Sophos announced it has been positioned in the “Leaders” quadrant of Gartner, Inc’s 20131Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms.” The quadrant is based on an assessment of a company’s ability to execute and completeness of vision.

According to the report, “the endpoint protection platform provides a collection of security utilities to protect PCs and tablets. Vendors in this market compete on the quality of their protection capabilities, the depth and breadth of features, and the ease of administration.”

In 2012, Sophos added the award-winning functionality of Sophos Endpoint Protection to its Unified Threat Management (UTM) solution, becoming the first company to offer protection for endpoints and the gateway from a single console. Sophos Endpoint Protection is also a key component of the company’s Complete Security Suite, which combines functions like endpoint, data and web and email protection, along with mobile device management (MDM) and protection for Microsoft Exchange and SharePoint.

Gartner also states that “In particular, mobile data protection is the leading complement to EPP and purchasing decisions regarding the two products are increasingly made together. For most organizations, selecting a mobile data protection system from their incumbent EPP vendors will meet their requirements.”

Sophos was also positioned as a “Leader” in the 2012 Magic Quadrant for Mobile Data Protection and the 2012 Magic Quadrant for Unified Threat Management.
