Carbon Black Named a Visionary in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms for Third Consecutive Year

As a Visionary in Gartner’s latest Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms, Carbon Black was recognized for its ability to execute and completeness of vision

WALTHAM, Mass., Aug. 27, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Carbon Black, a leader in cloud-native endpoint protection, today announced it was named a Visionary in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms (EPP) for the third consecutive year. Carbon Black believes placement in the Visionaries quadrant validates the company’s approach to protecting the endpoint by leveraging big data and analytics in the cloud – using a single agent and single console – to gain deep insight into attacker behaviors.

“In recent years, our ability to protect global organizations has been vastly accelerated by the cloud, which offers a powerful, elastic and more collaborative way to store, analyze and instantly access endpoint data,” said Carbon Black CEO Patrick Morley. “The power of big data and the cloud have vastly changed many industries, and Carbon Black is now leading this transformation for cybersecurity. We believe that placement in the Visionaries quadrant underscores why customers continue to place their trust in us to keep their endpoints protected from advanced attacks.”

According to the Gartner “Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms” by Peter Firstbrook, Dionisio Zumerle, Prateek Bhajanka, Lawrence Pingree, and Paul Webber on Aug. 20, 2019: “Traditional EPP solutions have been delivered via a client agent managed by an on-premises management server. More modern solutions utilize a cloud-native architecture that shifts the management, and some of the analysis and detection workload, to the cloud. Security and risk management leaders responsible for endpoint protection are placing a premium on detection capabilities for advanced fileless threats and investigation and remediation capabilities.”

Since it was first launched, Carbon Black’s Cloud EPP has gained fast traction in the market, climbing to more than $100 million in annualized recurring revenue (ARR) in less than four years, and gaining more than 3,400 cloud customers.

According to the Gartner “Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms” by Peter Firstbrook, Dionisio Zumerle, Prateek Bhajanka, Lawrence Pingree, and Paul Webber on Aug. 20, 2019: “By 2025, cloud-delivered EPP solutions will grow from 20% of new deals to 95%.”

“We believe this represents an enormous market opportunity for our cloud-native EPP, the Predictive Security Cloud (PSC),” Morley said.

He added: “Our continued innovation in the cloud is helping customers arrive at stronger protection, higher operational efficiency and faster time to value. The way our product organization has delivered on our vision over the past 18 months has been nothing short of impressive and, I believe, a key reason why we’re recognized in this market.”
