Cato Networks Has Been Recognized as a Representative Vendor in the 2022 Gartner® Market Guide for Single-Vendor SASE
Market Guide for Single-Vendor SASE becomes the latest report to identify Cato as a Representative Vendor.
TEL AVIV, Israel, October 13, 2022 — Cato Networks, provider of the world’s most mature single-vendor SASE platform, announced today that it was again recognized by Gartner in the SASE category, this time as a Representative Vendor in the Gartner Market Guide for Single-Vendor SASE1.
By 2025, Gartner expects one-third of new SASE deployments to be based on a single-vendor SASE offering, up from 10% in 2022.
Cato delivers the most robust single-vendor SASE solution having introduced Cato SASE Cloud three-years before SASE’s introduction.
“Since Cato’s inception, we’ve believed that enterprise security and networking needed to converge together into a global cloud-native platform,” says Shlomo Kramer, CEO and co-founder of Cato Networks. “We believe our recognition as a Representative Vendor for single-vendor SASE attests to that vision. The Cato SASE Cloud is the only SASE solution built from the ground up as a converged, cloud-native, and globally distributed platform that effortlessly meets the needs of enterprises of all sizes, worldwide.”
Single-Vendor SASE Improves Security, Operations, and the User Experience
Interest in SASE has grown significantly following its introduction in 2019. Says Gartner, “End-user client inquiries on SASE grew 89% in 2021, as compared to 2020. Strong end-user interest in SASE and the related market for SSE continues into the first half of 2022 (up 15% as compared to 1H21).”
In its 2022 Gartner CIO and Technology Executive Survey, Gartner notes that SASE was the third most commonly cited technology investment after AI/ML and distributed cloud.
Over the next four years, Gartner expects the SASE market will grow at a CAGR of 32%, reaching almost $15 billion by 2025.
This report focused on single-vendor SASE. According to Gartner, Single-vendor SASE offerings deliver multiple converged network and security as-a-service capabilities — such as SD-WAN, secure web gateway (SWG), cloud access security broker (CASB), network firewalling and zero trust network access (ZTNA) — using a cloud-centric architecture.
By 2025, Gartner expects 50% of new SD-WAN purchases will be part of a single-vendor SASE offering, up from 10% in 2022.
According to Gartner, single-vendor SASE provides three benefits:
- Improved security posture by reducing attack surface, shortening remediation times, consistent security polices, and eliminating the and mistakes stemming from multiple vendors.
- Improved network and security staff efficacy by reducing deployment times, requiring fewer skills, and eliminating policies and redundancies.
- Improved user and administrator experience by avoiding potential performance issues from traffic moving between different vendors’ PoPs and, for administrators, primarily by using a single data lake, data model, and unified graph database for all event logging, reporting, alerting and relationship mappings.
Not all single-vendor SASE architectures are the same, however. According to Gartner, IT leaders should “Choose single-vendor SASE offerings that provide single-pass scanning, single unified console and data lake covering all functions to improve user experience and staff efficacy.”
