McAfee Named a Leader in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for CASB

By on Oct 30, 2020

McAfee MVISION Cloud was the first to market with a CASB solution to address the need to secure corporate data in the cloud. Since then, Gartner has published several reports dedicated to the CASB market, which is a testament to the critical role CASBs play in enabling enterprise cloud adoption. Today, Gartner named McAfee a Leader in the 2020 annual Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASB) for the fourth time evaluating CASB vendors.

Cloud access security brokers have become an essential element of any cloud security strategy, helping organizations govern the use of cloud and protect sensitive data in the cloud. Security and risk management leaders concerned about their organizations’ cloud use should investigate CASBs.

In its fourth Magic Quadrant for Cloud Access Security Brokers, Gartner evaluated eight vendors that met its inclusion criteria. MVISION Cloud, as part of the MVISION family of products at McAfee, is recognized as a Leader in the report; and for the fourth year in a row.

  • Documentation – Access to all product documentation
  • Customer Peer Reviews – Gartner encourages customers to submit anonymized reviews via their Peer Insights program. You can read them here.
