Kaspersky was recently named as a Major Player in the IDC MarketScape reports for ‘Worldwide Modern Endpoint Security for Small and Midsize Businesses 2021 Vendor Assessment’ and ‘Worldwide Modern Endpoint Security for Enterprises 2021 Vendor Assessment’. The recognition is a testament to the breadth and quality of products, services, and training solutions that Kaspersky offers its corporate customers.
Modern Endpoint Security products comprise two detection and response mechanisms, differentiated by response time and human involvement. To help organisations evaluate the best endpoint protection platforms (EPP) and endpoint detection and response (EDR) solutions for their needs, the IDC MarketScape reviewed data submitted by MES vendors (22 SMEs and 19 enterprises) between April and September 2021, to position the capabilities of the companies.
According to the IDC MarketScape, “Capabilities of Kaspersky’s modern endpoint security product are very competitive with no material deficiencies.” The report also noted, “Kaspersky leverages its profitable operations to fuel product expansion and enhancement.”
“It has always been our mission to help our customers protect themselves from evolving threats. This recognition by the IDC MarketScape serves to underpin our work and the continued investment we make in our solutions to support businesses of all sizes. Every organisation has different needs when it comes to security and these comprehensive IDC MarketScape vendor evaluation reports provide an independent view on the solutions available, to help customers make their choice,” said Evgeniya Naumova, the Executive VP for Corporate Business at Kaspersky.
This makes Kaspersky well positioned to offer both SMBs and enterprises a natively integrated cross-product solution with an expanding and internally developed offerings.
