Be it due to increasingly sophisticated cyber-attacks, high cost pressure or strict legal guidelines such as the EU Data Protection Regulation or the new IT Security Act – IT security stands alongside cloud computing, big data, social business and mobile enterprise as one of the topics to which the ITC is currently paying most attention. According to the Experton Group’s Security Vendor Benchmark 2016 the IT security market will grow by about seven per cent in the coming year. By 2020 analysts expect security expenses to rise up to 6.5 billion euros. This corresponds to an average annual growth of seven percent.
Retarus confirmed as “Product Challenger”
In its annual survey the Experton Group examined the offerings of 138 service providers who currently play an important role on the security market. In Experton’s Security Vendor Benchmark 2016 Retarus has immediately achieved inclusion in the quadrant “Product Challenger” being positioned as one of the strongest cloud service providers in the category “E-Mail / Web / Collaboration Security”. Following Gartner, Experton is the second analyst firm to positively rate Retarus’ services: Just recently, Gartner has listed the company as “Sample Vendor” of Cloud Fax Services.
Wide range of email and web security services on offer
Experton’s analysts were not only convinced by the wide range of email and web security services on offer, but also by the provision of services from European – and especially from German – data centers, as well as by Retarus’ strong position amongst the numerous global players active on the highly competitive security market.
