Endpoint protection recognition for Sophos.

Sophos : 03 January, 2008  (Company News)
Gartner report places Sophos in the magic quadrant for endpoint protection, recognising the contribution made by the firm in 2007 towards improved data protection.
IT security and control firm Sophos has been positioned by Gartner in the leaders quadrant in the 2007 Endpoint Protection Platforms Magic Quadrant report.

Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms is based on an assessment of a company's ability to execute and completeness of vision. According to Gartner, 'Leaders demonstrate balanced progress and effort in all execution and vision categories. Their actions raise the competitive bar for all products in the market, and they can change the course of the industry.'

"We believe that the old order is changing as companies demand more from what used to be an anti-virus budget," said Steve Munford, CEO of Sophos. "Our advanced integration and reduced administration mean it takes less to do more, and that complex principles like Network Access Control are easily harnessed and made accessible to the mainstream market."

The report observes that 'Point products for antivirus, antispyware, personal firewalls, and Host Based Intrusion Prevention (HIPS) are rapidly being replaced by suites with a centralised and extensible management framework. The management and reporting capability of EPP (Endpoint Protection Platforms) suites is a substantial differentiator especially in large enterprise. A modular architecture that allows selective configuration based on security requirements and device location is also critical.'
