February 2015 by Marc Jacob
Novell announces that Forrester Research has cited Novell as a strong performer in its recent report, The Forrester WaveTM: Endpoint Encryption, Q1 2015. Novell was among the select companies that Forrester invited to participate in its Q1 2015 Forrester Wave report, Endpoint Encryption, in which Novell ZENworks received its highest marks for customer references and cost. After primary research, Forrester analysts included Novell in its final list of vendors for the Forrester Wave based on: 1) product fit; 2) customer success; and 3) Forrester client demand.
According to Forrester, Novell’s customers reported an overall high level of satisfaction with the Novell ZENworks Suite because of its ease of use and strong product support. Novell offers endpoint encryption as either a standalone product or integrated component to its overall ZENworks IT management suite. Forrester comments that customers of both will enjoy seamless integration between the two from both a management and a policy point of view.
In February 2014, Novell announced the new Novell ZENworks suite, which includes improved scale and performance, along with new features and additional security layers, making ZENworks one of the most comprehensive, reliable solutions available.
“We are proud and honored to be named as a strong performer in the Q1 2015 Forrester Wave for Endpoint Encryption,” said Eric Varness, vice president of product management and marketing for Novell. “We are always working to enhance our customers’ abilities to manage, protect, audit and report on their complex device fleets. We believe that Forrester’s inclusion of the Novell ZENworks Suite in its Forrester Wave report is industry validation that we are meeting and surpassing customer demand for all-inclusive endpoint management.”
The Novell ZENworks Suite enables enterprise IT to easily oversee configuration management, software asset management, IT service management and endpoint security management in one offering. This latest solution offers an all-encompassing suite to replace all existing ZENworks suite/bundled options, and it includes additional and enhanced security features, earning Novell a spot, based on specific selection criteria, in the highly regarded Forrester Wave report for Endpoint Encryption.
