Intel Security positioned as a ‘Leader’ by Gartner in 2016 Endpoint Protection Platform Magic Quadrant for thirteenth consecutive year

The Gartner Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms (EPP) report is a vital tool in helping IT managers understand the market space and key solution providers.

According to Gartner, “40% of organizations said they already use a single vendor for several of these functions, or are actively consolidating products. In particular, mobile data protection is the leading complement to EPP, and purchasing decisions for the two products are increasingly made together”

Intel Security continues its position as a leader in Gartner’s 2016 Endpoint Protection Platform Magic Quadrant report. The Intel Security endpoint security portfolio adds a complete set of defense technologies to stop the full threat spectrum of advanced persistent threats, hacker attacks, ransomware or any other sophisticated attacks.  In addition to its full suite of protection capabilities, Intel Security also has leading edge detection and correction technologies that today’s organizations need to fully secure their endpoint infrastructures.

Intel Security’s endpoint security offers a complete set of protection technologies to address the entire threat defense lifecycle with an integrated, holistic approach. This year we continued to deliver against this approach with McAfee Endpoint Security 10 and Active Response.

Endpoint Security 10 communicates with multiple endpoint defense technologies in real time to analyze and collaborate against new and advanced threats blocking and quickly halting them before they impact endpoint systems or users. Built with collaboration in mind, its framework helps remove duplicate technologies and connect other Intel or third-party solutions to enable simpler management and stronger defenses.  The combination of the protection framework with McAfee Global Threat Intelligence ensures strong and effective performance with fast scans, small threat update files, low impact to network operations, maximized CPU use, and protection effectiveness that is proven in third party tests. The ePO management platform provides industry leading security management for Intel Security’s security products as well as integration with over 130 third-party applications.

Intel Security unifies Protect, Detect, and Correct through the McAfee ePO platform into an adaptive feedback loop, enabling security to evolve and learn in an iterative cycle that improves over time. McAfee Active Response is the Detect and Correct component of this threat defense lifecycle, helping organizations identify compromises more effectively and implement quick remediation. McAfee Active Response expands visibility into your endpoints so you can quickly identify security breaches and threats. It simplifies remote investigations and enables incident response teams to focus on the most significant security activities.

“Our position as a leader in the Endpoint Magic Quadrant for thirteen straight years demonstrates that our endpoint protection solutions continue to lead the industry and provide our customers with comprehensive technologies to protect, detect, and correct across their entire endpoint infrastructure” said Candace Worley, Vice President of Enterprise Solution Marketing.
