Research analyst house, Gartner Inc., best known for their Magic Quadrant reports, has announced the 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Enterprise Data Loss Prevention Software. Gartner Peer Insights is an online platform of ratings of solutions and solution providers from IT professionals, offering a collection of customer feedback to both vendors and prospective customers. The goal of these awards is to assist IT leaders with making insightful purchase choices, as well as help providers better their solutions by receiving objective and unbiased feedback from their customers.
The Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice Winners are determined by compiling customers’ overall rankings of products by solution ratings, the number of published reviews, and subjective customer opinions. The Peer Insights include over 100,000 reviews across more than 300 markets and industries.
Gartner states that the enterprise data loss prevention market “comprises offerings that provide visibility into data usage across an organization for a broad set of use cases and the dynamic application of policies based on the content and context at the time of operation.” Though the vendors featured are not in the backup and disaster recovery field, specifically, the work they do is relevant to the space. The 2018 Enterprise Data Loss Prevention Peer Insights Customers’ Choice Winners were three solution providers who, according to the Gartner Peer Insights respondents, best fit Gartner’s definition of the market: Forcepoint, McAfee, and Symantec.
In a press statement, vice president of corporate products at McAfee, Raja Patel said, “ we believe our position as a Dec. 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Enterprise Data Loss Prevention is a testament to our device-to-cloud strategy.
