Experton Security Vendor Benchmark 2016: GBS chosen as “Rising Star” in Data Leakage Prevention sector
Karlsruhe , Germany
As a “Rising Star”, GBS’s iQ.Suite Email Management solution continues to ascend in the category “E-Mail/Web/Collaboration Security”
GROUP Business Software (GBS) has once again been selected by the Experton Group as a “Rising Star” in the Experton Security Vendor Benchmark 2016. In an independent study, the Experton Group has conducted their yearly evaluation and rated the performance of security solutions and service providers.
The email management solution, iQ.Suite, available for both Microsoft Exchange and IBM Domino, convinced the analysts in not just one, but in two categories. GBS strengthened its position in the “Email and Collaboration” quadrant and moved even closer to the “Leader” quadrant. “After being selected as ‘Rising Star for Email and Collaboration Security’ in 2015, we are proud of having improved our standing even further. This affirms our strategy of taking the topics of security and defence against cyber attacks seriously and moving forward with innovative technology”, says Constanze Zarth, Managing Director at GBS, with enthusiasm.
The analysts examined the range of functions offered - encrypting, for example, and took the parallel safeguarding of collaboration solutions into consideration as well. In particular, the high rating can be attributed to the appeal of the product portfolio at GBS, especially since the launch of iQ.Suite PDFCrypt for email encryption.
For the first time, Experton evaluated iQ.Suite in the “Data Leakage Prevention” quadrant. GBS was promptly awarded recognition as a “Rising Star” here as well. Various data leakage prevention solutions relevant for the German market were rated according to criteria such as the capability to classify data or to use individual black and white lists. GBS’s innovative technology allowing precise control of email communication rightly helped the company earn the title of “Rising Star”.
The award is Experton Group’s fitting acknowledgement of GBS’s strategy to expand their services in data leakage prevention. The email experts at GBS have placed great value on enhancing their DLP solution to detect exceptions to behavioural norms in electronic communication. “We’re so pleased that Experton expressly commends the innovative character of iQ.Suite DLP. At the CeBIT 2016, we will present our advanced DLP technology to detect irregularities in email communication, a reliable way of recognizing and preventing unintentional data leakage”, according to Andreas Richter, EVP Marketing & Product Management at GBS.
