Sophos is a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for UTM – here’s 5 reasons why

gartner-magic-quadrant-150Gartner has named Sophos to its Leaders Quadrant in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Unified Threat Management for the third year in a row. We think it’s a real privilege to receive recognition from Gartner.

The momentum in our UTM business is truly exciting. In the past year we’ve released our SG Series appliances, the fastest UTM devices we’ve ever produced. And our growth in the market is astonishing.

The Magic Quadrant is based on an assessment of a company’s ability to execute and completeness of vision. We believe we’re a Leader once again for these five simple reasons.

  1. We keep it simple. Sophos UTM is super easy to deploy, manage, and use!
  2. You get lightning speed. Our SG Series appliances are engineered for speed.
  3. Everything’s on one box. You get all the latest next-gen firewall features plus much more. No need to buy extra hardware.
  4. Reporting’s built in. Detailed reports come as standard, stored locally on the built-in hard drive.
  5. And we’re constantly innovating. We’re always enhancing our technology and have an outstanding roadmap.

Plus, we’ve expanded the UTM protection we offer with our new cloud-based sandboxing, and integrated mobile device management and really simple-to-use email encryption.

Smaller businesses need effective security that is easy to use — and that’s exactly what we provide. It’s why we’re seeing more and more partners and customers switching to Sophos for their UTM and next-gen firewall needs.

Sophos offers complete security for all your devices and platforms, and we’re the only IT security company to be positioned as a Leader across three key areas of security: Unified Threat Management (UTM), Mobile Data Protection and Endpoint Protection Platforms.

Plus, we’re a Visionary in the Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Mobility Management.
