A Fresh Perspective to Assess Trellix’s Market Leadership

I’ve led Analyst Relations programs in the cybersecurity space for almost a decade. During this tenure, I’ve directly contributed to hundreds of vendor assessment reports, such as Gartner Magic Quadrants, Forrester Waves, IDC MarketScapes, and Frost & Sullivan Radars among others. These are reports that provide a graphical competitive positioning based on the vendor’s strategic vision and their business and technological execution based on 12 months of research prior to the report being published.

What if a customer needs a more current evaluation of products to shortlist vendors?

The analytical firms generally update these reports once a year. In average, the analytical firms take between 3-4 months to conduct the research and analysis required to complete these evaluations. One of the main challenges is that these evaluations are static for 12 months as the research methodologies do not allow updates when market conditions or a vendor’s business and technological execution have changed drastically after the publication of the last edition of the report.

To present a current reflection of market conditions, the vendor’s strategic vision, and business and technological execution, some firms have implemented peer review programs (e.g. Gartner Peer Insights, InfoTech Software Reviews) to offer end-users a complementary and more current - representation of vendors based on reviews of real-world implementation of product capabilities from peers. It takes up to 3 business days for these analytical firms to process and publish a review, providing a more accurate representation of the vendors than static evaluation reports.

At Trellix, we believe customers should not rely only on these vendor assessment reports. They should consider the collective analysis from industry reports, peer review assessments, and other sources such as lab tests and company announcements to allow for a more holistic and objective representation of vendors at any moment in time.

What are the most current sources that demonstrate Trellix’s Leadership in the market?

January 2023 marked the one-year anniversary of the formation of Trellix. Considering the 12–15-month publication cycle of the analytical firm’s vendor assessment reports, the table below summarizes Trellix’s accomplishments from the last 12 months, structured according to the analytical firm's evaluation dimensions, to help our customers and partners assess Trellix’s true leadership in the market today.
