Eradicating Endpoint Threats

The growth of disruptive attacks such as ransomware and the migration of more persistent attackers to fileless techniques have ushered in a new age for endpoint security tools, according to Gartner. The shift from locally managed endpoint security tools to cloud-delivered products has reduced the maintenance burden for customers, particularly as it relates to staying on top of the latest releases, Gartner said.

The integration of endpoint detection and response with up-front protection has brought threat hunting, incident response and better detection capabilities based on behavior modeling rather than indicators of compromise, Gartner found. Plus, endpoint security tools are increasingly providing application and device control, vulnerability and configuration management to harden the environment, Gartner said.

As part of Cybersecurity Week 2020, CRN spoke with eight cybersecurity vendors and solution providers about what to look for when choosing an endpoint security tool. From having the ability to remove agents and detect malicious scripting to leveraging heuristics to examine the behavior of machines rather than signature models, here are eight things companies need in an endpoint security tool.
