the company in the leaders quadrant in its "Magic Quadrant for Endpoint
Protection Platforms" published on Jan. 8, 2014. Gartner's research

Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms is based on
an assessment of a company's ability to execute and completeness of
vision. Leaders in this quadrant demonstrate balanced progress and
effort in all execution and vision categories. Their capabilities in
advanced malware protection, data protection and/or management features
raise the competitive bar for all products in the market, and they can
change the course of the industry.
The key ability-to-execute criteria used to evaluate vendors in 2013
were overall viability, market responsiveness and track record.
Additional factors included sales execution/pricing, market execution,
customer experience and operations. Gartner gauges a company's
completeness of vision by considering its market understanding and the
sum of the weighted offering (product) strategy score.
"New, complex threats are emerging daily and with the explosion of
devices in rapidly evolving IT environments, organizations must ensure
they're protected with comprehensive endpoint security," said Candace
Worley, senior vice president and general manager, endpoint security at
McAfee (News - Alert). "We feel McAfee's positioning as a leader in the Endpoint
