Sophos–a global leader in network and endpoint security–has once again been named positioned in the “Leaders” quadrant of Gartner Inc.’s Magic Quadrant for Unified Threat Management (SMB Multifunction Firewalls) for September 2018. It is the only security company that was placed consistently in the leader quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms and Unified Threat Management.
One recent review of the Sophos UTM on the Gartner Peer Insights review site stated, “Sophos product capabilities fit our requirements and reduced the number of appliances performing different tasks from 4 to 1. The Sophos UTM provides firewall, web filtering, wireless AP management, remote site management, email encryption, AV / SPAM protection all in one appliance. It was a relatively painless implementation with an HA and fail-over between sites configuration. Sophos customer support was very helpful throughout the implementation.”
“Introducing innovative technologies such as deep learning in the sandbox and synchronized security enables Sophos to stay ahead of the evolving threat landscape,” commented Dan Schiappa, senior vice president and general manager of Products at Sophos. “We develop our cybersecurity products to work better together as a system, enabling our defenses to be as coordinated as sophisticated attacks such as
the persistent SamSam ransomware . We believe that the continued placement of Sophos in the Leader quadrant in both the Endpoint Protection Platform and UTM Magic Quadrant reports, allows our customers to be confident that they are getting best of breed protection and a predictive, integrated solution that can detect, analyze, and automatically respond to even unknown threats.”
