Gartner names Sophos a Magic Quadrant Leader for Endpoint Protection

logo_100x100_gartnerFor the sixth consecutive year, Gartner has positioned Sophos as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms. Sophos is the only IT security company that’s a Leader in the Magic Quadrants for Unified Threat Management (UTM)Mobile Data Protection and Endpoint Protection Platforms.

We believe that we’re a Leader once again because we continue to innovate how we deliver endpoint protection: from integrating UTM and endpoint into a single console—to including mobile device management (MDM) and endpoint as a single, per-user license—and offering Sophos Cloud, providing Security Made Simple that’s painless to deploy and easy to manage. Our endpoint protection covers end users, wherever they are and whatever devices they use, in a way that’s fast, effective, and easy.

The Magic Quadrant is based on Gartner’s assessment of a company’s ability to execute and completeness of vision. The report gives you independent research into the endpoint protection market, explains what’s happening in this segment of the security industry, and offers strengths and cautions for each of the vendors.
