Barkly Named in Gartner Hype Cycle Reports

We are excited to share that Barkly was included in not one but two 2017 Gartner Hype Cycles- the Gartner Hype Cycle for Threat-Facing Technologies, 20171 and the Gartner Hype Cycle for Infrastructure Strategies, 20172. Gartner has listed Barkly as a Sample Vendor in the Hardware-Based Security category in both reports.

Gartner’s annual Hype Cycle provides a graphic representation of the maturity and adoption of technologies and applications, and how they are potentially relevant to solving real business problems and exploiting new opportunities. In the Gartner Hype Cycle for Threat-Facing Technologies, 2017 and the Gartner Hype Cycle for Infrastructure Strategies, 2017 contributing analysts Neil MacDonald and Martin Reynolds note Hardware-Based Security as an emerging technology, with mainstream adoption expected over the next five to ten years.

"We agree with Gartner on the tremendous potential of this market and the true benefits of hardware based security in the fight against modern attacks. Barkly’s patented RapidvisorTM allows us to see below the CPU to stop attacks at runtime while taking up less than 1% of CPU."

— Mike Duffy, CEO & co-founder of Barkly

“It’s an honor to be included in two Gartner hype cycles this year," said Barkly CEO Mike Duffy. "We believe it’s  a true validation of our unique approach to endpoint protection and the increasing marketplace demand.”
