Dell Recognized as a Leader in Gartner 2014 Magic Quadrant for Unified Threat Management (UTM)

Dell announced today that the
company has been positioned in the Leaders quadrant of the 2014
Magic Quadrant for Unified Threat Management by Gartner, Inc.
This is the second consecutive time Dell has been named to the Leaders
Quadrant for network security for small and medium businesses. Prior to
Dell’s acquisition in 2012, SonicWALL had been placed in the leader
quadrant for the Magic Quadrant for Unified Threat Management since 2009.
The Gartner report notes that vendors in the Leaders quadrant “are at
the forefront of making and selling UTM products that are built for
midsize-business requirements. The requirements necessary for leadership
include a wide range of models to cover midsize-business use cases,
support for multiple features, and a management and reporting capability
that's designed for ease of use. Vendors in this quadrant lead the
market in offering new safeguarding features, and in enabling customers
to deploy them inexpensively without significantly affecting the
end-user experience or increasing staffing burdens. These vendors also
have a good track record of avoiding vulnerabilities in their security
products. Common characteristics include reliability, consistent
throughput, and products that are intuitive to manage and administer.”
Dell offers thirteen UTM products in two main product lines to meet the
needs of the small and midsize business (SMB) markets: the SonicWALL TZ
Series for the smallest businesses, and the SonicWALL NSA Series for
small and midsize companies. Dell targets the enterprise market with its
SonicWALL SuperMassive Series, and also provides other network security
solutions, such as SSL VPN and email security gateway. “Gartner defines
the UTM market as multifunction network security products used by small
or midsize businesses (SMBs). Gartner defines midsize businesses as
those with 100 to 1,000 employees, and with revenue ranging from $50
million to $1 billion. UTM products for this market need to provide the
following feature areas at a minimum:
Network security (stateful firewall and intrusion prevention)
Web security gateway
Remote access for mobile employees (VPNs)
“Gartner noted recently that the unified threat management market grew
by 14.1 percent from $1.3 billion in 2012 to $1.54 billion in 2013."
Patrick Sweeney, executive director of product management, Dell
“The Dell SonicWALL unified threat management product line offers our
customers performance, productivity without compromise, and deep network
security – all at an affordable price – which is very attractive to
small and mid-sized organizations. Our customers tell us that the low
price and comprehensive set of features are what differentiate our UTM
products from others in the market, and we will continue to invest in
these solutions to ensure we maintain and grow our industry-leading
capabilities to meet our customers’ most pressing needs. We believe our
positioning in the Leaders’ quadrant once again is evidence of our
strong commitment to the UTM market.”

Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business. Unlike traditional approaches to building solutions, a cognitive computing approach allows the data to help determine the way applications are designed. This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates.
