Visibility, Response, and Private Infrastructure Protection: Why Cybereason is a 2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ Leader

The news continues to reverberate around the industry: Gartner, Inc. has named Cybereason a Leader in the 2022 Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms. We believe this achievement is a testament to our ability to protect our customers from cyberattacks that our competitors regularly miss.

Positioning in the Magic Quadrant is determined by evaluations of participating security vendors against two axis - completeness of vision and ability to execute. In this blog, we will reflect on what we believe this recognition means to our customers and those considering Cybereason as a trusted partner in defending their organizations from the most sophisticated cyber threats.

Visibility & Response

Information overload remains the primary contributor to the problems of alert fatigue, staff burnout, slow response times, and uninvestigated detections. Cybereason’s primary differentiator is the ability to consolidate alerts into a single malicious operation — what Cybereason calls a MalOp™. Whereas other vendors alert dozens of times for a single intrusion, the Cybereason MalOp Detection Engine stitches together the separate components of an attack, including all users, devices, identities, and network connections, into a comprehensive, contextualized attack story.

Correlation occurs across all suspicions to connect the behaviors of a threat into a single operation. The MalOp then populates response playbooks tailored to address all aspects of a given threat, enabling over-burdened analysts to end a malicious operation with a single click.

Private Infrastructure Protection

Cybereason is globally minded, and we address global challenges, like the need for secure Private Infrastructure (PIP). Where many others offer limited or no support for on-premises deployments, Cybereason understands that IT environments are diverse and varied, with no standard boilerplate to a network structure. 

There are many good reasons not to commit fully to a public cloud for all IT needs. Many organizations maintain at least a portion of their environment as private infrastructure. 

For example, more and more mid-sized organizations are finding that the savings promised by cloud providers in cost and complexity do not materialize, particularly for steady and predictable demand patterns. In addition, many government and highly regulated organizations must keep parts of their IT infrastructure on-premises for compliance and security needs. Another driver of on-prem infrastructures is regional-specific laws and regulations, such as the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

As a result, more and more teams find themselves in a hybrid environment setup, keeping one foot in the public cloud for nonessentials and one foot in a private cloud for mission-critical IT.

For these and other reasons, the on-premises IT stack is in a Renaissance period, with many large and heavily regulated organizations keeping more data and operations under the same roof. Virtualization and containers have made local assets more efficient than ever. This newfound productivity means that physical IT assets will always make up an important portion of the network configuration.

This is why Cybereason has focused on universal deployment options for any endpoint, data source, and configuration:

  • Private Cloud
  • Public Cloud
  • Hybrid Environment
  • On-Premises Data Center
  • Air-Gapped Environments
  • Specialized, Niche IT Systems
  • Legacy OS
  • Standard OS - Windows, Mac, Linux
