Sophos Placed in the Leaders Quadrant of Gartner’s 2015 Mobile Data Protection Solutions Magic Quadrant for Seventh Consecutive Year
- OXFORD, UK – Oct. 13, 2015 – Sophos today announced that it has once again been positioned in the “Leaders” quadrant of Gartner, Inc.’s Oct. 8, 2015, "Magic Quadrant for Mobile Data Protection Solutions.” The report is based on an assessment of a company’s ability to execute and completeness of vision. Sophos has been placed in the Leaders quadrant since 2009, which we believe demonstrates a proven consistency in product delivery and a mature vision for the technology.
“We feel this continued recognition is a testament to the value we place on protecting data across all devices and environments,” commented Dan Schiappa, senior vice president and general manager, enduser security group at Sophos. “Our encryption everywhere philosophy, combined with our vision that security can be simple, drives us to develop security solutions that are both powerful and easy to use. We are enabling organizations of any size to implement next generation endpoint security technologies that work as a system to better protect their users and their business.”
Sophos is the only IT security company to be positioned as a Leader by Gartner in three security Magic Quadrant reports: December 22, 2014 Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms (EPP), the August 27, 2015 Magic Quadrant for Unified Threat Management (UTM) and once again, the October 8, 2015 Magic Quadrant for Mobile Data Protection (MDP). In June 2015, Sophos was placed in the Visionaries quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) Suites.
According to Gartner, the majority of buyers will select a vendor who can deliver both EPP and MDP. As noted in the October 8, 2015 report, Magic Quadrant for Mobile Data Protection Solutions, “A more natural combination is for buyers to select Endpoint Protect (EPP) and MDP from the same vendor, resulting in better pricing and fewer
- points of management and support. Some vendors are good at making this connection with their buyers and others are not, resulting in missed revenue. Gartner experience indicates that at least two-thirds of buyers will select EPP and MDP together if they are aware that a vendor sells both product sets. For additional information, see
