Trend Micro: Leader
Trend Micro, based in Tokyo, is one of the largest enterprise protection platform vendors on the Gartner list. The company was named a leader for EPP, Gartner said, because of its appeal to a wide variety of buyers, calling its Smart Protection Suite "one of the most complete, integrated packaging of protection technologies in this market." Gartner also praised Trend Micro's investment in application control, vulnerability detection and shielding, malware sandboxing, and endpoint detection and response. The company also has made investments in next-generation IPS and network security with its October acquisition of HP TippingPoint.
