We are thrilled to announce that for the 12th consecutive report, Sophos has been named a “Leader” in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms (EPP).
We are confident our placement is due to the combination of advanced protection, and broad endpoint detection and response (EDR) threat hunting and IT operations capabilities that we deliver.
In addition to a proven track record of stopping ransomware attacks and advanced threats, recent enhancements to EDR capabilities in Sophos Intercept X mean that organizations can use powerful SQL queries to answer critical IT operations and threat hunting questions. Pre-written queries with full customization and the ability to craft queries from scratch are included to support all use cases.
We continue to invest in both our protection and EDR capabilities, with multiple releases deployed over the past year. We recently announced Sophos XDR, which extends EDR visibility beyond endpoints and servers.
