The release of a new Gartner Magic Quadrant is always an exciting time for technology providers, including Securonix. There are multiple things to be said about the “MQ”, but invariably it turns into a simplistic discussion of winners and losers (cue to ABBA’s “The Winner Takes it All”).
As much as I could do it too, considering Securonix is again positioned as a Leader and some of our competitors have significantly dropped in their position, I like to look at this research document with my old industry analyst hat. There are many interesting points hidden in the 35 pages, not only in its famous “Figure 1”. What are the interesting things we can extract this time?
First, as good as it is to look at the vendors in the quadrant, it’s also important to notice those that are not there. Some vendors that used to be part of the MQ are not even listed anymore, and some trying to compete in this space haven’t made the cut. Why?
