Gartner has again placed Sophos as a leader on the protection platform Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection. This is the 11th time in a row that Sophos has been placed at the top.
“We believe our top placement is driven by strong endpoint protection, ease of use in endpoint detection and response to real world (EDR), as well as from the Sophos Central integration platform, ”said a Sophos statement.
"We believe that Gartner recognized Sophos for its proven work in" stopping "ransomware, a deep learning technology that prevents malware and anti-exploit technology. These are some of the technology sets available in Intercept X. ”
"Recent information on ransomware payments of millions of dollars and GDPR fines shows that IT managers are still not implementing protection needed to prevent cyber attacks", Sophos product manager Dan Schiappa adds.
"This is partly due to the fact that they are flooded with threats coming from all directions and in some cases cybercriminals use multiple methods and beneficial payloads along a single chain of attack. "
“We believe that Gartner's recognition underlines how important this endpoint is to any organization's security strategy. In our view, Gartner's placement of Sophos 11 at the top shows that Sophos is constantly innovating on cyberspace. This includes its development EDR for endpoints and servers for advanced threat investigations. ”
Sophos has also made various promotions to its team Asian and Japan (APJ). Jon Fox was appointed as channel manager for APJ. Natasha Lambert has been promoted to Fox's previous role as channel manager, Australia and New Zealand (A / NZ), while Sonia Chamberlain has taken over the role of distribution manager and SMB, A / NZ, in Lambert's previous position.
