Woburn, MA - January 10, 2013 - 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”
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 summarizes factors such as the vendor's financial viability,
market responsiveness, product development, sales channels and customer base in
the endpoint protection segment.
Recognized by industry leaders and analysts, the
core advantages of Kaspersky Endpoint Security include its very rapid and accurate malware
detection and advanced HIPS features. The product’s manageability – thanks to Kaspersky Security Center’s comprehensive management console – and several well-integrated
internally developed features constantly enhance the company’s offering.
Kaspersky Lab provides
protection for over 300 million people and about 250,000 companies worldwide,
ranging from small and medium-sized businesses, to large commercial and
government organizations. The company’s product range meets all the key demands
