Tumbleweed Positioned in Leaders Quadrant of 2007 Gartner Email Encryption Magic Quadrant

  • 07 December, 2007 17:39

<p>Sydney 7 December 2007 – Tumbleweed® Communications Corp.(NASDAQ:TMWD), an industry leader in managed file transfer and content security, today announced that it has been positioned in the Leaders Quadrant of the newly released Gartner “Magic Quadrant for Email Encryption, 2007” (Eric Ouellet and Arabella Hallawell, 8 November 2007).</p>
<p>The Gartner Magic Quadrant for Email Encryption looks at e-mail encryption products securing e-mail content data and attachments. According to the analyst group, “leaders” are vendors who are performing well today, have a clear vision of market direction, and are actively building competencies to sustain their leadership position in the market.</p>
<p>“We believe our position in the leaders quadrant of is recognition of our content security expertise, with encryption serving as its foundation across multiple products, including the emerging managed file transfer space,” said Taher Elgamal, CTO of Tumbleweed Communications and known in information security circles as a founding father of Internet security and the inventor of widely used SSL encryption . “Our product roadmap further extends our commitment to developing strong encryption technology and will enable us to deploy it in new areas to keep customer data secure while driving encryption innovation forward.”</p>
<p>The Gartner report stated, "One growth trend in the e-mail encryption market has been through data loss prevention (DLP) projects. Companies that invested in DLP initially monitored traffic for policy violations or to understand how their businesses used sensitive data. However, as soon as companies turn to an enforcement mode, e-mail encryption becomes an important mechanism for allowing the transit of sensitive data."</p>
