“As companies move their workloads and data to the cloud, the question is no longer ‘Should we move our data to the cloud?’ but rather ‘What security precautions should we take to move our data to the cloud?’ ” * Forrester

Forrester recently conducted research to evaluate the top eight cloud security gateway (CSG) providers. Each vendor was judged based on 23 criteria, categorized into three different buckets: current offering, strategy, and market presence; thus creating The Forrester Wave™.

Some Key Takeaways

  • The CSG market is growing because more S&R professionals see CSG as an effective and simple way to address their top cloud security challenges, and they increasingly trust CSG providers to act as strategic partners, advising them on top cloud security decisions.
  • As on-premises network security tools become outdated and less effective, improved behavioral and cloud malware detection and data loss prevention will dictate which providers will lead the pack. Vendors that can provide data encryption, a large implementation, and a partner ecosystem position themselves to successfully deliver cloud security to their customers.*
