We’re excited to announce that Gartner has named Sophos a Leader in the UTM Magic Quadrant for 2017. This marks our sixth year in a row, and again this year, we are one of only three vendors in the Leaders Quadrant. We believe this 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 is clearly working very well as we deliver on our promise to make security more effective and simpler to manage through unique innovations in XG Firewall like Synchronized Security. By sharing telemetry with endpoints on the network, XG Firewall can instantly identify compromised systems and automatically isolate them or limit access, making it the only firewall to incorporate system health into firewall rules.
Recent releases of XG Firewall have continued to provide innovations in protection from unknown threats and ease-of-use while also continuing to advance what’s possible with Synchronized Security by adding Security Heartbeat support for servers and unmanaged endpoints. And we’re just getting started. New breakthroughs in Synchronized Security are coming to XG Firewall very soon in v17 and beyond.
Already, thousands of Sophos customers around the world are enjoying the added visibility, protection and automated response that Synchronized Security provides.
As the only IT security company to be positioned as a Leader across both Unified Threat Management* and Endpoint Protection Platforms** – we believe we are uniquely positioned to deliver on this next generation of Synchronized Security.
