Kaspersky Lab Recognized in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Mobile Device Management Software
Woburn, MA – June 13,
Kaspersky Lab today announced that it has been recognized in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Mobile
Device Management Software*. Kaspersky lab was one of 18 software providers –
out of more than 100 which were evaluated –that meet the technical and business
requirements for inclusion in this Magic Quadrant.
Gartner analysts evaluate technology providers on
their ability to execute and their completeness of vision. ‘Ability to execute’ reflects the quality and efficacy of the processes,
systems, methods or procedures that enable IT provider performance to be
competitive, efficient and effective, and to positively affect revenue,
retention and reputation.
‘Completeness of Vision’ reflects the ability to
convincingly articulate logical statements about current and future market
direction, innovation, customer needs, and competitive forces, as well as how
they map to the Gartner position.
Kaspersky Lab’s main mobile device management (MDM)
product - Kaspersky Security for Mobile - was released in 2012. It integrates essential
mobile endpoint security technologies and efficient mobile device management
capabilities to make it easier to protect mobile devices against viruses,
spyware, Trojans, worms, bots and a wide range of other threats. Additional
security technologies – including powerful encryption and anti-theft features –
add further layers of protection for precious business data.
Quotes: Alexander Erofeev, Chief Marketing Officer, Kaspersky Lab “We are very pleased to join Gartner’s Magic Quadrant
for MDM Software. We believe this confirms the high quality of the MDM
solutions we provide to our corporate clients all over the world. Our emphasis
on MDM and its integration into our corporate platform is part of our strategy
to always keep abreast of rapidly changing corporate environments. Today
companies have to identify, secure and manage mobile devices containing
corporate data, just as they do with endpoints. And we are working hard to
provide them with the best quality solutions in both of these categories.”
