McAfee Positioned In The Leaders Quadrant For Secure Web Gateways In Gartner’s Magic Quadrant

McAfee today announced that leading research firm Gartner, Inc. has positioned the company in the leaders quadrant in its “Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateways” as published on May 28, 2013*. Gartner’s research examined leading companies offering Web gateway solutions that utilize URL filtering, malware detection and application control technology to protect organizations and enforce Internet policy compliance.

According to the report, “Leaders are high-momentum vendors (based on sales and mind share growth) with established track records in Web gateway security, as well as vision and business investments, indicating that they are well-positioned for the future. Leaders do not necessarily offer the best products and services for every customer project; however, they provide solutions that offer relatively lower risk.” In order to be included in the report,vendors must provide all three components of a secure web gateway: URL filtering, anti-malware protection and application control capabilities.

“Our leaders position in the Magic Quadrant confirms the McAfee approach to securing the Web,” said Pat Calhoun, general manager of the network security business unit at McAfee. “The McAfee Web Protection solution offers the advanced security, control and malware protection organizations need to take full advantage of the Web. Combined with the flexibility to have on premise or cloud-based Web protection with a single solution, McAfee Web Protection leads the way in lower total cost of ownership.”

McAfee Web Protection Gateway delivers comprehensive security for all aspects of Web traffic, regardless of location or device. For user-initiated Web requests, McAfee Web Gateway first enforces an organization’s Internet use policy. For all allowed traffic, it then uses multiple real-time techniques to analyze the nature and intent of all content and active code entering the network via the requested Web pages, providing immediate protection against malware and other hidden threats.
