McAfee Positioned by Gartner in Leaders Quadrant of ‘Secure Web Gateway’ Report

McAfee announced today it has been positioned by research and advisory firm Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders Quadrant of the “Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateway” report. The report, published May 25, 2011, evaluates a total of 19 vendors.

Gartner said it chooses leaders who are categorized as “high-momentum vendors” based on sales and “mind-share” growth who have achieved established track records in web gateway security. The 2011 report states that anti-malware capabilities should be the most critical criterion in evaluating secure web gateways, although bidirectional protection-blocking inbound malware and analyzing outbound traffic to detect compromised endpoints-is also critical.

“McAfee’s success in web gateway security is due to our ability to provide the most-advanced preemptive technologies running flexibly across appliances, virtual appliances and cloud-based offerings, delivering customers a high return on their investment,” said Marc Olesen, senior vice president and general manager, content and cloud security, McAfee. “We continue to execute and deliver on our web security vision, providing customers with security, compliance and increased productivity. We enable access to today’s social networking and other dynamic business and productivity-enhancing web applications.”
