SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 12, 2016) -  CensorNet, the complete cloud security company, today announced it has been named as a product leader in the KuppingerCole 2016 Leadership Compass: Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASB) report. The report is the first global competitive analysis of CASB solutions and is designed to assist businesses in identifying the vendors and products in the market that should be considered when choosing CASB products.

The CASB market has grown rapidly following an increase in availability and use of cloud services. Recognising the growing importance of CASB solutions, KuppingerCole conducted an independent analysis of the market to assist organisations looking for products to address the challenges of security and compliance around the use of cloud services. CensorNet was included in the report as it provides a range of solutions to help with the challenges of managing cloud applications in an increasingly mobile work environment.

CensorNet Unified Security Solution allows organisations to monitor and control the use of both web and cloud applications from a single management dashboard. The platform uses authentication technology to help administrators safeguard access to the service and protect employees against cyber-threats, accidental or intentional leaks of sensitive data, and keep the business safe from the risks associated with cloud applications and Shadow IT. 

Ed Macnair, CEO, CensorNet says, "The easy availability and usability of cloud applications has a number of benefits for businesses, but also presents a big security issue. Legacy information security technologies were not designed to deal with these evolving threats. CASBs are now an important part of a layered security strategy and we're glad KuppingerCole has identified that.

"We're absolutely delighted that our solutions have been named as a product leader in the report. It's a testament to the innovation and hard work of the team. Our products are at our core and we're proud KuppingerCole has recognised the strength of our offering."
