Frost Radar™: Asia-Pacific Secure Web Gateway Market, 2021
Secure web gateway (SWG) vendors had a big year in 2020. The largest and most sophisticated of them pro-actively enhanced their portfolios with a range of new features and capabilities, most notably isolation technology, cloud access security broker (CASB), and data loss prevention (DLP).
The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically shifted the work environment in Asia-Pacific (APAC) towards remote working, which became a major driver for the adoption of cloud and hybrid security solutions. A large proportion of customers in APAC have preferred extending their existing security solutions rather than seeking new ones—a boon for vendors with flexible SWG deployment options.
The platform approach remains a major market trend as supply- and demand-side pressures push vendors to integrate a myriad of security solutions into unified platforms. In effect, this trend has intensified the competitive impulse among vendors to develop their own solution ecosystems.
Similarly, vendors are moving to a secure access service edge (SASE) approach, not only to integrate their security solutions but to unify security, networking, and, to some degree, the cloud.
The increasing lethality and volume of cyberattacks and customers’ growing reliance on the web intensify the necessity of enhanced web security in today’s enterprise environment.
