Lookout named a Strong Performer in 2022 by Gartner® Peer Insights™ Voice of the Customer for Security Service Edge

Customers cite the Lookout platform as a valuable investment that can effectively strengthen private application and cloud security governance

SYDNEY, August 17, 2022Look fora leader in endpoints and cloud security solutions, announced that 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 feedback to customers and 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 information 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 bolstered by network 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 a standalone cloud access security broker, secure web gateway, and ZTNA offerings. , compared to 15% in 2021.[1]

Lookout’s SSE solution, the Lookout Cloud Security Platform, protects an organization’s data, identifies and mitigates threats, and facilitates secure access to web, private applications, and cloud services (SaaS) deployed in a multi- cloud. This combined Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) and Secure Web Gateway (SWG) natively on a single platform, significantly Reduce the complexity, cost, and number of security vendors and point solutions an IT department must manage. It also provides the agility and scalability to keep pace with ever-changing and increasingly sophisticated threats.
