CAMPBELL, CA – Dec. 4, 2017 - Bitglass, the Total Data Protection company, has been named the only Visionary in Gartner’s 2017 Magic Quadrant for Cloud Access Security Brokers.

Bitglass’ Next-Gen agentless architecture uniquely combines rapid deployment with real-time data and threat protection for any application on any device.

“Enterprises choose Bitglass for its unique Next-Gen agentless architecture that combines ease of deployment with real-time data and threat protection for any app on any device,” said Rich Campagna, CEO, Bitglass. “Our product vision coupled with a rapidly expanding global team and partner network fuel the company’s momentum.”

According to Gartner, “by 2020, 60% of large enterprises will use a CASB to govern cloud services, up from less than 10% today.”* Bitglass believes its recognition validates its innovative data protection functionality, rapid deployability, straightforward policy management, and integrated mobile data protection.

Bitglass’ unique Next-Gen agentless architecture deploys rapidly and delivers real-time data protection, deep visibility, identity management, and complete threat protection for all SaaS, IaaS, and private cloud apps on any device, managed or unmanaged. Bitglass is the only CASB that includes agentless mobile security for BYOD preserving employee privacy.

“We believe our position as the sole Visionary in the CASB market is a powerful validation of our Next-Gen CASB architecture,” said Bitglass founder and CTO, Anurag Kahol. “Enterprise CASB requirements have evolved from basic capabilities such as visibility of shadow IT and leakage events, to real-time data and threat protection that prevents breaches altogether.”
