Symantec Corp. (NASDAQ: SYMC), the world’s leading cyber security company, today announced that it has been named by Gartner, Inc. as a Leader in the 2018 Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateways.

 

This is the eleventh consecutive time that Symantec (under the Blue Coat name prior to Symantec’s August 2016 acquisition) has been positioned as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateways. This year, Gartner evaluated 11 vendors on 15 criteria based on completeness of vision and ability to execute and positioned each vendor within the Magic Quadrant. Symantec was positioned highest on the ability to execute axis by Gartner.

 

Employees are increasingly accessing web content from a variety of devices and locations, creating challenges for security and IT teams to protect critical information from threats across the cloud, web, mobile networks, social media, and web-based email. The Symantec Secure Web Gateway product family includes cloud-delivered services and on-premises gateways that protect employees from malicious traffic and risky websites, and help secure sensitive information. These gateways deliver advanced threat prevention and compliance capabilities, enforcing security policies for all connected users regardless of location or device across networks, the web and cloud applications.

 

Built on an advanced proxy architecture that authenticates every user and enables deep inspection and control of encrypted web traffic, Symantec’s Secure Web Gateways offer a comprehensive set of capabilities designed to address the unique security and compliance challenges facing enterprises today. In addition to core proxy controls, the gateway includes malware inspection engines, sandboxing, data loss prevention (DLP), and cloud access security broker (CASB), as well as integration with multi-factor authentication. Symantec was the first in the industry to integrate innovative browser isolation into its Secure Web Gateways, enabling web browsing without risk of network and endpoint infection by isolating zero-day malware and advanced threats.

 

Symantec’s Secure Web Gateway has unique hybrid capabilities, including the ability to deploy gateways as appliances in large corporate data centers, combined with the Web Security Service in the cloud to support remote branches and mobile users. In hybrid deployments, Symantec’s gateways can be managed through a single policy administration console.

 

“As part of Symantec’s Integrated Cyber Defense Platform approach, our Secure Web Gateways provide protection to users from threats that originate from interactions with the web and is a key element to help ensuring security across the network, cloud, and endpoints,” said Art Gilliland, EVP and GM Enterprise Products, Symantec. “We are proud to be recognized for our consistent leadership in helping protect users wherever they go and on whatever device they are using, while enabling more efficient, effective security for the cloud generation.”
