Gartner recently announced the vendors selected to its 2020 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR). Gartner named seven vendors in its list: SentinelOne, CrowdStrike, Malwarebytes, Microsoft, Broadcom (Symantec), Kaspersky, and VMware Carbon Black. According to Gartner, it bases its Peer Insights Customers’ Choice on customer feedback and ratings, taking into account both the number of reviews and the overall user ratings of verified end-users. Gartner maintains rigorous criteria for recognizing vendors with a high customer satisfaction rate.
Gartner defines EDR as “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.” Further, it notes four primary capabilities in EDR: security incident detection, incident containment at the endpoint, security incident investigation, and remediation guidance.
