The 22 Best Endpoint Security Vendors and Solutions for 2022

Best Endpoint Security Vendors

Solutions Review’s listing of the best endpoint security vendors and solutions is an annual look into the software providers included in our Buyer’s Guide and Solutions Directory. Our editors gathered this information via online materials, reports, product demonstrations, conversations with vendor representatives, and free trial examinations.

Endpoint security occupies an exciting space in the cybersecurity market. The traditional digital perimeter—the former prime area of protection for endpoint security software—no longer exists. Identity and authentication have now almost wholly subsumed the perimeter of enterprise IT environments. Yet, the typical IT environment has grown far beyond what any expert could have predicted even a few years ago. Not only are more enterprises migrating to the cloud and facing the security issues that come with the subsequent decentralization, but they are also expanding the endpoints connecting to their networks.

Endpoint security solutions have to provide more than antivirus capabilities, though. These solutions must also extend visibility over mobile and IoT devices, scan for dwelling threats on devices through endpoint detection and response (EDR), and control how data can move both into and out of your network and within its various databases. To help companies find and implement the best endpoint security vendors and software, the editors at Solutions Review have compiled this list of the best endpoint security vendors in the marketplace worth knowing about in 2022 and beyond.

Note: Companies are listed in alphabetical order.
