Recently, technology research firm Gartner released the 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Endpoint Security and Protection Software. 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.
Executive vice president of Products and Services at Gartner Ken Davis has said of the Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice Recognition: “Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice is designed to help IT professionals make better purchase decisions by leveraging the knowledge and feedback by fellow verified end users.”
