Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls 2017

Cisco is climbing fast, Fortinet faster, PaloAlto still leading and filling their gaps in portfolio and Check Point released finally the R80 for gateways. I predict 4 Leaders next year, it will be a nice race to watch!

Magic Quadrant for Application Delivery Controllers 2016

Interesting to lead the pitch!

The research shows the most common ADC features used by customers:

  • Server Load Balancing — 100%
  • SSL Offload — 70%
  • TCP Multiplexing — 34%
  • Web Content Optimization — 32%
  • Global Load Balancing — 31%
  • Application-Specific Configuration — 30%
  • WAF — 25% (however, we observe 30% to 50% of clients are interested in WAF on their ADCs, based on inquiry)
  • Customized Programmatic Scripting — 24%
  • SSL VPN — 21%
  • IPv6 Gateway Services — 4%
  • Other — 7%

Gartner Magic Quadrant for Intrusion Prevention Systems 2015

Cisco acquired Sourcefire, and in addition, Intel Security (McAfee) acquired Stonesoft in 2013. Some small players are coming like Wins, this will be interesting to see the evolution. Shall we expect a new acquisition soon?

Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls 2015

Check Point Software Technologies and Palo Alto Networks still Leaders, since Cisco acquired Sourcefire and have launch FirePOWER we will see changes in Leadership i guess. SDN is another hot topic that will bring challenges for customers and vendors also.

Vendors Added and Dropped

We review and adjust our inclusion criteria for Magic Quadrants and MarketScopes as markets change. As
a result of these adjustments, the mix of vendors in any Magic Quadrant or MarketScope may change
over time. A vendor’s appearance in a Magic Quadrant or MarketScope one year and not the next does
not necessarily indicate that we have changed our opinion of that vendor. It may be a reflection of a
change in the market and, therefore, changed evaluation criteria, or of a change of focus by that vendor.

Added

Extreme Networks (through the acquisition of Enterasys Networks)

Dropped

Fortinet

Vendors  Added  and  Dropped

We review and adjust our inclusion criteria for Magic Quadrants and MarketScopes as markets change.
As a result of these adjustments, the mix of vendors in any Magic Quadrant or MarketScope may change over time. A vendor’s appearance in a Magic Quadrant or MarketScope one year and not the next does not necessarily indicate that we have changed our opinion of that vendor. It may be a reflection of a change in the market and, therefore, changed evaluation criteria, or of a change of focus by that vendor.

Added

Piolink was added to the 2014 Magic Quadrant.

Dropped

Fortinet was dropped because it no longer meets our revenue criteria.
Brocade, which focuses on providing scalable and high-performance solutions to organizations that operate very large networks — predominantly in the service provider segment — did not meet the requirement for 500 enterprise customers, which is part of our inclusion criteria.
We track a number of vendors that do not meet our inclusion criteria because they garner interest from the Gartner client base and/or have the potential to impact this marketplace over time. Vendors actively tracked by Gartner include Brocade, Embrane, Fortinet, IBM, jetNEXUS, Loadbalancer.org, Microsoft and VMware, and cloud-only vendors such as Akamai, AWS, Instart Logic, Lagrange Systems and Virtela (an NTT Communications company). In addition, Gartner follows open-source solutions such as HAProxy and Nginx.
