We’re excited to announce that the new Gartner Magic Quadrant for Unified Threat Management* is out, and Sophos is positioned in the Leaders Quadrant for the fifth year running.
We continue to be one of only three vendors in the Leaders Quadrant. And we think that says a lot about our standing in the eyes of customers, partners and industry analysts.
The Magic Quadrant is based on an assessment of a company’s ability to execute and completeness of vision.
Our strategy for the mid-market and our channel is clearly working very well as we deliver on our promise to make security simple with unique innovations that make our UTM products easy to deploy, manage and use. As a result, more and more partners and customers are turning to Sophos for their next firewall and UTM. In fact, the momentum in our growth is outstanding – more than triple the industry growth rate.
With the launch of our new and innovative XG Firewall and Synchronized Security we are also delivering on our vision for the future of IT Security where security components work better together to improve protection and respond to incidents. And with more and more IT infrastructure moving to the cloud, our leadership in protecting IaaS further reinforces our ability to anticipate important trends impacting your business and ensure your network is secure everywhere.
As the only IT security company to be positioned as a Leader across both Unified Threat Management* and Endpoint Protection Platforms** – we think our complete security offerings uniquely position us to deliver on the next generation of protection – Synchronized Security.
