CYBEROAM UTM RATED POSITIVE IN LEADING INDUSTRY ANALYST FIRM’S MARKET SCOPE ON MULTIFUNCTION FIREWALLS
Ahmedabad, India – 30th July, 2008
Cyberoam, a leading vendor of Identity-based Unified Threat Management (UTM) solutions received the ‘Positive’ rating by Gartner in its June 2008 “Market Scope for Multifunction Firewalls for Small and Midsize Businesses (SMB).” Cyberoam believes it stands out in the crowded UTM market through its unique identity-based network access.
Referring to the evaluation criteria for the innovation category, the Gartner report, authored by Gartner analysts Greg Young and Adam Hils includes, “Innovation, including R&D, and quality differentiators, such as performance, meeting customer requirements in a timely manner, integration with other security products, management interface and clarity of reporting. The more a product mirrors the workflow of the enterprise operation scenario, the better the vision. Products that are not intuitive in deployment or operations are difficult to configure, or have limited reporting scores. Solving customer problems is a key element of this category. Reducing the rules base, interproduct support and leading competitors on features are important.”
“We believe the Positive Rating reflects Cyberoam’s indepth understanding of the SMB security needs,” says Hemal Patel, CEO of Elitecore Technologies, the vendor of Cyberoam. “This translates into ease of deployment and configuration as a result of Cyberoam’s unique access controls based on user identity. We feel the rating is a validation to existing and prospective partners and customers regarding Cyberoam’s capability in delivering added value over other solutions in this industry.”
Cyberoam’s identity-based network access and control gives visibility into ‘Who is Doing What?’ in the network and controls the individual user activity. In doing so, it offers great granularity in controls based on each user’s business requirements, supporting the workflow of the organization, high levels of business flexibility as well as proactive security against evolving attack patterns. Further, its multi-core technology offers high performance and scalability for rapidly growing SMBs. It also offers ease in deployment and operation, meeting the requirements of SMBs who lack dedicated IT resources to manage security.
The Gartner report adds, “Overall, the worldwide SMB multifunction firewall market was approximately $1.2 billion in 2007, with a forecast 35% to 40% compound annual growth rate through 2011. The SMB multifunction firewall market is a highly competitive, fragmented market, with more than 20 active vendors.”
Cyberoam has moved into 55 countries within a span of 2 years, including USA, UK, France, Switzerland, Australia and more, displaying speed in execution.
