Reflex Security Positioned in Visionaries Quadrant in Influential Network Intrusion Prevention Systems Appliances Magic Quadrant

Evaluation of Reflex Security Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

ATLANTA, GA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 16, 2007 -- Gartner, Inc., a leading provider of research and analysis about the global information technology industry, recently positioned Reflex Security ( in the "Visionaries" Quadrant in its latest Magic Quadrant for Network Intrusion Prevention Systems Appliances, 2H06 (1).

The annual Gartner report is an analysis tool for organizations evaluating vendors in the Network Intrusion Prevention Systems Appliance marketplace. Gartner selects "Visionaries" as companies that they have concluded "invest in the leading/bleeding-edge features that will be significant in the next generation of products and give buyers early access to improved security and management. Visionaries can affect the course of technological developments in the market, but they lack the execution skills to outmaneuver challengers and leaders."

Reflex Security has introduced many innovative network security solutions in the past year. Augmenting its product line of award-winning IPS appliances was Reflex's rollout of the networking industry's first scalable 10 Gigabit IPS, first virtualized intrusion prevention for virtualization, and high availability/instant fail over for inline intrusion prevention.

"IT managers are faced with unprecedented challenges to balance performance, availability, and compliance, with an imperative for enterprise-wide security," said Jim Watson, CEO of Reflex Security. "We believe Gartner's positioning of Reflex Security in the 'Visionaries' quadrant in its Magic Quadrant is confirmation of our continuing delivery of innovative and robust IPS solutions, combined with our commitment to meet customers' needs for comprehensive, best-of-breed security."
