2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for CASB
Last week Gartner published its first Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) Magic Quadrant authored by Steve Riley and Craig Lawson. As one of the vendors who participated, Vaultive was noted as a “Vendor to Watch” due to our unique focus and capabilities in cloud data security, one of the four main pillars of CASB that the firm has defined in their research.
In the report, Gartner highlighted Vaultive’s focus on cloud data protection and feature-preserving encryption capabilities:
“Vaultive has developed an interesting approach to function-preserving encryption that involves creating and storing (with the data) a metadata transformation to manipulate search queries; no clear-text data or metadata is stored in SaaS applications or on the Vaultive appliance. Originally available only as a data protection proxy gateway, Vaultive has added API support for governing SaaS applications and the AWS administrative console.”
