Analyst Firm’s Criteria Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute
SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 15, 2010 - McAfee, Inc. (NYSE:MFE), today announced that research firm Gartner, Inc. has placed the company in the leaders quadrant in its “Magic Quadrant for Content-Aware Data Loss Prevention,” as published on June 2, 2010.
According to Gartner, vendors who appear in the leader’s quadrant “have demonstrated good understanding of client needs and offer comprehensive capabilities in all three functional areas — network, discovery and endpoint — directly or through well-established partnerships and tight integration. They offer aggressive road maps, and they will need to execute on those road maps, fully incorporate enhanced features currently in development and address evolving market needs to remain in the Leaders quadrant.”
“Our customers and their business-sensitive data need monitoring and protection as the threat landscape continues to evolve. McAfee delivers cost-effective, intuitive data discovery and features that not only protect the business, but enable it,” said Marc Olesen, senior vice president & general manager of Content Security at McAfee. “Cost and complexity have always been, and will continue to be, a major concern for organizations. McAfee is uniquely positioned to continue driving data loss protection technology into and across corporate security infrastructure, including agents, web, mail, and cloud offerings to simultaneously drive simplicity while increasing capability and scale beyond the enterprise.”
