The editors at Solutions Review examine the Leaders quadrant in the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Security Service Edge. These are the major players in security service edge, according to analyst house Gartner, Inc.
Gartner defines Security Service Edge (SSE) as a platform 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 enforced by network-based and API-based integration. SSE is primarily delivered as a cloud-based service and may include on-premises or agent-based components. Gartner defines the user market as enterprises interested in Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) architecture, specifically SSE as part of a security suite and zero-trust network access (ZTNA). SSE customers may also be looking to secure remote users when the organization is virtual, is a heavy cloud consumer, or has no complex networking requirements for satellite locations.
The following providers have recently been named leaders in the 2022 Magic Quadrant for Security Service Edge. Each provider’s market share and product portfolios differ, making them attractive to the broader audience of data consumers. Read on to learn more about the major players in security service edge of 2022.
