Frost & Sullivan Recognizes Menlo Security as a Growth and Innovation Leader in the Asia-Pacific Secure Web Gateway Market
Menlo Security stands out in a competitive market because of strong value proposition, customer-centric approach, and focus on innovation
SINGAPORE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#SWG–Frost & Sullivan has identified Menlo Security as a growth and innovation leader in the Frost Radar™: Asia-Pacific Secure Web Gateway (SWG) Market, 2021. The COVID-19 pandemic and new remote working realities have encouraged a majority of companies to adopt cloud and hybrid security solutions. In addition, the increasing sophistication and volume of cyberattacks, alongside the growing reliance on the web, are driving heightened security for the web vector in today’s enterprise environment.
From an ecosystem perspective, the platform approach is still a mainstay as supply chain issues push vendors to integrate a myriad of security solutions onto unified platforms. However, the Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) approach is gaining popularity because of its ability to integrate solutions with security, networking and the cloud.
Capitalizing on this demand, SWG vendors are proactively enhancing their portfolios with a range of new features and capabilities, including isolation technology, Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), and Data Loss Prevention (DLP). Furthermore, vendors that offer integrated, end-to-end security solutions will appeal to enterprises seeking to consolidate their security solutions and manage overheads of an expanded security perimeter.

“Menlo Security stands out for its unique isolation-centric approach to SWG. The company has capitalized on the biggest market trends for a platform approach, flexible deployment, and the integration of capabilities to meet its customers’ demands and increase the efficacy of its product,” noted Tien Vu Anh, Senior Industry Analyst, Cybersecurity at Frost & Sullivan. “Furthermore, the company has rapidly expanded its regional footprint, with strong growth in Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines and, most recently, India, with adoption across the government, BFSI, education, telco and manufacturing verticals.”
Menlo Security continues to differentiate itself in the market through its strategy of providing web security that is cloud-delivered, integrated, and powered by an Isolation Core™. This ensures better cyber threat/risk management that is highly scalable as businesses rely more on SASE architecture to protect their organizations.
“We are delighted to be recognized by Frost & Sullivan for our work in the Asia-Pacific secure web gateway market. This recognition will also encourage our team to strive and reach new heights as we continue to focus on driving industry leading innovation,” said Stephanie Boo, vice president, Asia Pacific.
