Lookout ,a leader in endpoint and cloud security solutions, today announced it has been named a “Strong Performer” in the Gartner® Peer Insights™ “Voice of the Customer” for Security Service Edge (SSE). Gartner Peer Insights is a reviews and ratings platform for technology end users to provide candid customer feedback and for technology decision makers to learn about a company’s products and services. The “Voice of the Customer” is a document that synthesizes these user reviews into insights for IT decision makers.
Gartner defines SSE as a technology that “secures access to the web, cloud services and private applications. Capabilities include access control, threat protection, data security, security monitoring and acceptable use control enforced by network-based and API-based integration. SSE is primarily delivered as a cloud-based service and may include on-premises or agent-based components.” According to Gartner, by 2025, 80% of organizations seeking to procure SSE-related security services will purchase a consolidated SSE solution rather than stand-alone cloud access security broker, secure web gateway, and ZTNA offerings, up from 15% in 2021.
Lookout’s SSE solution, the Lookout Cloud Security Platform, safeguards an organizations’ data, identifies and mitigates threats and facilitates secure access to the web, private apps and cloud services (SaaS) deployed in a multi-cloud environment. It combines Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) and Secure Web Gateway (SWG) natively in a single platform, significantly reducing the complexity, costs and number of security vendors and point solutions an IT department has to manage. It also provides the agility and scalability to keep pace with evolving, increasingly sophisticated threats.
