Sophos Cited as a Leader in New Endpoint Security Report
BOSTON, MA, Jan 09, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Sophos today announced that it has been positioned as a Leader in
Forrester Research, Inc.'s new Client Security report, The Forrester
Wave(TM): Endpoint Security, Q1 2013, a comprehensive overview of the
endpoint protection vendor landscape. Forrester said that Sophos
"delivers strong security capabilities," and that its "anti-malware
product has one of the best malware detection rates on the market
today and is well-reviewed in third-party studies."
Among its strengths, Sophos was recognized for offering powerful
threat protection capabilities and was recommended for consideration
by "organizations that need to strengthen their endpoint protection,
as well as those that have a sizable consumer endpoint population."
Sophos was noted for its support for mobile device management and
Mac, "which is becoming an increasingly important capability for
enterprise environments." According to the report, "the endpoint
security market is evolving from AV-only to one that favors multiple
functions in an integrated suite... from a single console." Sophos'
Complete Security Suite protects users everywhere -- from their
network to their servers, endpoints and mobile devices. In
particular, the forthcoming Sophos EndUser Protection license
includes mobile device management as well as anti-malware,
encryption, web filtering and patch assessment -- everything that IT
needs to enable use of mobile devices, smartphones and tablets, stop
malware and protect data.
"We are delighted to see Forrester recognize the strength of our
endpoint protection. We agree with Forrester's assertion that
'endpoints are where the perimeter is,'" said John Shaw, vice
president, product management, Sophos. "Our goal is to provide our
customers with the best possible protection, with simple and
effective management, for all the devices used by their end users --
whether they are corporate-managed or personal, and whether they are
Windows, Linux, Mac, Android or iOS."
