Why we think Sophos is a Magic Quadrant Visionary in enterprise mobility management

We’re honored to be recognized for the second year in a row as a Visionary in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Mobility Management Suites (EMM).* As one of just 12 vendors in this year’s Magic Quadrant, we think that says a lot about our understanding of the rapidly evolving mobility landscape.

Businesses of all sizes need an innovative mobile solution like Sophos Mobile Control (SMC) that keeps up with the rapid adoption of new devices and applications, and helps businesses protect their corporate data while empowering employees. This is what makes Sophos attractive to small and mid-sized enterprises – and has resulted in a 50% increase in SMC installations in the past year.

We believe we’re a Magic Quadrant Visionary for these five simple reasons:

  • Security as a priority: With SMC, you get pragmatic mobile management solutions with security as a priority.
  • Encryption everywhere: From individual files, on devices and into the cloud, your corporate data is always encrypted.
  • Protection from web and email threats: Built-in anti-malware and web protection for Android devices, plus protection against phishing and spam, keep your users safe from threats.
  • Network access control: You can protect your network from compromised devices and reduce the risk of data breaches by integrating SMC with our UTM.
  • Complete security made simple: Sophos offers complete security for all your devices and platforms – and we’re the only IT security company that’s a Leader across three key areas of security: Unified Threat Management (UTM)Mobile Data Protection and Endpoint Protection Platforms.**

We were also recognized by Forrester for offering “strong data, app, OS, and network protection features” in the EMM space in a recent Forrester Market Update.***
