RSA Named a Leader in Gartner 2013 Magic Quadrant for Web Fraud Detection

I’m proud and excited to acknowledge that Gartner, Inc. has positioned RSA in the “Leaders” quadrant of the Gartner May 2013 Magic Quadrant for Web Fraud Detection.

My excitement comes because Gartner bases its analysis on completeness of vision and ability to execute, which we consider further confirmation that our customers see value in our solutions.

We believe our leadership position is a strong proof point of both RSA’s vision and the market’s perception of our execution as we aggressively drive our anti-fraud strategy, demonstrated by the acquisition of Silver Tail Systems as well as product innovations including recent iterations of RSA Adaptive Authentication and the launch of the RSA FraudAction  Anti-Rogue App Service.

We work every day to provide our customers with a “Defense in Depth” approach: all RSA web fraud detection solutions complement each other by covering the entire end user web experience in multiple channels and across all touch-points. Starting from external threat detection and mitigation to web site navigation anomaly detection to authentication and transaction monitoring, our solutions have our customers covered.  Our customers, and ultimately their end users, will be protected by an RSA solution in every step of their online experience — from shutting down attacks in the wild or detecting account takeovers, new account fraud during authentication or flagging suspicious transactions or behavior on their website.

EMC acquired Silver Tail Systems knowing they could add to our history of innovation and enhance protection for new use cases to the RSA Fraud & Risk Intelligence portfolio. Our customers see that RSA Silver Tail’s web intelligence and behavior analysis capabilities add a critical layer to our portfolio, allowing us to spot anomalous activities that would not otherwise be visible, including one of the hottest threats these days: application-level DDoS attacks.

We believe this recognition further validates RSA’s efforts to lead the industry in helping customers advance and transform their fraud detection and security capabilities through the innovative use of Big Data and Big Data analytics and also believe that  this acknowledgment of our Leadership position only strengthens market validation of RSA’s cutting-edge portfolio, and also reflects the influence of our savvy customers, who always push us to continue to innovate, execute better and transform our capabilities to provide greater defenses against fraud and threats.
