    Interesting that PaloAlto is ranked last on your report and yet they are a leader in the Gartner quadrant. Something's not right here.

      Thank you for your comment. We look to evaluate solutions based on the use case they best fit into because our client base ranges from small to mid-size organizations, and we find that using only a quadrant limits the breadth of product that could be a good fit for a specific organization’s requirements.
