Magic Endpoint Protection praise not the end for Sophos

“We’re continuing to build on our reputation for producing effective, simple-to-use security solutions by introducing next-generation technology that protects customers even better."

Sophos has been positioned in the “Leaders” quadrant of Gartner’s “Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms” for the eighth consecutive year.

Gartner identifies four primary stages in the security lifecycle: setting policy, prevention, detection and remediation, and evaluated EPP vendors based on whether the features their solutions offer address these four stages.

According to the report, “the rise of the targeted attack is shredding what is left of the anti-malware market's stubborn commitment to reactive protection techniques.

"Improving the malware signature distribution system or adapting behaviour detection to account for the latest attack styles will not improve the effectiveness rates against targeted attacks ... to be successful going forward, EPP solutions must be more proactive and focus on the entire security life cycle.”

Sophos believes the company’s Project Galileo product strategy of integrating next-generation enduser, server and network protection technologies will further its leadership in this market.

“We’re continuing to build on our reputation for producing effective, simple-to-use security solutions by introducing next-generation technology that protects customers even better,” says Dan Schiappa, SVP and GM, Sophos Enduser Security Group.

“We believe Gartner’s continued placement of Sophos in the Leaders quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms is validation of our innovative strategy and our ability to deliver on that strategy.”

Schiappa says Sophos "continues to innovate" on the endpoint and, more broadly, in protection of the entire end user, across devices and platforms.

The company also announced the launch of Next-Generation Enduser Protection aimed at defending customers from sophisticated threats such as Vawtrak, an effective and widespread botnet recently profiled by SophosLabs.

“Next-Generation Enduser Protection is where the industry needs to head,” Schiappa adds.

“And Sophos is one of a very few companies worldwide that have the breadth of solutions and the depth of knowledge and expertise to be able to drive this massive and necessary evolution in our industry.”
