Gartner Recognizes ValidEdge as a “Cool Vendor” for Infrastructure Protection

ValidEdge was one of five vendors globally identified in the highly prestigious Gartner report prepared by analysts Ray Wagner, Joseph Feiman, Lawrence Orans, John Pescatore, Neil MacDonald, Peter Firstbrook and Greg Young.

San Jose, CA, May 08, 2011 --( According to the Gartner report released on April 21, 2011: One recurring trend among these comparatively new technology providers is their focus on addressing the increasingly difficult security demands of increasingly heterogeneous — and frequently virtualized — computing environments, and doing so very rapidly and with minimal disruption of business operations.

“Recognition by Gartner on the Cool Vendor list is a significant achievement. ValidEdge offers a unique malware solution for enterprises that are under persistent attack from sophisticated hackers. Any organization with high-value assets, including government agencies, financial institutions or other mature security incident response teams now have the ability to detect, analyze and repair compromised systems within minutes” said Gurjot Singh, CEO at ValidEdge.
