Abingdon, UK, January 10, 2012 – Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of secure content and threat management solutions, has been named a "Leader" in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms* for the second year in a row. Kaspersky Lab believes it has cemented its status as a provider of endpoint protection platforms with outstanding results for both the ‘completeness of vision’ and “ability to execute” categories.
The Gartner Magic Quadrant is an influential benchmark for companies seeking to evaluate IT security vendors and products due to its complex analysis of a wide range of endpoint protection platforms. Enterprises all over the world pay close attention to its findings when making purchase decisions. This Magic Quadrant is based on criteria in two categories: completeness of vision and ability to execute. Completeness of vision reflects the vendor's standing on innovation, and whether the vendor drives or follows the endpoint protection market. Ability to execute summarises factors such as the vendor's financial viability, market responsiveness, product development, sales channels and customer base in the endpoint protection segment.
Eugene Kaspersky, Chairman and CEO, Kaspersky Lab comments: “We are very pleased to be placed among the ‘Leaders’ in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for the second year running. It’s very important for us to receive such a positive affirmation from this leading IT market researcher. I believe our position in the Magic Quadrant confirms the high quality of the products and solutions we provide to our corporate clients all over the world.
