Gartner adjusts Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection

Gartner has reviewed its Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection and the results show security vendors Sophos and Kaspersky gaining traction.

According to Gartner, endpoint protection platforms continue to struggle to block typical malware threats and are even less effective when it comes to low-volume targeted attacks. The research company says that "a few vendors have started to provide proactive tools, such as vulnerability detection and application control, that reduce the attack surface.

Gartner adds that current prices from comparable offerings are down from the last Magic Quadrant but says that "vendors are substituting more-complete suite offerings with little or no increase in annual costs".

*In 2010, the enterprise market was still dominated by McAfee, Symantec and Trend Micro, which represents approximately 60 percent of the total enterprise market. Notably, however, the share of these dominant players is down considerably from 85 percent in 2007. These market leaders are losing market share to increased competition, primarily in the lower end of the market with less than 1,000 seats, but also making inroads in larger accounts. Sophos and Kaspersky Lab are the primary beneficiaries of this trend, and these vendors are improving mind share and market share in the enterprise market," says Gartner in its quadrant revision report.
