CoSoSys Recognized in the 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Data Loss Prevention
We are very happy to let you know that we have been included in the February 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Data Loss Prevention. As new entrants, we are proud to be positioned the furthest in the Niche Players quadrant.
Vendors have been evaluated based on the ability to execute and the completeness of vision. These two dimensions include several criteria like product or service, overall viability, sales execution/pricing, market execution, customer experience, innovation, and other business and technical aspects. All criteria and their weight are detailed in the report.
We believe one of the factors for our inclusion by Gartner was our ability to help organizations protect data against leakages and theft on Windows, macOS, and Linux, with support for printers, terminal servers and other virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) thin clients. We also think that a big contribution for the inclusion was our intuitive and easy to use DLP product as well as great customer service.
Endpoint Protector’s user-friendly management console is a high priority for us as part of our efforts to alleviate IT Administrators’ job to secure data, which is difficult enough. Also, multiplatform support is a cornerstone of our product development, wanting to offer businesses the foundation to protect confidential data against leakage and theft on all workstations and avoid loopholes.
Besides the Magic Quadrant positioning with strengths and cautions for each vendor, the report also contains interesting insights about the DLP market, how it will evolve, what are the main adoption drivers, and how DLP should be approached as technology and strategy.
For SMBs and enterprises out there that haven’t adopted DLP and still consider it a hassle or too great to be true, just know that options have diversified in the last few years. DLP capabilities have become stronger and less intrusive and, regardless of your infrastructure, objectives, resources, etc., you have where to choose from, with a wide spectrum of implementation formats, dedicated DLP products, integrated DLP and different models like SaaS, MSPs, and others. All that it’s left is to develop and nurture a DLP mindset.
