SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 22, 2014) - Beachhead Solutions, provider of cloud-managed mobile device security and data access control for businesses of all sizes, today announced that it has been cited by Gartner, Inc. in the Magic Quadrant for Mobile Data Protection (MDP) report.
Gartner, a leading information technology research and advisory company, included Beachhead Solutions in the Magic Quadrant Report as a Notable Vendor. Beachhead is the only pure play cloud service provider mentioned by Gartner in the report, which is available to Gartner subscribers here.
"Based on a small exposure scenario, the cost to mitigate a simple data breach will cost more than 70 times the original price to implement encryption," notes Gartner, Inc. in the Magic Quadrant for Mobile Data Protection, John Girard, September 8, 2014. In describing alternative technologies for small and midsized businesses, Gartner states: "Providers that offer cloud-based MDP as SaaS are an emerging choice in the MDP market, and have real advantages for SMBs that have limited resources and want to keep their IT infrastructure simple."
"We view our inclusion by Gartner in the Magic Quadrant reports as acknowledgment of our success serving the mobile data protection needs of SMBs and businesses of all sizes," said Jeff Rubin, VP, Strategy & Business Development. "SMBs require data security solutions that fit their budgets and IT resource constraints. Beachhead's platform requires no infrastructure to deploy or maintain. And, if the business prefers, the solution can be managed by an authorized MSP."
Beachhead offers cloud-based mobile data protection management services, with installation, maintenance and support handled remotely or available through a VAR.
