Arkoon, a leader in the security market (network, data and endpoint protections), distinguished itself again with StormShield’s performance in the Gartner Magic Quadrant.

The Magic Quadrant is an annual report delivered by Gartner, a leading consulting firm specialized in IT. Gartner evaluates software products on a variety of criteria such as security effectiveness, features, deployability and ease of use.

The latest Magic Quadrant, dated January 2nd, places Arkoon for the fifth consecutive year among visionaries in the EPP market (Endpoint Protection Platform). By 2017, the projection is that half of the user devices will access applications through these platforms and their security policies (Gartner 02.01.2013).

Jerome Robert, CMO at Arkoon said, “We are pleased to once again be positioned as Visionary in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant, a must-read reference for CIOs and CSOs. Each year, we invest a significant amount of resources in advancing our leadership in multiple areas of endpoint security. StormShield has all the qualities to emerge as the perfect response to the requirements  of securing computers on into the future.”
