Gartner names Sophos a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms

Gartner Magic QuadrantWe’re delighted that Gartner Inc. has positioned us as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms,* for the ninth consecutive year.

It’s great to read in the report about the various integrated technology capabilities required for a successful endpoint protection platform. We all know that relying on a single capability in security is risky – signature technology is a great example.

By their very nature, signatures can only detect known threats, so it’s vital for any endpoint protection platform to deliver multiple capabilities to offer the best possible protection.

At Sophos, our next-generation technology is embedded within our endpoint protection solution. The Sophos System Protector works to connect all those capabilities – such as malicious traffic detection, download reputation, behavior analytics and pre-execution file analysis – making decisions in context to give you the best endpoint protection.

Our Security Heartbeat technology allows the network and the endpoint to talk to each other and share that contextual information. So your security is based on an understanding of not only what is happening on the endpoint, but also what’s happening across the whole network.

We believe it’s next-generation technologies like these that make us a leader.

We take enormous pride in protecting our customers from ever changing threats. And we’re delighted that Gartner once again recognizes us as a leader.
