CAMPBELL, CA - November 1, 2018 - Bitglass, the Next-Gen CASB company, has been named a Leader in Gartner’s 2018 Magic Quadrant for Cloud Access Security Brokers. In this second annual report, Gartner evaluated 13 vendors on 15 different criteria. Bitglass was evaluated based on its ability to execute and its completeness of vision.

Deployed across hundreds of enterprises, the Bitglass solution offers comprehensive data & threat protection for the widest range of applications, including managed apps like Office 365, IaaS platforms like AWS, and unmanaged apps like personal Dropbox and social media.

“Bitglass is delighted to be named as a Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Cloud Access Security Brokers. We believe that this further validates our unique architecture, ease of deployment, and strong customer satisfaction across all industries,” said Rich Campagna, CMO of Bitglass. “Enterprises around the world turn to Bitglass for real-time data and threat protection in the cloud, at access, and on any device.”
