The State of Endpoint and Application Security (Includes Video)

I had a terrific week at RSA, meeting and talking with many of the world’s leading endpoint security and application security vendors. Every year, RSA provides a unique opportunity to take a fresh look at new and existing vendors, through in-person meetings with technical and marketing leaders, and checking out messaging through booths, signage, and materials.

The Convergence of Endpoint Security

As adversaries continue to be more aggressive and more targeted in their attack techniques, security teams are continuously challenged to implement more comprehensive endpoint protection strategies to keep up. Next-generation security vendors like Carbon Black, CrowdStrike, and Cylance have set the agenda, delivering integrated prevention, detection, and response platforms leveraging the cloud and a single agent. Established endpoint players like Symantec, Trend Micro, and Sophos have quickly responded, delivering integrated solutions leveraging both cloud and a common agent. ESG research shows that 77% of companies surveyed plan to move to an integrated security suite with a preference towards a single vendor, with an even split between companies who are looking to next-gen providers and those looking to the large, established security players.
