High appraisal for secure web gateway in Gartner report

Aladdin Knowledge Systems : 25 September, 2008  (New Product)
Secure Web Gateway from Aladdin Knowledge Systems gains recognition from Gartner for execution, pricing and quality
Aladdin Knowledge Systems has announced that Aladdin has been positioned in the visionaries quadrant in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateway by Peter Firstbrook and Lawrence Orens, published September 11, 20081.

The Gartner report provides in-depth analysis of the Secure Web Gateway (SWG) market and evaluate vendors on their ability to execute, including viability, pricing, and product quality, as well as completeness of their vision, such as sales and marketing strategies.

"Having a malware-filtering capability is critical as the Internet and Web become the major infection channels. Almost all organizations that implemented a bidirectional malware-filtering SWG found numerous adware, spyware and other malicious content on their networks," the Gartner report stated.

Aladdin's strength in malware filtering is demonstrated by Aladdin eSafe's real-time, intelligent inspection capabilities. To combat the sophisticated cybercriminals targeting legitimate Web sites and Web 2.0 applications, Aladdin eSafe scans all Web traffic regardless of port, detecting and removing malware at zero hour without over-blocking legitimate content or sacrificing performance.

Aladdin eSafe includes an extensive list of unique application controls in more than 500 categories, numerous deployment options, and a wide platform offering. With a global presence, a diverse portfolio of customers, innovative technologies and extensive intellectual property and patents, Aladdin eSafe continues to be well positioned for ongoing growth and success in the content security market.

"We are delighted that Aladdin eSafe is positioned within Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateway," said Tsion Gonen, vice president of the Content Security Business Unit at Aladdin Knowledge Systems. "In my opinion, Aladdin's placement in the Visionaries Quadrant confirms our strengths in technology innovation and our strategy in developing real-time, intelligent Web security solutions that enable organizations to protect information assets and enforce acceptable use policy."

According to the Gartner report, "Visionaries are distinguished by their technical and/or product innovations but have not yet achieved the record of execution in the SWG market to give them the high visibility of the leaders or those that lack the corporate resources of challengers. Expect state-of-the-art technology from the visionary vendors, but buyers should be wary of a strategic reliance on these vendors and should monitor the vendors' viability closely. Given the maturity of this market, visionaries represent good acquisition candidates. Challengers that may have neglected technology innovation and/or vendors in related markets are likely buyers of visionary vendors. Thus, these vendors represent a higher risk of business disruptions."

Recipient of numerous industry awards, Aladdin eSafe continues to experience strong business momentum on a global scale, which has resulted in significant growth in new customer acquisitions and strategic channel partner development.
