Industry analysts perform a huge service in evaluating markets, technology, vendors and sharing their insights with customers via one-on-one discussions and regular publications and events. Gartner publishes Magic Quadrant reports that review a particular market and evaluate vendors for their Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute.
Gartner also has a separate team of analysts that evaluates single products in greater depth. Their reports review each product or product family across hundreds of criteria and produce a scorecard, key findings and customer recommendations.
We are proud to read the new Solution Scorecard for McAfee MVISION Cloud by Gartner, where we scored “94 out of 100 against Gartner’s 480-point Solution Criteria for Cloud Access Security Brokers”. MVISION Cloud was the only CASB product to score 94 out of 100 in the 2021 scorecards.”
We have licensed it for anyone to read.
We believe, for this review, they reviewed 480 sets of criteria across eleven areas from architecture, management and functions such as data security, threat protection and Cloud Security Posture Management. Once they had reviewed and weighted each attribute, MVISION Cloud came out with a total blended total score of 94 out of 100.
The framework that they used splits each of the criteria into one of three categories – Required, Preferred and Optional. We are pleased to see that they consider MVISION Cloud provides 97% of the Required functionality.
