Ericom Software Named an Outperformer in 2022 GigaOM Radar for Secure Service Access (SSA)
Company is the Only New SSA Entrant Ranked as an Outperformer in Report
New York, New York, (Wednesday, July 6, 2022) - Ericom Software, a leading provider of Zero Trust cloud cybersecurity solutions and developer of the ZTEdge™ Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) Platform, announced today that it was identified as an Outperformer in the recently published 2022 GigaOM Radar for Secure Service Access (SSA). Ericom Software, joined by Zscaler, Cloudflare, and Cato Networks as the four Outperformer SSA vendors, was recognized for its innovations and was the only company categorized as a New Entrant to be included in the Outperformer group.
GigaOM has identified the Secure Service Access (SSA) approach as a significant shift in the way organizations consume network security. Replacing multiple point products with a single integrated platform offering full interoperability and end-to-end redundancy, SSA shifts security consumption from either data center- or edge-centric to ubiquitous and user-centric. Leveraging cloud-native, layered security functions, SSA meets each organization’s unique needs irrespective of network architecture, cloud infrastructure, user location, or device.
Ericom’s ZTEdge Cloud Security Platform’s technical capabilities and feature set were reviewed against GigaOM’s extensive SSA solution criteria to evaluate its position in the market. Since the ZTEdge platform was publicly launched within the past year, Ericom was listed as a New Entrant in the GigaOM SSA Radar. Each vendor’s execution, roadmap, and ability to innovate determines where it is placed on the GigaOM SSA Radar chart. Ericom was placed in the Innovation and Platform Play quadrant of the chart, with the report identifying ZTEdge’s “single unified platform” approach and a number of advanced capabilities such as Web Application Isolation. It was also noted that Ericom’s inclusion in the short-list of Outperformers was based on the traction it is gaining based on its innovations.
The ZTEdge strengths highlighted in the report included its:
Single unified platform leveraging a high-availability cloud-first architecture
Inclusion of advanced isolation capabilities, built-in IAM and MFA, and Web Application Isolation for unmanaged device application access
Cloud Area Network capability that delivers secure, high-performance peer-to-peer connections between endpoints
Flexible delivery options, including its availability as a managed service from its MSSP partners
Ericom’s ZTEdge platform provides a broad set of Zero Trust capabilities aligned with GigaOM’s SSA framework. The solution helps organizations cut complexity, reduce cyber-risk, at an extremely affordable price point. ZTEdge supports multiple use cases, including:
Controlling SaaS application access: Limiting access to public cloud apps like Office 365 or Salesforce to only authenticated and authorized users, eliminating credential theft risk and restricting data sharing privileges.
Eliminating ransomware and phishing: Protecting users and their devices as they interact with the web and email.
Securing remote access to private web and cloud applications: Providing a simple way to connect remote workers with private cloud and on-premises applications and remote desktops.
Protecting apps and data from unmanaged device and BYOD risks: Delivering simple, secure system access for users on unmanaged devices, controlling application access and data sharing activity while also scanning traffic for malware threats and data exfiltration.
Segmenting networks and providing visibility: Segmenting and monitoring networks to stop threats like ransomware spread and detecting, blocking, and remediating intrusions.
Identifying users and authenticating devices: Securely connecting the right people and devices to the right applications and resources.
“Ericom’s ZTEdge platform includes a broad set of SSA capabilities, and leverages many of the key components that Ericom has been recognized for in the Enterprise Security space, including our innovative isolation-based offerings like Web Application Isolation and Web Browser Isolation,” explains David Canellos, Ericom Software President and CEO. “We are pleased that GigaOM recognized Ericom as an ‘Outperformer’ based on our innovations and execution and highlighted us as a vendor to watch. We are looking forward to continuing to build on the platform’s momentum and strong market acceptance.”
