Skyhigh Security Named a 2022 Gartner® Peer Insights™ Customers’ Choice for Security Service Edge
Receives Customers Choice distinction with one of the highest rankings in the Global Enterprise Segment
SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Skyhigh Security today announced it was named a ‘Customers’ Choice’ in the Gartner Peer Insights ‘Voice of the Customer’: Security Service Edge report. The Skyhigh Security Service Edge (SSE) platform achieved an overall rating of 4.7 out of five with 200 verified customer reviews, as of May 31, 2022; achieving the Customers Choice distinction across more segments than most of the other vendors included in the report. A complimentary copy of the report is available here.
Out of the 17 vendors assessed, Skyhigh Security received Customers’ Choice distinctions across all company size segments, the finance segment, and all deployment region segments, as defined by Gartner. Notably, Skyhigh Security was one of only two vendors with Customers' Choice distinctions in the Global Enterprise Segment (10B+ USD) and Europe, the Middle East and Africa segments. This peer-distinction follows the previous recognition of Skyhigh Security as a Leader in the 2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Security Service Edge and the 2022 Critical Capabilities for SSE, where it received the highest score amongst all vendors, across each of the Use Cases being evaluated: Secure Web and Cloud Usage, Detect and Mitigate Threats, Connecting and Securing Remote Workers, and Identifying and Protecting Sensitive Information.
“While we’re extremely proud of the many acknowledgements we’ve received from Gartner, we believe the most important are the reviews and ratings we receive from our customers,” said Gee Rittenhouse, CEO, Skyhigh Security. “It’s this valuable feedback that helps us continue to innovate and evolve our Skyhigh SSE platform, providing organizations with the ability to protect sensitive data no matter where their users are, what device they are using, and wherever their data resides: on the web, cloud, and private applications.”
With remote and hybrid workforces becoming the norm, organizations need long-term solutions in place to secure data that is no longer necessarily routed through their corporate network or managed devices. The Skyhigh SSE Portfolio is cloud-native, architected with Zero Trust principles from the ground up, and provides a common data loss prevention (DLP) and policy engine. The Skyhigh SSE portfolio includes Skyhigh Secure Web Gateway (SWG), Skyhigh Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), and Skyhigh Private Access, among other products, providing the most comprehensive portfolio in the market.
The Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice is based on feedback and ratings from end-user professionals who purchase, implement and/or use the Skyhigh Security platform. The methodology collects data to help clients with a synthesis of which vendor products are the most highly rated by customers for SSE solutions. Vendors recognized as a Customers’ Choice must have 50 or more approved ratings and an average overall rating of 4.5 stars or greater. In addition to providing an overall score, Gartner Peer Insights allows customers and prospects to pivot by company size, vertical, geography, date and reviewer role.
Below are some quotes from customers that contributed to this distinction. Note that UCE is now Skyhigh SSE and MVISION Cloud is now Skyhigh Cloud.
Project Manager, Government: Read full review here
“Due to the type of our business and sensitivity of the data that we manage, moving to the cloud was a decision we took with extreme care, after carefully analyzing all the security implications. We couldn't have moved to the cloud without a security solution in place to protect our data. They supported us in this long process with a consultative approach and MVISION Cloud was by far the best CASB solution we tested during the POC phase, both in terms of flexibility of configuration and coverage of security areas (SaaS, PaaS and IaaS).”
