Dubai, UAE – September 28, 2013 – Sophos today announced it is once again positioned in the “Leaders” quadrant of Gartner, Inc’s 2013 "Magic Quadrant for Mobile Data Protection.” The quadrant is based on an assessment of a company’s market understanding, strategy and completeness of vision within the Mobile Data Protection (MDP) industry. MDP products are defined as products that protect access to secure data on storage systems in notebooks, removable media, desktops and servers. Buyers want common protection policies across multiple platforms, minimal support costs and proof of protection.

According to Gartner, Leaders are at the forefront of making and selling mobile data protection products that are built for enterprise business environments. The requirements necessary for leadership include a long-term road map that follows and/or influence Gartner, Inc’s vision of the developing needs of buyers in the market. Vendors in this quadrant lead the market by making 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.

“To be positioned as a leader for the past eight years is a testament to our product teams who continue to deliver innovative encryption and data protection products,” said John Shaw, Vice President for end user security products at Sophos. “An aggressive roadmap, coupled with our plans to make it even simpler for small and medium sized businesses to protect their data by encrypting drives, files, cloud storage and mobile files invisibly, positions us for even more success in the months and years ahead.”

Sophos delivers leading solutions to help organizations protect critical assets. Sophos SafeGuard Enterprise protects data on desktops, laptops, removable media, file shares and to the cloud with proven, standards-based encryption –fully managed from one central console. Sophos also recently announced Sophos Mobile Control 3.5, the latest version of its award-winning mobile device management (MDM) solution, which now also supports iOS7. Available both on-premise and as-a-service, Sophos Mobile Control 3.5 makes it simple for small and mid-market organizations to secure, monitor and control mobile devices.

Sophos was also positioned as a “Leader” in Gartner, Inc’s “2013 Magic Quadrant for Unified Threat Management.”
