McAfee, Inc. Positioned in the Leaders Quadrant in Analyst Firm's Magic Quadrant for Mobile Data Protection

Position Based on McAfee's Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

(PresseBox) ( Santa Clara, Calif., )
McAfee, Inc. (NYSE: MFE), today announced that leading research firm Gartner, Inc. has placed the company in the leaders quadrant in its "Magic Quadrant for Mobile Data Protection," as published on September 1, 2009 (1).

According to Gartner, vendors listed in the leader's quadrant "have products that work well for Gartner clients in small and large deployments. They have long-term road maps that follow and/or influence Gartner's vision of the developing needs of buyers in the market. Leaders make their competitors' sales staffs nervous and force competitors' technical staffs to follow their lead. Their Mobile Data Protection (MDP) products are well-known to clients, and they are frequently found on RFP shortlists."

Factors contributing to a company's ability to execute include products and services, overall viability, sales and marketing execution, and customer experience. Gartner evaluates a company's completeness of vision by considering in part its market understanding, sales and marketing strategy, offering or product strategy, business model, and innovation.

"We believe McAfee's position in the leader's quadrant validates our continuing work to innovate and stay ahead of threats," said Gerhard Watzinger, general manager of McAfee's data protection business unit. "Organizations of all sizes rely on McAfee to ensure that their data is protected against ever-evolving security threats that compromise sensitive information. McAfee, along with its partners, remains committed to providing the best data protection in the industry."

McAfee Total Protection for Data uses strong encryption, authentication, data loss prevention, and policy-driven security controls to prevent unauthorized access and transfer of the sensitive information--anywhere, anytime. The solution uses full-disk encryption combined with strong access control via two-factor pre-boot authentication to prevent unauthorized access to sensitive data on all endpoints, including desktops, laptops, handhelds, smart phones, and more.
