SentryBay included as a Sample Vendor under VDI/DaaS Endpoint Security in 2021 Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Endpoint Security Report

August 26, 2021

SentryBay is included as a Sample Vendor in the Gartner® Hype Cycle for EndpointSecurity, 2021* under the VDI/DaaS Endpoint Security category.

On the Hype Cycle Priority Matrix, Gartner describes VDI/DaaS Endpoint Security as an ‘On the Rise’ category. Gartner wrote: “The globalCOVID-19 pandemic has been a catalyst for an increase in the use of virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and desktop as a service (DaaS). Security concerns have arisen around the user identity of the person actually viewing the connection, the recording of virtual sessions and the risk of having sessions hijacked. As such, a new security software area is emerging that helps prevent and counteract these activities”.

Dave Waterson, CEO at SentryBay, said: “We believe that it is fantastic to be listed in the Gartner Hype Cycle, and we recognise the importance of being a Sample Vendor in this particular category. Over the past eighteen months, we have witnessed a mass enterprise exodus to VDI which meets demands for remote access but is not fool proof when it comes to the security of unmanaged devices. Our solution is designed to armour the VDI to ensure business critical applications and data are fully protected against cyber risk.”
