New Email Security Magic Quadrant: Proofpoint is a Leader in the 2012 Magic Quadrant for Secure Email Gateways
New for 2012, Gartner's "Magic Quadrant for Secure Email Gateways" -- wherein Gartner describes the current state of the email security market, technology and threat trends, and describes the leading vendors and solutions in this market -- has been published.
As usual, Proofpoint has licensed a reprint of the new magic quadrant and you can read the full report, compliments of Proofpoint, at the following URL:
Writing in the 2012 "Magic Quadrant for Secure Email Gateways," Gartner analysts Peter Firstbrook and Eric Ouellet note that, "Buyers should focus on strategic vendors, data loss prevention capability, encryption and better protection from targeted phishing attacks."
While spam volumes have declined, Gartner notes that targeted attacks against organizations represent an increasingly serious threat, noting that, "Better protection from targeted phishing attacks is the most critical new inbound protection capability (72% of respondents indicated that this was a very important capability), but only a few vendors have advanced the state of the art against these attacks."
