Zero Networks Named a Cool Vendor in the Gartner 2020 “Cool Vendors in Network and Endpoint Security” Report

Zero Networks is shutting down network access with a new category of endpoint protection

NEW YORK & TEL AVIV, Israel--()--Zero Networks (, the pioneer in automating self-service least privilege networking, announced it has been recognized in the list of 2020 “Cool Vendors in Network and Endpoint Security” report by leading research and advisory firm Gartner, Inc.

“To get this kind of recognition within the first year of launching can only be described as cool!” said Benny Lakunishok, co-founder and CEO of Zero Networks. “To us, the acknowledgement is a testimony to our groundbreaking approach. Finally, organizations have the ability to tackle excessive network access and minimize their risks with the click of a button, by allowing users and machines to only access what they need, and nothing more.”

According to the report, “Attackers are getting more sophisticated. Originally it was files that got infected with viruses, then individual machines got infected with trojans and backdoors. Now attackers use a variety of techniques to get into an organization and move between machines before triggering the attack. Therefore, it is important not only to protect the individual endpoints, but also to provide minimal access and detect threat actors when they enter your organization.”

Zero Networks launched the Zero Networks Access Orchestrator earlier this year to give organizations the ability to shut down excessive network access that gives threat actors free reign of the network. Zero Networks automatically defines, enforces and adapts user- and machine-level network access policies to enable organizations to achieve a continuous least privilege networking stance throughout their environment. Zero Networks’ unique self-service approach ensures security remains in force to prevent devastating lateral movement, VPN infiltration, privileged account takeovers, zero-day attacks, ransomware and malware spread. With the Access Orchestrator, network access is restricted to only what is needed with the ability for users to make new or rare connections via a simple, yet strong 2-step verification process that requires no IT intervention.
