The Next-Gen CASB has been very busy in recent weeks. Bitglass has been winning awards, gaining media attention, developing strategic partnerships, advancing its technologies, signing new customers, and much more. So, we wanted to take a moment to highlight some of the Next-Gen CASB’s recent successes; specifically, earning recognition from The Wall Street Journal, partnering with Okta, and winning the Visionary Vendor of the Year award.
Bitglass leads the WSJ’s list of Top Tech Companies to Watch
The Wall Street Journal’s Top 25 Tech Companies to Watch is an annual list that recognizes startups leading in their industries. This year, Bitglass earned the number one spot as the top tech company. Bitglass is the only cloud access security broker and the only cloud security solution on the list. This recognition demonstrates the value of Bitglass’ Next-Gen CASB and shows why the company should be top of mind for any organization making use of the cloud.
The Next-Gen CASB partners with Okta to power advanced cloud security
Bitglass and Okta recently announced a technology partnership that will enhance enterprise security in the cloud. While, Okta provides leading identity capabilities that verify users’ identities for the enterprise, the Next-Gen CASB offers real-time security features built for the cloud. Together, the two solutions seamlessly enable comprehensive identity and access management (IAM) as well as data and threat protection.
