Gartner Positions Sophos as a Magic Quadrant Leader in Mobile Data Protection for Sixth Consecutive Year

OXFORD, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Sep 15, 2014) - Sophos today announced that it has been positioned in the Leaders quadrant of Gartner, Inc.'s September 8, 2014 Magic Quadrant for Mobile Data Protection. This is the sixth consecutive year Sophos has been recognized for its leadership in the Mobile Data Protection (MDP) space.

"We feel it's truly gratifying to see that for six years in a row our excellence in encryption has been recognized by Gartner," said Dan Schiappa, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Enduser Protection Group, Sophos. "Our Mantra is about making security simple, across all devices, and all the ways that users share information, and freeing up businesses to get on with what they actually do best."

We believe Sophos' leadership position in the security space is further highlighted as it combines data protection with mobile controls for organizations, enabling ever-growing numbers of BYOD employees to experience the productivity benefits without sacrificing organizational security. We further believe this broad security industry leadership is reinforced by Sophos' inclusion in the Leader quadrant of Gartner's August 7, 2014 Magic Quadrant for Unified Threat Management. Indeed, Sophos is the only vendor to appear as a Leader in three Gartner Magic Quadrants: MDP; Endpoint Protection published January 8, 2014 and UTM.
