Dell announced today that the company has been positioned in the Leaders quadrant of the 2013 Magic Quadrant for Unified Threat Management by Gartner, Inc.1 In its report, Gartner analysts Greg Young and Jeremy D'Hoinne emphasize the importance of unified threat management (UTM) devices, which provide small and midsize businesses multiple network security functions in a single appliance.
Dell offers two UTM product lines to the small and midsize business (SMB) markets: the SonicWALL TZ line for the smallest businesses, and the SonicWALL NSA Series for small and midsize companies. “Gartner defines the UTM market as multifunction network security products used by SMBs. Gartner defines midsize businesses as having 100 to 1,000 employees, with revenue ranging from $50 million to $1 billion. UTM products for the SMB market must provide the following functions at a minimum:
“For 2012, Gartner estimates that worldwide revenue in the UTM market totaled approximately $1.53 billion, which represents an 18.7 percent growth over its estimate for 20111.”
The Gartner report notes that vendors in the Leaders quadrant “are at the forefront of making and selling UTM products that are built for midsize business requirements. The requirements necessary for leadership include a wide range of models to cover midsize business use cases, support for multiple features, and a management and reporting capability that's designed for ease of use. Vendors in this quadrant lead the market in offering new safeguarding features, and in enabling customers to deploy them inexpensively without significantly affecting the end-user experience or increasing staffing burdens. Vendors also have a good track record of avoiding vulnerabilities in their security products. Common characteristics include reliability, consistent throughput, and products that are intuitive to manage and administer.”
Patrick Sweeney, executive director of product management, Dell SonicWALL:
“The Dell SonicWALL unified threat management product line is a cost-effective solution with very good overall performance and low total cost of ownership, making these offerings particularly attractive to the mid-market. Our positioning in the Leaders quadrant is a result of our strong commitment to the UTM market. Both the award-winning TZ and NSA Series offer performance, productivity without compromise, and deep network security to small and midsized organizations."
