SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 18, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Netskope, a leader in Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), today announced that Gartner, Inc. has recognized the company for the third year in a row as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Security Service Edge (SSE). The 2024 Magic Quadrant for SSE report shows Netskope to have the highest Ability to Execute and to be furthest in Completeness of Vision. Netskope was also shown to have the highest Ability to Execute and to be furthest in Completeness of Vision in the 2023 Magic Quadrant for SSE report.

More organizations than ever trust Netskope to be their SSE and SASE provider, including more than 3,000 customers, tens of millions of users, and over 30 of the Fortune 100. Among consistent validation of its SSE and SASE leadership, Netskope was recently recognized as a Leader and had the highest score in the Current Offering category in The Forrester Wave™: Security Service Edge Platforms, Q1 2024 report, and in 2023 was recognized as a leader in SSE and Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) in IDC MarketScape reports.

As part of the Netskope One platform, Netskope Intelligent SSE uses zero trust principles and AI to govern access, protect data, stop threats, and enable secure work-from-anywhere connectivity using Netskope's truly ground-up integrated and converged modules, including Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Secure Web Gateway (SWG), ZTNA, Remote Browser Isolation (RBI), Cloud Firewall, SSPM and Digital Experience Management (DEM). Netskope One is also powered by the Netskope NewEdge network, a worldwide security private cloud designed to deliver the industry's fastest and most secure access to data, applications, and websites without compromising network performance..

Market Demand for SSE

Secure, optimized work from anywhere is already recognized as a necessity and a primary business opportunity for all CIOs and their teams. The growth of SSE continues apace with the overall surge in the business adoption of a SASE architecture. In an October 2023 Forecast Analysis, Gartner stated that, "Over the next five years, the market for secure access service edge will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 29%, reaching over $25 billion by 2027."1

Gartner also predicts that "By 2027, the largest SD-WAN and SSE vendors will offer a completely converged single-vendor SASE solution"2, an offering that Netskope already provides and for which it continues to deliver new features and innovations.

"Netskope customers know that best-of-breed security and the fastest performance are simultaneously achievable. They are foundational to how they transform their security and networking investments and address the proliferation of cloud and AI we are seeing in the enterprise," said Sanjay Beri, CEO, Netskope. "It is a major accomplishment for us to be placed the highest in execution and furthest in vision in Security Service Edge for two consecutive years, and our ability to execute behind our vision has never once wavered. I'm extremely proud of our entire Netskope team, customers, and partners for what we've achieved in SSE, SASE, and zero trust. We're just getting started."

Netskope continues to dominate the SSE and SASE marketplace, innovate in AI and data and threat protection, and build critical ecosystem partnerships throughout enterprise technology. Recent announcements include:
