Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls 2018

Security landscape is evolving fast, so fast detection and mitigation is important for customers.   Many enterprises are looking to firewall vendors to provide cloud-based malware detection instances to aid them in their advanced threat detection efforts, as a cost-effective alternative to stand-alone sandboxing appliances.
SSL Decryption is one of the key topics, since TLS 1.2 to the TLS 1.3 standard will undoubtedly force changes in how enterprise firewall vendors process the traffic.
Policy Orchestration and Automation Become Critical on SDN deployments, some vendors haven’t provide much attention om this topic. Firewall Services Within IaaS Environments Become an Area of Differentiation.

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?

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)
