Perception Point Recognized in 2021 Gartner Market Guide for Email Security Report for Third Year in a Row

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.”
