Analysten positionieren F5 im Leaders Quadrant des SSL VPN Market Research Report

München-Dornach, (PresseBox) - F5 Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: FFIV), the global leader in Application Delivery Networking, today announced that it is positioned in the Leaders quadrant of Gartner, Inc.'s Magic Quadrant for SSL VPN, North America, published in December 2008.

Using SSL tunneling for encrypted traffic, F5's SSL VPN solutions provide high performance, policy-based, secure access to enterprise applications for any user, over any device or network.

This type of simple, broad, and flexible secure access makes IT and businesses more agile in delivering new applications to users, customers, and partners.

"In my opinion, being placed in the Leaders quadrant reinforces our strong commitment to the secure access market," said Mark Vondemkamp, Director of Product Management at F5. "Innovations in our FirePass solution, such as the Visual Policy Editor for simplifying administration, and iRules scripting for programming complex gateway operations, set F5 apart from the competition. We are also proud of the fact that a number of leading global providers are using our solutions to deliver remote access services."

According to Gartner, "Leaders demonstrate balanced progress and effort on all execution and vision categories. Their actions raise the competitive bar for all products in the market, and they can change the course of the industry. To remain in the Leaders quadrant, these vendors must excel in mobile access and protection and dominate in sales. A leading vendor is not a default choice for every buyer, and clients are warned not to assume that they should buy only from the Leaders quadrant."1
