The Drivers Behind The Report
It’s been more than a long time since Gartner described endpoint protection and in the resulting years — especially over the previous two years — Comodo has watched real changes affecting all activities of the 20-year-old endpoint security market. Some factors that made Comodo accept and believe the requirement for a new and novel approach of definition which includes the following
Vendors have constrained their ability to change quickly and easily by including new features year after year that are not any more successful against present day malware threats, for example, current day ransomware attacks.
A similar legacy sellers harboured their clients to expensive on-premises, hardware based arrangements that are not considered important with the present day advancement in cloud computing and SaaS models.
Endpoint detection and Response (EDR) and security solutions were observed as discrete items.
Progressions in security advancements, for example, machine learning and behavioural examination have decreased the requirement for legacy security features like antivirus signatures.
Various new merchants have entered the market with “point” arrangements that comprehend a restricted bit of the issue however don’t meet the more extensive criteria of a full endpoint protection system.
Consolidating administrations, similar to threat chasing, with innovation arrangements which has demonstrated compelling solutions in guarding against complex assaults that are winding up progressively common.
Real Changes and Recommendations From Comodo
The report recognises important changes in the EPP market and offers suggestions for security and risk administration pioneers as they assess a huge crowd of sellers. A synopsis of these are as per the following:
Conventional features have been dropped: DLP, MDM and particular security for servers were removed from the EPP definition.
EDR is presently part of the suite: Comodo reasoned that EDR has seen expanded selection because of the acknowledgement that it’s unrealistic to completely obstruct 100% of malware attacks. Comodo is presently making the combination of behavioural and machine learning procedures for counteractive action, detection and reaction, as a vital approach.
More value on managed searches: Companies are to include managed searches whenever possible. This can expand internal security methods, paying little respect to a company’s size, complexity or staff assets.
Less value on versatile and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI): The clients search for solutions intended to protect both MacOS and Windows. They do not consider VDI, servers and mobile anymore, as a key buying criteria for EPP.
Moving to the cloud is urgent: This refers to various efficiencies around both risk viability and regulatory overhead that can be accomplished by opting EPP sellers that offer cloud-based platforms.
