Sophos Secures 14th Consecutive Leader Position in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms

Jan 16, 2024 Mark

Jan 16, 2024: Sophos, a leading player in cybersecurity services, has once again been recognized as a Leader in the 2023 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms (EPP). This marks the 14th consecutive time that Sophos has achieved Leader status in the renowned Gartner report.

Raja Patel, Chief Product Officer at Sophos, attributes this consistent recognition to the company’s commitment to innovation in protection-first technologies. Patel stated, “Security vendors cannot stay static. There’s too much at stake. Adversaries will always look for the easiest and newest ways to avoid detection or take advantage of misconfigurations and other security gaps to reach their endgame. That’s why we always prioritize adaptive and preventative EPP defenses for our customers.”

Sophos Intercept X, the company’s flagship EPP solution, is at the forefront of this recognition. Intercept X defends over 300,000 organizations from ransomware, software vulnerabilities, and other modern cyber threats. Leveraging deep learning artificial intelligence (AI), Sophos Intercept X incorporates the industry-first Adaptive Attack Protection. This feature automatically disrupts ongoing attacks, dynamically fortifying defenses to provide responders with valuable additional time.

The Intercept X solution includes the Account Health Check capability, identifying security posture drift and misconfigurations. Users can remediate these issues with a single click. Moreover, Sophos Intercept X with Extended Detection and Response (XDR) integrates telemetry sources from numerous technology and security providers, streamlining security operations, analyst workflow, and case management.

Sophos has received additional accolades this year, being named a Customers’ Choice in the Gartner Peer Insights Voice of the Customer for Endpoint Protection Platforms (EPP) report. Notably, Sophos was the sole vendor recognized as a Customer’s Choice across EPP, managed detection and response (MDR), network firewalls, and mobile threat defense. Sophos MDR, the most reviewed MDR solution on Gartner Peer Insights and G2, is the only MDR service deliverable across end users’ existing third-party security deployments and Sophos offerings.

Managed in the cloud-native Sophos Central platform, Sophos’ solutions are part of the Sophos Adaptive Cybersecurity Ecosystem. This ecosystem enables automatic and synchronized responses to active threats by collecting, correlating, and enriching security data with additional context. The platform is further enhanced by Sophos X-Ops’ real-time and historical threat intelligence and expertise, ensuring robust cybersecurity for organizations.
