Gartner identifies CASB as a “Transformational” technology in its Hype Cycle reports. The firm recommends users “Aim to move to a single provider for CASB, SWG and ZTNA as these services are on strong convergence paths.” According to Gartner, “CASBs are critical for organizations to secure usage of business-critical cloud services. The four key areas — visibility, compliance, data security and threat protection — are the primary value propositions for the usage of CASBs.”

According to Gartner, “MTD is emerging as a component that enables implementation of Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) for iOS and Android devices. MTD can provide an assessment of a device to a ZTNA trust broker, which can decide whether to allow access to a specific enterprise application. MTD can enable ZTNA on unmanaged iOS and Android devices, making it suitable for BYOD and work-from-home scenarios.”

Lookout is recognized in the following eleven Hype Cycle reports:

  • Hype Cycle for Cloud Security, 2021 (CASB)[1]
  • Hype Cycle for Data Security, 2021 (CASB)[2]
  • Hype Cycle for Security Operations, 2021 (CASB)[3]

“An integrated endpoint-to-cloud security solution has become an imperative due to the proliferation of remote users, the adoption of cloud applications, data transitioning to the cloud, and more network traffic flowing to public cloud services,” said Jim Dolce, CEO of Lookout. “To address the security challenges posed by these unstoppable trends, businesses need an integrated platform that can enforce consistent policies across the entire data path — from the endpoint device to cloud-based applications.”

Gartner also reports, “End-user organizations need to secure use of business-critical, cloud-delivered applications and infrastructure; secure general internet to prevent threats to users, regardless of their location; and improve access to existing services while taking advantage of zero trust concepts. Today, CASB is converging with SWG and ZTNA to deliver this “three-legged stool” concept to support all these use cases.”
