TEL-AVIV, Israel, October 20, 2021 – Perception Point, a leading email and cloud collaboration channel security company, offering fast interception of content-borne attacks as a service, announced today that it has been listed as a Representative Vendor in 2021 Gartner Market Guide Report for Email Security for the third year in a row, in the Integrated Cloud Email Security (ICES) category. The report included three of Perception Point’s offerings: Advanced Email Security, Advanced Internal Email Security, and the Advanced Collaboration Security solutions.
In the Gartner report, Representative Vendors were selected “on the basis of one or both of the following: client interest via searches on gartner.com and client inquiries about that vendor for email security, and vendors offering email security capabilities in ways that are unique, innovative and/or demonstrative of forward-looking product strategies.” Per Gartner, solutions in the ICES category, where Perception Point is recognized, “go beyond simply blocking known bad content and providing in-line prompts to users that can help reinforce security awareness training, as well as providing detection of compromised internal accounts.” The full report can be found here.
In addition, the report highlighted the new attack path of malicious actors leveraging collaboration tools such as Microsoft Teams and Slack for phishing and malware distribution and the ability of several vendors, including Perception Point, to filter malicious content or suspicious interactions in these channels.
Perception Point is designed to fully replace legacy SEGs (Secured Email Gateways) as enterprises migrate to the cloud and increasingly leverage cloud collaboration, even more so, as they adopt remote working. The cloud-native next-gen email security service addresses the rapidly evolving threat landscape, intercepting all content-based attacks across all collaboration channels, including email, cloud storage, cloud apps, messaging platforms and APIs. Perception Point was awarded the top overall ranking in the latest SE Labs Independent testing report, ranking #1 in detection rate, false-positive rate, and overall accuracy rating.
“For the third year in a row, Gartner acknowledges that we are a Representative Vendors in email security and we are pleased to be included as a preferred ICES offering,” says Yoram Salinger, CEO of Perception Point. “Our next-gen prevention-as-a-service solution is protecting our customers at the speed, scale and accuracy that they require across their email and collaboration channels. Also, by having an integrated incident response service and 24X7 support, we supercharge their SOC teams and ensure that they receive the highest detection rates and lowest false positives.”
