Secure Islands Named "Cool Vendor" By Leading Industry Analyst Firm
Secure Islands, a leading provider of information protection solutions and services, today announced that it has been included in the list of "Cool Vendors in Security: Application and Data Protection, 2012" report authored by Ray Wagner, Neil MacDonald Gartner's vice president, distinguished analyst and Gartner Fellow, et al. Gartner's research identified Secure Islands as a "Cool Vendor" due to its innovative, impactful and intriguing approach.
According to the April 24th report, Gartner's 2012 Cool Vendors in application and data protection offer an exceptionally innovative and forward-thinking set of solutions designed to address emerging or newly identified security challenges. These vendors' highly innovative technologies and business models may not be suitable for every enterprise's needs — all enterprises must deal with the usual challenges facing new market entrants and new technologies — but these technologies are well worth evaluating.
