PortAuthority Technologies announces that it has been named a leader in the information leak prevention market by Forrester

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- PortAuthority Technologies, Inc.,™ the Authority in Information Leak Prevention (ILP), today announced that it has been named a leader in the Information Leak Prevention market (Forrester Research’s “Forrester Wave™: Information Leak Prevention, Q4, 2006, December 2006”). The report describes PortAuthority Technologies’ position as a leader in the ILP market due to its overall strategy and solid product functionality. In this evaluation, PortAuthority Technologies earned top scores in the Policy Management, Architecture and Product Strategy evaluation criteria.1

In the report, the first in-depth Wave analysis of its kind for the ILP market and key players, Jonathan Penn, principal analyst, identity and security, writes that, “PortAuthority Technologies offers a leading, functionally rich, information leak prevention solution, with a track record of innovation and strong strategic vision. In our Forrester Wave study of eight leading ILP offerings, PortAuthority scored highly in nearly every area of functionality we reviewed, standing out particularly in policy management, non-text accuracy, and external system connectivity. Organizations wanting a functionally comprehensive solution, but weary of adding desktop agents to users’ systems, will deem PortAuthority an attractive option.”2

PortAuthority Technologies scored the highest overall in “Strategy” in the ILP market with its “track record of innovation, strong technology and license partners, and an impressive product road map,” according to Forrester Research.2 This ranking is comprised of scores in evaluation criteria categories such as Product Strategy, Strategic Partnerships and Cost.

“We at PortAuthority are proud of being named a leader in Forrester’s report, which reflects our strong strategy to deliver Total Protection for Confidential Information and the direction we have taken the PortAuthority product for our growing enterprise customer base,” said PortAuthority Technologies CEO Pete Foley. “It’s exciting to see the interest and traction this market is getting, following our introduction of the first ILP product back in 2002. More and more of the customer deals we are winning are competitive in nature, which keeps us innovating and executing on our strategy as a market leader.”
