Bitglass Leads the Pack in KuppingerCole’s CASB Market Compass


Bitglass was just recognised in KuppingerCole’s Market Compass for Cloud Access Security Brokers. For modern organisations, CASBs are go-to solutions that are designed to secure the use of cloud-based resources like software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) platforms.

With a plethora of security vendors providing CASBs with different architectures, deployment modes, and capabilities, selecting the right solution can be overwhelming. KuppingerCole’s most recent Market Compass assists organisations in their search by detailing the state of the CASB space as a whole, and by reviewing each CASB on the market across nine key criteria. Specifically, these criteria are security, interoperability, usability, deployment, discovery, access control, data protection, compliance, and posture management.

Obviously, all of the above items are critically important for enterprise security in the cloud. Fortunately, Bitglass has always prioritised developing comprehensive security solutions that help organisations to stay safe and succeed in their business. As a result, Bitglass’ CASB received top ratings on every measured criteria, demonstrating its position as a leader in the report.

In addition to the above achievement, Bitglass was the vendor highlighted in the “Featured for Innovation” segment at the beginning of the report. Within the section, KuppingerCole references AJAX-VM and how the patented technology powers Bitglass’ reverse proxy, delivering agentless, real-time security for any app accessed by any device–of critical importance where BYOD is enabled. Additionally, Bitglass’ SmartEdge Secure Web Gateway is highlighted due to its unique status as the world’s only on-device SWG.  

At Bitglass, we appreciate the recognition and intend to continue driving innovation in the cloud security space. Our secure access service edge (SASE) offering integrates our CASB, SWG, and zero trust network access (ZTNA). The platform is designed to secure any interaction between any devices, apps, web destinations, on-premises resources, and infrastructure; and we’re just getting started.
