09 Feb 16

Bitdefender has been named a Visionary in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms.

Gartner designed the Magic Quadrant to inform businesses on how various vendors in the sector are positioned to help them over the long haul, taking into account factors such as market understanding, product strategy, innovation, market responsiveness and customer experience.

In a statement, the company said, “We believe this recognition attests to the company's rapid advancement in the enterprise space.”

"We feel Gartner's positioning of Bitdefender as a Visionary in the industry offers powerful validation of the years of research we have put into staying at the forefront of technological advancements in endpoint security and into meeting the precise needs of businesses," says Bogdan Dumitru, Bitdefender chief technology officer.

"Our recent runaway success in the enterprise space, with particularly accelerated growth in sales over the past two years, we believe firmly backs up Gartner's assessment,” he says.

Bitdefender's Enterprise endpoint protection offering consists of Bitdefender GravityZone, a security solution to secure even the most complex hybrid infrastructures. Whether physical or virtual, a combination of on-premise and private or public cloud, GravityZone offers organisations effective risk management.
