Premier analyst firm Forrester Research, Inc. has named McAfee a leader in “The Forrester Wave™: Email Content Security, Q4 2012” as published on November 15, 2012. We consider this a testament to the strength, stability, flexibility, and effectiveness of McAfee’s email protection solutions.
What it takes to be named a Leader
As part of the assessment, Forrester examined past research, user need assessments, vendor and expert interviews, and a comprehensive set of 47 evaluation criteria. Leaders “are capable of addressing the unique needs of the largest of enterprise clients.”
McAfee Email Protection features strong DLP and reporting capabilities
Forrester placed particular focus in this Wave on advanced capabilities that differentiate vendor offerings in response to the threat and compliance landscape, which includes building more-robust data loss prevention (DLP).
“Advanced malware and loss of corporate intellectual property are growing problems that can have a dramatic negative impact on any organization,” said Pat Calhoun, senior vice president and general manager, McAfee Network Security. “I am pleased that McAfee Email Protection is being recognized as a leader in this Forrester Wave. We continue to improve the technology to address malware, spam, data loss, policy enforcement, and business continuity.”
McAfee delivers flexible solutions for email security
It is mentioned in the report that vendors are shifting their delivery models and as part of this, many firms increasingly prefer software-as-a-service (SaaS). McAfee Email Protection provides the ability to deploy email security in multiple form factors, including hardware appliances, virtual appliances, cloud-based, and blade servers. Customers have complete flexibility to use a combination, or switch between the solutions without any additional charge.
