Gartner-EPP-CompIn order to end modern ransomware campaigns, supply chain attacks, and insider threats, security teams need better visibility, protection and response across their enterprise.

An EPP is a solution deployed on endpoint devices to prevent file-based/fileless malware, malicious scripts and memory-based threats. 

It is also deployed to detect and block malicious activity from trusted and untrusted applications, and to provide the investigation and remediation capabilities needed to dynamically respond to security incidents and alerts.

This report profiles EDR technology providers, as the majority of technology providers in this market now offer combined advanced EPP/EDR security suites:


Consult this report to:

    • Develop and focus on the sale of cloud-delivered EPP solutions to target the increasing shift to cloud-native SaaS-delivered solutions.
    • Expand your portfolio to include full-featured prevention and detection and response solutions to satiate buyer needs.
    • Position XDR capabilities natively or through partnerships to compete with or gain advantage over your peers.
    • Invest in vulnerability and configuration management guidance and eventually BAS to provide more guidance on hardening, particularly for the mainstream SMB market.
