IBM Named a Leader For Security Solution in Gartner Magic Quadrant

leave a comment »

IBM announced that Gartner, Inc. named the company as a leader in Application Security Testing (AST) in the recently published Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing which analyzes vendors’ Static, Dynamic and Interactive Application Security Testing styles.

IBM has been named a leader by Gartner in Application Security Testing in four consecutive reports.

According to Gartner, IBM Security was recognized for its completeness of vision and ability to execute. As part of its AST portfolio, IBM has also added innovative Static Application Security Testing functionality to improve accuracy with Intelligent Code Analytics (ICA) and Intelligent Finding Analytics (IFA), both of which are delivered via the cloud to on-premises and cloud clients.

IBM’s Application Security Management platform gives businesses a risk-centric unified reporting dashboard with a complementary framework to manage security risks in applications across business operations.

IBM Security’s Application Security Testing solutions including IBM Security AppScan and IBM Application Security on Cloud, provide preemptive protection for mobile and web-based applications.

According to Gartner, “Security testing is growing faster than any other security market, as AST solutions adapt to new development methodologies and increased application complexity. Security and risk management leaders must integrate AST into their application security programs.”

IBM Continues Middleware Leadership (And Tiger’s Master’s Opening Round Tee Time)

leave a comment »

It’s Tuesday of Master’s week.  I caught a couple of the interviews from the media room today.  Tiger was looking very confident, but so were Phil and Rory.

I’m really digging Golf Central’s “Live from the Masters” coverage, and looking forward even more to seeing a new feature from AT&T U-Verse this year, whereby they will be following “featured” groups of golfers on individual dedicated channels.

Guess who I hope to follow?  Tiger, of course, who’s paired up with Spain’s Miguel Angel Jimenez (“The most interesting man in the world…!”) and Sang-Moon Bae, South Korea’s 25 year-old golfing wunderkind, 10:35 EST on Thursday.  Hmm, do I have any conference calls then??

Yesteday, some good news from Gartner.  They announced that based on their definition of middleware IBM has once again been named the overall marketshare leader in middleware software.

The rankings are based on total worldwide revenue for 2011 and mark the eleventh consecutive year of leadership for IBM.

According to the report, IBM was the leading software vendor with 32.1 percent market share, extending its lead to nearly double that of its closest competitor.

According to Gartner, IBM grew 12.4 percent in 2011, faster than the overall market. The worldwide application infrastructure and middleware software market grew 9.9 percent to $19.4 billion, according to Gartner.

Besides its overall lead, according to the Gartner report, IBM holds the number one market share position in key sub-markets growing faster then the overall IT market.

For example, the Business Process Management Suite (BPMS) segment grew at 11.2 percent in 2011, Gartner said. IBM was named the number one vendor in BPMS software with a 27.1 percent share; almost triple that of its closest competitor. BPMS software enables companies to develop and implement processes that help their businesses be more agile and grow.

Gartner reported that IBM continues to be number one in other growing and key areas including the Enterprise Service Bus Suites, Message Oriented Middleware Market, the Transaction Processing Monitor market and Integration Appliances.

Gartner also reported double digit growth by IBM for the Portal Products and User Interaction segment IBM’s continued market share leadership in middleware has been a key reason for the company’s strong growth.

Coming back to the Master’s, I’ll hope to add some more color before fleeing for the wilds of West Texas on Friday for my annual “gun camp” trip with some good friends.
