Gartner Announces Gartner Peer Insights Customers' Choice Recognition for Meeting Solutions

Gartner (News - Alert), Inc. announced today the 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers' Choice for Meeting Solutions (Web Conferencing). The Peer Insights Customers' Choice is a recognition of vendors in this market by verified end-user professionals, taking into account both the number of end-user reviews and the overall user ratings.

The Meeting Solutions (Web Conferencing) market is primarily composed of purpose-built appliances for securing enterprise corporate networks. Products must be able to support single-enterprise firewall deployments and large and/or complex deployments, including branch offices, multitiered demilitarized zones (DMZs) and, increasingly, the option to include virtual versions for the data center.

"Gartner Peer Insights Customers' Choice is designed to help IT professionals make better purchase decisions by leveraging the knowledge and feedback by fellow verified end users," said Ken Davis, executive vice president of Products and Services at Gartner. "We work hard to ensure that all of the reviews are submitted by an IT professional or business user who has had experience purchasing, implementing and/or using the enterprise solution they are reviewing - free from conflicts of interest."

The list of companies selected for the 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers' Choice for Meeting Solutions is included in Table 1. More information on the 2018 Customers' Choice is available at https://www.gartner.com/reviews/customers-choice/meeting-solutions-web-conferencing.

  • In markets where more than seven vendors meet the above criteria, the seven vendors with the highest number of published reviews within the submission period will be recognized.
