campbell, ca - feb 8, 2016 - ESG Lab conducts in-depth product review, recommends Bitglass’ comprehensive security solution
Bitglass, the total data protection company, is featured in a new ESG Lab Spotlight, which recommends that any organization using or planning to use a public cloud application take a close look at the Bitglass solution. ESG highlights the importance of solutions such as Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASBs), built to solve the cloud and BYOD security challenge.
As part of the product review process, ESG Lab tested Bitglass features and capabilities, most notably the ability to secure access from any device and to secure data-at-rest both in the cloud and on end-users’ devices.
“In ESG Lab’s opinion, Bitglass provides a comprehensive CASB solution for an impressively large list of applications,” said Tony Palmer, ESG Lab Analyst. “Bitglass also protects mobile data at least as well as traditional mobile device management applications without using on-device software or agents. If your organization is currently using or planning to use public cloud applications with or without BYOD and mobile access, ESG Lab recommends taking a close look at Bitglass.”
ESG Lab calls the onboarding process for end-users “especially easy” as credentials automatically direct users through the proxy across any device on any network. Setting up policies for multiple cloud applications is said to be quick and easy and the list of supported applications “impressively large”.
The review finds that Bitglass delivers on the promise of total data protection in the data center, cloud, on mobile devices, and anywhere on the internet, without agents or certificates.
"Organizations understand that mobile is here to stay, but many are still struggling to secure data on unmanaged devices," said Nat Kausik, CEO, Bitglass. “CASBs are incredibly easy to deploy and as ESG Lab’s testing shows, effective in securing data everywhere without agents, meeting the demand for cloud data security without sacrificing end-user privacy.”
