LONDON and BOSTON--23 Jul--PRNewswire/InfoQuest

Positive Technologies, a leading provider of security solutions, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the "Visionaries" quadrant of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Application Firewalls. Positive Technologies is placed the furthest to the right in the Visionaries quadrant based on its completeness of vision.

"We are one of the smaller vendors in this Magic Quadrant but we believe what has really helped us achieve our position here is that we are very focused on innovation and growing rapidly," reveals Elaine Mullan, International Marketing Manager, "We are a visionary with unique leading-edge security features.   We have a strong capability to protect business applications including SAP."

"We consider Gartner's positioning of Positive Technologies in the Visionaries quadrant as recognition of our ongoing commitment to keep our research and development approach as unconventional as possible," explains Dan Tara, VP Business Development, "The threat landscape has developed in complexity.   The market recognizes traditional firewalls, load balancers with application security features are no longer sufficient. High security solutions focused on application security itself are now essential to ensure organizations are protected. PT Application Firewall(TM) offers our customers a radical solution to manage the effects of this changing cyber security landscape.   For a truly revolutionary application security solution our customers use our source code security testing solution PT Application Inspector(TM) in tandem with PT Application Firewall(TM).

Every organization globally is exposed to cyber security risk with application security central to reducing the risk being felt by business which can include: reputational risk, downtime, data breach and financial losses and fines.   The pressure on business has moved up the line from security departments to the CIO with the recognition that cyber security is a board room issue and without a robust security policy and solution the risk increases to a critical level and potentially very damaging to the organization.
