Recently, technology research firm Gartner released the 2019 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for EDR (Endpoint Detection and Response). According to Gartner, this recognition is awarded by end-user responses, rather than through Gartner’s evaluation standards, via their reviews and their overall user ratings on the Gartner website.
The 2019 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for EDR provide, in Gartner’s words, “solutions that record and store endpoint-system-level behaviors, use various data analytics techniques to detect suspicious system behavior, provide contextual information, block malicious activity, and provide remediation suggestions to restore affected systems.”
Ken Davis, executive vice president of Products and Services at Gartner, said previously of the Peer Insights: “We work hard to ensure that all of the reviews are submitted by an IT professional or business user who has had experience purchasing, implementing and/or using the enterprise solution they are reviewing — free from conflicts of interest.”
Additionally, the 2019 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice Vendors for EDR must provide threat detection, containment, investigation, and remediation.
