Doubling Down On Detection
Enterprises have increasingly adopted bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies to provide employees with greater flexibility, and hackers have taken advantage of the change by targeting employees’ personal devices since they are often not properly secured. The growing use of remote location servers, smartphones and connected devices has also increased the likelihood of endpoint attacks or breaches.
Hackers can use laptops, smartphones or wearable devices to bypass a customer’s secured enterprise network, with Internet of Things, industrial control systems and smart sensors also attracting endpoint attacks. Companies with limited IT expertise are heavily adopting managed security services for real-time consultation to better understand new and unknown attacks.
The global endpoint security market is expected to grow at an compound annual growth rate of 8.2 percent over the next several years, going from $11.96 billion in 2019 to $22.4 billion by 2027, according to Fortune Business Insights. The rising adoption of connected devices and IoT across several industries in North America is boosting demand for endpoint and managed security in the area.
As part of CRN’s annual Security 100 list, here’s a look at 20 endpoint and managed security companies that are identifying and neutralizing evasive threats, preventing attacks on servers, responding to IaaS and SaaS vulnerabilities, and accelerating business recovery from cyberattacks.
