ShieldX Networks Builds Momentum as Cloud Security Leader

ShieldX Networks (ShieldX) today announced the company has been acknowledged for its market leadership in cloud security and microsegmentation with industry recognition and coverage in analyst reports from five firms - MarketsandMarkets, Research N Reports, Absolute Reports, HTF Market Intelligence and Financial Reports. ShieldX has also received numerous awards from non-industry analyst sources. ShieldX sees widespread recognition as a strong indication of the soaring demand for multi-cloud threat prevention and security automation. Organizations using ShieldX APEIRO to scale security and microsegmentation on demand are enabled to support business innovation, meet compliance requirements and protect against the latest cyberattacks.

In addition to recently announced recognition including SC Awards Finalist with customer Iowa State University and winner of three Info Security Products Guide Awards - ShieldX moved from "finalist" to the final "Short List" for two Cloud Awards, a designation reserved for only a handful of cloud vendors. Also, ShieldX has recently been listed a vendor for microsegmentation by five analyst firms.

ShieldX leverages DPI-based security and microsegmentation capabilities to give CIOs and CISOs confidence that their expansion and migration into cloud services will meet business growth, budget and risk requirements.

In 2017, Gartner (News - Alert) named ShieldX as an Overlay Vendor in their "Technology Insight for Microsegmentation"* report. In the report, author Greg Young wrote, "Microsegmentation is the future of modern data center and cloud security; but not getting the microsegmentation-supporting technology right can be analogous to building the wrong foundation for a building and trying to adapt afterward." Gartner included ShieldX within additional reports including it 2017 Hype Cycles for Cloud Security, Threat Facing Technology and Mobile Security.**
