner “Magic Quadrant for Cloud Access Security Brokers” 1 for the third consecutive year*. In this report, Gartner evaluated nine different vendors on 15 different criteria. McAfee was evaluated based on its ability to execute and completeness of vision. A complimentary copy is available on the McAfee website.

“McAfee helped jump start the CASB market—we never stopped innovating and pushing the envelope of what a CASB Platform can do to protect data and stop threats from Shadow IT to Software-as-a-Service, Infrastructure-as-a-Service/Platform-as-a-Service,” said Rajiv Gupta, senior vice president of cloud security, McAfee. “We are proud to be placed as a leader in the 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for CASB and see this recognition as further validation that we are delivering on our mission to make cloud the most secure environment for business.”

Gartner defines the cloud access security brokers market as “products and services that address security gaps in an organization’s use of cloud services. This technology is the result of the need to secure cloud services — which are being adopted at a significantly increased rate — and provide access to them from users inside and outside the traditional enterprise perimeter, plus growing direct cloud-to-cloud access.”

McAfee’s 2019 roadmap has been shaped by several market-defining technology innovations and accolades:
