Symantec named Leader by Forrester for Data Security Portfolio

29 Jul 2019

Symantec has been positioned as a Leader in “The Forrester Wave: Data Security Portfolio Vendors, Q2 2019,” a new report published by Forrester Research.

The Q2 2019 Forrester Wave report evaluated 13 vendors based on a comprehensive set of 25 evaluation criteria. 

Symantec was recognised as a Leader based on current offering, strategy, and market presence with the highest overall ranking in the current offering category.

According to the Forrester report, “Symantec supports a Zero Trust approach across a broad array of capabilities spanning data, endpoint, and network security. In data security, strengths include robust visibility and control via data loss prevention, access control, and encryption.”

Symantec’s Information Protection products safeguard sensitive data through secure access and keep employees productive wherever they work. 

The Q2 Wave report evaluated Symantec’s portfolio of products including Data Loss Prevention, CloudSOC, Encryption, Information Centric Analytics, Information Centric Tagging, and VIP.

“The cloud has fundamentally changed the way we work, and with that come significant challenges in protecting critical business information,” says Symantec information senior vice president Nico Popp. 

“Symantec’s Information Protection portfolio is a holistic, integrated data security platform that goes beyond what other vendors offer with coverage for all control points on premises, in the cloud, and Zero Trust access. We believe this is why we ranked the highest in the current offering category in Forrester’s report.”

As organisations move toward a Zero Trust security framework, Symantec’s Integrated Cyber Defense Platform is uniquely positioned to protect the new business perimeter with strong data security and governance offerings. 

Symantec’s holistic, integrated data security platform delivers broad coverage for control points, ease of manageability and deployment, superior discovery and inspection, and comprehensive incident remediation.

Symantec helps organisations, governments and people secure their most important data wherever it lives. 

It provides strategic, integrated solutions to defend against sophisticated attacks across endpoints, cloud and infrastructure. 

It also provides the Norton and LifeLock product suites to help protect digital lives at home and across their devices. 

Symantec operates one of the world's largest civilian cyber intelligence networks, allowing it to see and protect against the most advanced threats.
