Kaspersky Lab today announced that it has been positioned in the "Leaders" quadrant of the 2016 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms. The evaluation was based on the criteria for both “completeness of vision” and “ability to execute”. This is the fifth year in a row the company has received a leadership position from Gartner.
We believe Kaspersky Lab’s global brand recognition, growing market share, strong influence within the IT security industry, and recognition as a Leader by Gartner further positions the company as a top provider of best-in-class endpoint protection solutions. Kaspersky Lab’s comprehensive portfolio encompasses solutions to protect a wide range of customers from all types of cyberthreats, and the company scored more top-three places than any other vendor in independent testing throughout 2015. Powered by industry-leading threat intelligence, Kaspersky Lab is the security technology solutions choice for 400 million users and 270,000 corporate clients.
“We are pleased to remain a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for the fifth time in a row. We will continue to deliver the industry's best multi-layered protection by transforming our global cybersecurity intelligence into technologies that address a wide range of threats, including known, unknown and the most advanced ones,” commented Nikita Shvetsov, Chief Technology Officer at Kaspersky Lab. “The wealth of expertise we have gained through years of combating major IT threats has allowed us to develop endpoint security solutions which unite ease of management with effective protection to meet our clients’ most pressing needs.”
