  • Omdia named Avanan as a Leader in Email Security
  • Omdia praised Avanan for its “product capabilities, favorable user experience reviews, and its technology vision.”
  • Check Point’s acquisition of Avanan further strengthens its email security offering
  • Integrating Avanan into Check Point will bolster the Harmony and Infinity products

In a new report, Omdia named Avanan as a leader in the email security space. The report praises Avanan’s technological capabilities and singles out Avanan as a “special case” due to its ability to claim the “status of a fully-fledged email security platform (i.e. one that can replace an SEG and a non-SEG as the sole provider of inbox security for Office 365 or Gmail). Further, Check Point’s acquisition of Avanan was highlighted, noting that the addition “into Harmony should position Check Point as a stronger WFH security contender” due to the fact that Harmony now “secures remote workers, their devices, and their data, with protection from malicious files, URLs, and phishing across email, collaboration suites, web, network, and endpoint.”

The report further details the value of the Avanan product, including its ability to protect email and collaboration apps, its function as a last line of defense to catch what others miss and the value of the acquisition by Check Point.
