Microsoft placed in Visionaries Quadrant in latest Gartner SSL VPN Magic Quadrant

On December 6, analyst firm Gartner Inc., announced that Microsoft Intelligent Application Gateway (IAG) 2007 is positioned in the Visionaries quadrant of their 2007 SSL VPN Magic Quadrant report. Not only was IAG described as an “excellent new product”, but Gartner also noted that our acquisition of Whale Communications “filled a serious gap in Microsoft’s secure application access strategy by adding a robust gateway and strong endpoint security.”

Gartner noted that we have too many divergent remote access solutions, but part of our strong score was due to our ability to demonstrate that we have a comprehensive vision for how these technologies and solutions align in the future. And what a future it is.
