Analyst firm Gartner has published its latest Magic Quadrant, plotting where it believes different security companies to be when it comes to protecting endpoints on a kind-of battenberg cake. When they say ‘endpoint’ they are referring to what much of the rest of the world calls a ‘computer’, by the way.

Which means it’s time for a shameless blog post promoting Sophos. :)

The top right corner of Gartner’s magic quadrant is the sweet spot, and it’s great to see Sophos consolidate its position there. As you can probably imagine, a lot of the marketroids are very pleased with this – and the engineers and guys and gals in the labs deserve hearty congratulations for such a positive placement.

You can download the full Gartner Magic Quadrant report from our website (sorry, you may need to fill out a form).
