Research companies have recently acknowledged Cloudflare and Akamai as leaders in three reports.
Cloudflare has been named a Leader in three independent research reports for their Internet-native Zero Trust SASE platform, called Cloudflare One. These include the Forrester Wave: Enterprise Email Security report and IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Zero Trust Network Access and also the Network Edge Security as a Service Vendor Assessments.
“We are proud to be recognized as one of the only vendors that provide a comprehensive and deeply-integrated Zero Trust security and networking solution available today,” says Matthew Prince, the CEO and co-founder of Cloudflare.
According to Cloudflare, the recognition highlights its commitment to providing security solutions for multichannel threats. Cloudflare One claims it can address several critical use cases, including threat prevention and data protection across cloud, web, and private applications.
“Zero Trust includes an integrated approach to securing all of an organization’s applications, including its most ubiquitous cloud application, email,” adds Prince.
Akamai positioned as a leader in IDC network edge security as a service report
Akamai Technologies has been named a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Network Edge Security as a Service (NESaaS) 2023 Vendor Assessment. The report noted Akamai’s proven track record of delivering cloud security without performance trade-offs.
“Akamai is helping customers make this move via its programmable edge platform, which enables integration of existing enterprise security products and future investments in a unified architecture,” says Chris Rodriguez, an IDC research director of trusted network access and protection.
Akamai offers a portfolio of Zero Trust enterprise security solutions, including EAA, MFA services for ZTNA, and SIA service, which the company says provides Secure DNS and SWG functionality to help customers transition to a Zero Trust security architecture.
“Securing the network edge is a necessity in today’s digital landscape,” says Pavel Gurvich, the SVP and general manager of Enterprise Security at Akamai. “As enterprises migrate to cloud infrastructure, services and applications, the importance of securing the network edge cannot be overstated.”
Akamai has released a cloud and edge computing platform to bring data closer to the source while providing security and content delivery. Akamai Connected Cloud platform services are offered in the Asia Pacific-Japan region and will allow engineers to build secure, high-performance applications, the company says.
