MENLO PARK, Calif., June 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Menlo Security, a pioneer of malware isolation, today announced that Gartner has named the company a Cool Vendor in its Cool Vendors in Security for Midsize Enterprise, 2017 report. Menlo Security is honored to be included as a security provider that offers "impactful approaches to improving security posture with finite resources."
In the May 2017 Cool Vendor Publication "Gartner estimates that organizations isolating internet web browsing will experience a 70% reduction in attacks that compromise end-user systems." We feel this validates many of the key recommendations that Menlo Security has made for years, advocating the implementation of browser isolation to limit web-based attacks while preserving end user productivity.
Today, even the most trusted websites can serve risky content, delivering malware to unsuspecting users. Rather than try to distinguish good content from bad, the Menlo Security Isolation Platform isolates and executes all Web content, email links and documents in the cloud. Without the need for software on the endpoint, the Menlo Security solution uses patented Adaptive Clientless Rendering™ technology to deliver a malware-free rendering of the user's isolated session to their native browser, providing a transparent user experience that is 100 percent safe every time.
"We are proud to be recognized as a Gartner Cool Vendor for our solutions that prevent exposure to malware and phishing attacks," said Peter Lunk, Vice President of Marketing for Menlo Security. "The web and email account for almost 90% of the threats facing enterprise security teams today, and traditional defenses simply aren't working. This problem requires a new approach that does not rely on detection, and our isolation platform is now proven in production with hundreds of customers worldwide."
Menlo Security's global elastic cloud simplifies deployments for companies of all sizes, while delivering a service uptime of 99.95%, on par or better than the major cloud providers. This combination of global scale and reliability allowed the company grow the number of protected end users by over 50x last year.
