McAfee also is the only Cloud Access Security Broker to achieve distinction for every one of the three years of this announcement

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--RSA SECURITY CONFERENCE—McAfee, the device-to-cloud cybersecurity company, today announced it was the only vendor to be named the January 2020 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASBs). The recognition is based on customer feedback and ratings for McAfee MVISION Cloud, which provides a cloud-native and frictionless way for organizations to consistently protect their data and defend from threats across the spectrum of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS).


According to Gartner, “The Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice is a recognition of vendors in this market by verified end-user professionals, taking into account both the number of reviews and the overall user ratings.” To ensure fair evaluation, Gartner maintains rigorous criteria for recognizing vendors with a high customer satisfaction rate. For this distinction, a vendor must have a minimum of 50+ published reviews with an average overall rating of 4.5 stars or higher. McAfee received 90 reviews and an overall 4.6 rating for McAfee MVISION Cloud as of February 20, 2020.

“We are proud to be recognized as the Customers’ Choice for CASBs in 2020,” said Rajiv Gupta, senior vice president and general manager of cloud security, McAfee. “McAfee is committed to helping our customers protect their data and defend against threats both on the device and in the cloud. In today’s world of well-informed and discerning customers, rigorously validated customer reviews are the true mark of value and quality. We exist to serve our customers and this kind of recognition reinvigorates our commitment to innovate and evolve the MVISION platform so that our customers can safely leverage the cloud to accelerate their business.”

McAfee also received research recognition by being positioned as a Leader in the 2019 Gartner “Magic Quadrant for Cloud Access Security Brokers” 1 for the third consecutive year.
