We’re excited to announce that in the newly released 2016 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Loss Prevention, Symantec has been named a leader for the ninth straight year, scoring higher in execution and further in vision than ever before.

The Magic Quadrant  is a culmination of research in a specific market, providing insights on how well technology providers are executing their stated visions and how well they are performing against Gartner’s market view. Think of it as a market snapshot that ranks vendors according to competitive buying criteria.

To be a Leader in Data Loss Prevention (DLP), vendors must:

  • Demonstrate a good understanding of customer needs
  • Offer comprehensive capabilities in network, discovery and endpoint
  • Have strong management interfaces and tight integration with other products
  • Offer aggressive roadmaps and usually deliver on them
