This IDC MarketScape includes vendors that create and sell software in the client virtualization space, with a focus on centralized virtual desktops, distributed virtual desktops, and virtual user session (VUS) software. Vendors that only offer user state virtualization and/or software products that support virtual client computing deployments but not one of the aforementioned products will not be included in the IDC MarketScape graphic or profiles. This is because these types of solutions address a specific or niche need in the market but do not, by themselves, provide a complete software solution that an end customer can purchase on a standalone basis or in addition to a Microsoft Server version.

UW-Superior’s IT team was looking to replace their outdated intrusion prevention system. After a full evaluation of AlienVault’s Unified Security Management™ (USM) platform, they decided to leverage it to meet their IDS needs. As the team became familiar with using AlienVault USM as their intrusion detection system, they began to implement the other tools that make up the USM platform. They realized that because so many security features were already included in USM, like behavioral monitoring, SIEM and vulnerability assessment, they would not have to purchase additional security tools that they previously thought they would need.

Mimecast has seen firsthand that not all email security systems perform equally well. But, until now, we’ve lacked the comparative data to prove our perceptions. In order to address this head-on, Mimecast has launched the Email Security Risk Assessment (ESRA). The Mimecast ESRA has three goals:
1. To test the Mimecast cloud security service against an individual organization’s incumbent email security system. To help the organization understand the relative efficacy of the security systems and to see the number, type and severity of email-borne threats that are currently getting into the organization.
2. To inform the security industry with hard data on the effectiveness of various commonly-deployed email security systems.
3. To inform the security industry with hard data regarding the number, type and severity of email-borne threats that are being actively used in attacks.
