Stonesoft Positioned in the Visionaries Quadrant of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls
Cyber Security market visionary Stonesoft announced today it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Visionaries quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls. No other vendor was listed as a visionary.
“The only way to stay ahead of the ever-changing threat landscape is to be a visionary and Gartner has recognised us for our efforts,” said Ilkka Hiidenheimo, founder and CEO of Stonesoft. “We invest significantly in research and development of solutions that can evolve and protect lives and businesses in cyber space.”
Stonesoft was recently placed in the Visionaries Quadrant of Gartner’s Magic Quadrant report for Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS). The company also announced that NSS Labs confirmed that the Stonesoft IPS-1302 provides 100 percent protection against all tested evasion techniques and a low total cost of ownership (TCO) during real-world traffic and threat scenarios. Stonesoft is one of only two vendors in the world with NSS Labs recommended status across firewall, next generation firewall and IPS.
“Attackers also invest heavily in their strategies and they fully understand the technology behind IPS and Firewalls. Advanced evasion techniques (AET) now are becoming more prevalent because they avoid detection,” says Hiidenheimo. “Embedding AET protection in our products is one of the reasons Stonesoft is a visionary.”
Stonesoft will be demonstrating how AETs can be used to bypass all major security products live during the RSA Conference in San Francisco, United States, February 25 to March 1.
