The latest issue (2013) of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Firewalls was released yesterday and shows Palo Alto Networks strengthening its position in the Leaders Quadrant with all other major vendors in the sector weakening.
“Palo Alto Networks continues to both drive competitors to react in the firewall market and to move the overall firewall market forward. It is assessed as a Leader, mostly because of its NGFW design, direction of the market along the NGFW path, consistent displacement of competitors, rapidly increasing revenue and market share, and market disruption that forces competitors in all quadrants to react.”
