Secure Computing Positioned in the Leaders Quadrant for Secure Web Gateway Magic Quadrant

September 2008 by Marc Jacob

Secure Computing Corporation announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc., a premier research and advisory firm, in the Leaders Quadrant of the "Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateway" report published on September, 11, 2008 (written by: Peter Firstbrook and Lawrence Orans). This report evaluates 21 vendors.

According to Gartner, "Leaders are high-momentum vendors (based on sales and ’mind share’ growth) with emerging track records in Web gateway security, as well as vision and business investments that indicate they are well-positioned for the future. Leaders do not necessarily offer the best products for every customer project; however, they provide solutions that offer relatively lower risk."

According to the report, "a Secure Web Gateway (SWG) is a solution that filters unwanted software/malware from user-initiated Web/Internet traffic and enforces corporate and regulatory policy compliance. To achieve this goal, SWGs must, at a minimum, include Web filtering, malicious-code detection and filtering, and application controls for popular Web-based applications. Native or integrated Data Leak Prevention is also increasingly included."

Secure Computing offers a complete portfolio of Web gateway security appliances that address these issues and more. Secure Computing’s Secure Web (formerly known as Webwasher(R)) is the industry’s first and only reputation-based solution that protects enterprises against malware and spyware, phishing fraud and identity theft, data leakage, and Internet misuse. Simultaneously, it helps to ensure policy enforcement, regulatory compliance, and a productive application environment.

Secure Computing has set a standard for preemptive detection through the company’s industry-leading reputation system, TrustedSource(TM). Integrating this reputation scoring information with behavioral analysis and the millions of URLs in its award-winning database, Secure Computing gives organizations the most effective protection on the enterprise gateway against security threats.
