Gartner acknowledges Sophos’ continued data protection leadership

gartner-tileAfter being recognized by Gartner as a leader in seven consecutive Magic Quadrants for Mobile Data Protection, we continue our success by being one of the vendors with the most comprehensive solution in the new Gartner report, Market Guide for Information-Centric Endpoint and Mobile Protection.*

This new report by John Girard of Gartner is the replacement for the now retired Gartner Magic Quadrant for Mobile Data Protection. It defines nine different methods for information-centric endpoint protection, ranging from basic device protection to comprehensive file-based protection methods.

Of the 18 representative companies discussed in the report, Sophos is one of only two companies that can provide a solution for every single method with Sophos SafeGuard and Sophos Mobile Control.

Sophos SafeGuard, with its always-on file-based Synchronized Encryption, will protect your files wherever they go, for example when shared across platforms, emailed, or uploaded to cloud-based storage. The secure container technology and personal information management (PIM) capabilities in Sophos Mobile Control provide secure collaboration everywhere, working across mobile devices without compromising security and preventing accidental data leakage.

We agree with Gartner that, considering that information is highly mobile in today’s world, data protection solutions can no longer be centered around full disk encryption but should instead account for the many ways that business information needs protection as it moves.
