Cloudflare One Positioned as a Leader in Three Independent Research Reports
Cloudflare has been named a Leader in three independent research reports that cite different solutions within its Internet-native Zero Trust SASE platform, Cloudflare One. The Forrester Wave and the IDC Marketscape both named Cloudflare a Leader in:
- The Forrester Wave: Enterprise Email Security, Q2 2023
- IDC Marketscape: Worldwide Zero Trust Network Access 2023 Vendor Assessment
- IDC Marketscape: Worldwide Network Edge Security as a Service 2023 Vendor Assessment
The old model of the corporate network has been made obsolete by mobile, SaaS, and the public cloud, further exacerbated by the explosion of digital transformation and the mass adoption of a hybrid work model. This rapid technology evolution, paired with the fact that threats such as phishing have become multichannel, has exposed the necessity for the adoption of a new more effective model that consolidates security natively in the cloud.
“We are proud to be recognised as one of the only vendors that provides a comprehensive and deeply-integrated Zero Trust security and networking solution available today,” said Matthew Prince, CEO and co-founder of Cloudflare. “And, while definitions may vary from vendor to vendor, you can’t have a complete Zero Trust platform without a native email solution.

We believe that being recognised as a leader across all three reports is just one more indication that we’re giving customers the most complete Zero Trust platform available.”

According to Forrester, “Cloudflare’s Zero Trust approach to email security is a fit for organisations that need easily communicated data and insights in addition to in-depth content analysis and processing.”
IDC MarketScape for Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA)

Cloudflare Access is the foundation of Cloudflare’s enterprise Zero Trust suite, and the linchpin in its enterprise security strategy.

IDC MarketScape for Network Edge Security as a Service (NESaaS)
