Ubizen Positioned In ‘visionary Quadrant’ Of Managed Security Services Magic Quadrant Report

Ubizen, the principal provider of Managed Security Solutions (MSS) for global businesses, has announced that Gartner, Inc., the world’s leading technology research and advisory firm, positioned Ubizen in the visionary quadrant of the Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP) Magic Quadrant for the first half of 2004.

Gartner evaluates the following areas to measure “completeness of vision” in the magic quadrant:

– R&D
– Breadth of Services
– Security Management Processes
– Device Management Technology
– A Secure Web-based Portal

“We are pleased that Gartner positioned Ubizen in the visionary MSSP quadrant, as it reflects our strong MSSP vision,” said Stijn Bijnens, Ubizen’s chief executive officer. “We anticipate that our growing blue chip customer list and continued premier partnerships, such as those with the four leading credit card companies, will elevate Ubizen’s placement in the market.”

After a rigorous examination of numerous managed security services providers, Gartner evaluated 24 vendors in the North American MSSP market on their completeness of vision and ability to execute. Gartner’s visionary quadrant lists vendors that have a clear vision of market direction and are focused on preparing for the future, but can still improve in terms of optimising service delivery.
