Gartner’s most recent SWG Magic Quadrant published on November 11th, 2019, have yet again named Sangfor IAM (Internet Access Management) as the only Asian vendor among the SWG MQ vendors for 2019!

Sangfor IAM’s strong application control features, like the ability to apply granular policies to web-based applications like WhatsApp, WeChat and Facebook, are noted among their biggest strengths, as defined by the Gartner MQ. Sangfor IAM is also praised for its ability to block port-evasive applications and its strong emphasis on the localization of their application database, making it particularly strong in the Asian SWG market.

Gartner notes that notoriously high bandwidth prices in the APAC region are countered by Sangfor’s emphasis on providing granular control over users, applications, URL and traffic. Further control and added value is supplied by Sangfor’s Business Intelligence (BI) platform, performing analysis of user and entity behavior, and able to integrate with third-party solutions for greater flexibility.

SWG vitality continues to rise, as enterprise evolves from traditional MPLS links to WAN and SD-WAN, a more streamlined method of communication between branches in remote locations, as is so often the case in the APAC region. Sangfor IAM provides security services including professional internet bandwidth management, application control, URL filters, traffic control, information control, illegal hotspot/proxy control, behaviour analysis and wireless network management, among many other features.

Sangfor Technologies IAM solution has been listed in the Gartner MQ SWG reports for 8 consecutive years, since it’s MQ debut in 2011, and Sangfor continues to invest heavily in perfecting their products, expanding their offerings and providing the network security and services necessary for enterprise in the APAC region and globally.
