Sophos Emerges as a Leader in the 2012 Magic Quadrant for Mobile Data Protection

Gartner, Inc has positioned Sophos, IT security and data protection firm, in the "Leaders" quadrant of its latest "Magic Quadrant for Mobile Data Protection." The quadrant is based on an assessment of a company's ability to execute and completeness of vision.

Sophos continues to strengthen its market-leading data protection and mobile offerings, and earlier this year introduced the latest versions of Sophos Safeguard Enterprise and Sophos Mobile Control. With the industry's first enterprise cloud encryption capabilities, Sophos Safeguard protects critical data in public, private and hybrid cloud environments. Safeguard automatically encrypts files uploaded to the cloud from any managed endpoint, quickly and easily, allowing secure files access from anywhere. More importantly, Safeguard ensures that all files remain encrypted regardless if copied or moved to another drive, network or device.

With these innovations, Sophos has differentiated itself from vendors offering traditional data protection that merely encrypt hard drives. With its advanced data protection, Sophos protects relevant enterprise data wherever it is being stored. 

As stated in the report, "Gartner clients know that data leakage can cost them money and their reputations, and eventually most companies will make MDP investments, whether they are small or large enterprises, or bound by compliance rules or not. They will make those purchases faster when the solutions are easy to understand and manage, easy to use, and priced affordably."
