Sophos placed as a leader in the latest Forrester Endpoint Wave
Sophos scored “5 out of 5” for malware and exploit prevention criteria.
Sophos has been named a “leader” in the Forrester Wave™: Endpoint Security Suites, Q2 2018. Sophos has scored a “5 out of 5” in the criteria for malware prevention, exploit prevention, prevention efficacy, end user experience, and admin experience.
The machine learning capabilities now included in Intercept X were also cited and the report noted that:
Sophos offers a broad, tightly integrated portfolio of endpoint security tools…for enterprise buyers looking for a full prevention-oriented suite, Sophos is an easy shortlist addition.
Sophos believes that the report reflects the strong positive feedback from customers and partners, validating the recent malware and exploit prevention tests by MRG Effitas.
While Forrester stated that “Customer satisfaction is very high for both the admin experience and low impact to endpoint performance,” Forrester noted the absence of EDR, which Forrester noted will be available in an upcoming release.
We believe that the Forrester Wave delivers external endorsement for the effectiveness of Sophos products. However, it is just one piece of evidence and should be viewed in conjunction with a range of materials such as the Gartner Magic Quadrant, MRG Effitas studies, and customer testimonials.
We continue to work with independent review and testing organizations to provide our customers and partners with comprehensive and independent assessments of our products.
