Gartner and the Magic Quadrant

Gartner, a foremost authority on independent research and consulting in the technology marketplace, uses an informed methodology to help consumers make smart investment decisions. Businesses of all sizes utilize Gartner’s innovative approaches to drive higher, sustainable performance. 

To summarize massive amounts of data into an at-a-glance comparison of technology companies by discipline, Gartner uses the Magic Quadrant diagram. The diagram is basically a square broken into four equal parts. Each evaluated company who meets the criteria for ranking is designated as either a Niche Player, Challenger, Visionary or Leader based on an extensive collection of information from the vendor, the solution and the customers.

Gartner and Cofense

Gartner Magic Quadrant rankings prove to be invaluable to both technology providers and businesses, especially when evaluating cyber security products. Data breaches are a major concern for today’s businesses; and email phishing remains one of the most common channels for cyber attacks and a primary source of data loss.

In the 2020 Market Guide to Email Security, Gartner states that “solutions need to be a combination of technology and user education.” 2 Cofense provides a turnkey phishing defense solution that helps customers leverage their employees to rapidly identify phishing attacks and provide the security operations teams the products needed to streamline the detection and response cycle that ensues. In essence, Cofense customers are able to operationalize the training provided by PhishMe using the Cofense one-click Reporter button to demonstrably stop phishing attacks in their tracks.
