SAN CARLOS, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 7, 2014) - Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: CHKP), the worldwide leader in securing the Internet, today announced it has been positioned in the Leaders Quadrant of Gartner's recent Magic Quadrant for Mobile Data Protection (MDP)1. This is the eighth consecutive year Check Point has been named a Leader.

The growing mobile movement including Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), mobile applications, and cloud services requires organizations to be vigilant in protecting and implementing secure access to corporate information, networks, and applications on-the-go. Check Point delivers industry-leading Mobile Data Protection that emphasizes a simple user experience, reliability, and maximum security across a wide breadth of devices. The company will soon share an exciting next-generation mobile security solution, bringing to market new and innovative safeguards to business information on mobile devices.

"Recent data breaches highlight the immeasurable harm data leakage can cause in the wrong hands. Check Point is committed to providing mobile data protection products that prevent both accidental data loss and access of stolen data through targeted attacks," said Marie Hattar, chief marketing officer at Check Point Software Technologies. "We believe our continued placement in the Leaders Quadrant reinforces the company's dedication to providing our customers with best-in-class solutions to encrypt company data and secure mobile devices."

According to Gartner, "Leaders have products that work well for Gartner clients in small and large deployments. They have long-term road maps that follow and/or influence Gartner's vision of the developing needs of buyers in the market. Leaders make their competitors' sales staffs nervous and force competitors' technical staffs to follow their lead. Their MDP products are well-known to clients and are frequently found on RFP shortlists."
