Sophos Positioned Once Again as a Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms

Sophos (LSE: SOPH), a global leader in network and endpoint security, today announced that Gartner, Inc., has once again positioned Sophos as a Leader in its Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms1. This is the 11th time in a row Sophos has been positioned as Leader.  

We believe our placement is driven by our strong endpoint protection, real-world endpoint detection and response (EDR) usability, as well as our unifying platform, Sophos Central. We believe Gartner recognized Sophos for our proven record at stopping ransomware, the deep learning technology that blocks never-seen-before malware, and our anti-exploit technology. These are some of the ensemble of technologies available in Intercept X.

“Recent awareness of million dollar ransomware payments and GDPR fines indicates that IT managers are still not putting in place the protection they need to prevent cyberattacks. This is in part because they are inundated with threats coming from all directions and, in some cases, cybercriminals are using multiple methods and payloads along a single attack chain,” said Dan Schiappa, chief product officer at Sophos. “We believe Gartner’s recognition underscores how critical this endpoint product is to every organization’s security strategy. In our opinion, Gartner’s placement of Sophos in the Leaders quadrant 11 times in a row also demonstrates how Sophos is constantly innovating cybersecurity. This includes the development of EDR for endpoints and servers for advanced threat investigations.”   

In addition to this industry recognition, Sophos recently achieved the following industry awards for Intercept X:

Highest security effectiveness and best value in NSS Labs 2019 Advanced Endpoint Protection Group Test
AAA rating for both Enterprise and SMB from SE Labs
#1 for Malware Protection and Exploit Protection from MRG Effitas
A complimentary copy of the Gartner Magic Quadrant Report for Endpoint Protection Platforms is available from Sophos.
