It’s a benefit to know who’s who among the leading businesses in any industry that you find to be important — especially when it’s important to you or your own business. As it happens, there is a “Who’s Who” of such in endpoint protection. Gartner’s Magic Quadrant, an assessment that measures and compares exceptional progress in the world of enterprise security, has named its favorites for 2021. Of the hundreds of vendors and platforms out there, there are only so many that can prove to meet the metrics of true innovation for the future of cybersecurity; thankfully, you can find them all below.
Bitdefender’s enterprise security platform has impressed users over the past year with their easy configurations and their strong compatibility with older systems. Where other platforms are geared specifically toward new networks and computers, Bitdefender has no such issue. End users have had to fine-tune for false positives of different alerts, but all in all, GravityZone is considered an impressive product.
SentinelOne, a company designed by professionals with knowledge of all kinds of cyber attacks, has proven another leader on the Gartner Magic Quadrant for endpoint protection platforms, offering strong performance for all types of users with varying needs in the industry. They boast “unrivaled API” and have an intelligent, clean user interface and experience that has proven to be a game changer for numerous enterprises worldwide.
McAfee Endpoint Security
A regularly trusted name in antivirus and cyber security as a whole, McAfee is a company who emphasizes the goal of working together with users to create secure networks. They provide services for those dealing with data insecurity or file corruption as a result of endpoint security issues, and many are able to enjoy the safety of their new network situation thanks to McAfee’s in-depth protection. Just keep in mind, the frequency of version updates are a bit hard to keep up with for smaller enterprises and regional businesses.
Eliminating security concerns early on and monitoring activity with a comparably low CPU usage, BlackBerry Protect (formerly Cylance Protect) is a winner with those who value their data but want to ensure their platform receives frequent updating. Accidental blacklisting is difficult to correct and whitelist as a fix, but apart from this, no in-depth training has proven necessary for the numerous users who put their trust and their enterprise in the hands of BlackBerry.
Symantec Endpoint Protection
Symantec, now acquired by the celebrated software and semiconductor developer Broadcom, has offered Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) to enterprises globally as a solution for securely operating with a sensitive network. While some users who enjoyed stellar customer service from SEP saw the acquisition as a sign of change, there’s many who still enjoy SEP’s chief features, such as threat alerts and the ability to safely interact without worry of breaches.
Check Point (Harmony Endpoint)
Users that have bought into Check Point Software Technologies understand and celebrate their goal: to bring all antivirus and protective softwares behind “one pane of glass”. The idea that one can read and analyze the complete picture of their endpoint protection so readily is an attractive one indeed, and it may well be worth the complaint that the complexity of the platform isn’t suitable for everyone. Regardless, it’s a powerful tool, and the majority sing its praises!
VMware Carbon Black
Strongly improving the visibility of endpoints network-wide and offering the utmost in malware detection and high-fidelity alerts, Carbon Black is part of VMware’s dynasty that has brought them multiple years in a row as Magic Quadrant leaders in the industry of cyber security. There may be some deployment and installation issues, depending on your chosen browser and file management systems, but regardless, Carbon Black is hailed as an MVP in enterprise security.
Fortinet is a dedicated company that offers FortiEDR and FortiClient for differing needs in endpoint protection. However, its strongest offering, FortiEDR, has expanded its usefulness to cloud infrastructures and has made it easier than ever for scaling businesses to make improvements to their approach without the need of a new protection platform solution.
Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business
Praised for their support teams in times of need, Kaspersky is a company whose endpoint protection platform has kept clients happy and their enterprises safe for years. While some may argue the newest updates are cumbersome and utilize a lot more memory than they should, the outcomes — that is, the high end protection from outside threats — are what’s made Kaspersky a winning provider of such services for businesses everywhere.
Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP)
Cisco’s focus on technological advancements, from networking to security, make them a great candidate for the type of protection tools users want. Cisco Advanced Malware Protection, also known as Cisco AMP, is a strong solution that runs quietly in the background as a silent protector against cyber threats. Keep in mind, though, that updates and other deployments require rebooting, and that the sensors sometimes find false positives.
Trend Micro Apex One
With insanely user-friendly products and a low to medium impact on the performance of computers for the security they offer, Trend Micro’s endpoint protection platform ranks high as one of the strong contenders for users in need of a solution that keeps their costs low and their efficacy high. One complaint of users is the need for the platform to become a more consolidated product, but plenty of them agree — Apex One is getting better all the time.
