DALLAS, January 17, 2024 Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704) announced further recognition today as Trend Micro was named a Leader in the latest Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ report. Trend Micro has been named a  Leader Eighteen times in a row, being recognized for the first time in 2002.

Kevin Simzer, COO at Trend: “Whether it’s a cloud workload, an on-premises server or a traditional PC, the endpoint is where business happens today. And for that reason, it’s also where threat actors congregate. That’s why we offer comprehensive endpoint threat protection, detection and response from a single platform—to boost security and compliance and reduce IT workload.’’

Trend Vision One™ – Endpoint Security goes beyond traditional endpoint security to offer protection for physical endpoints (including ATMs and PoS systems) alongside servers, cloud workloads and virtual machines. It blends this with extended detection and response (XDR) for proactive security, and third-party integration with threat intel, SIEM, orchestration, build pipeline, attack surface management, and other offerings.

As per the report, Gartner defines an endpoint protection platform (EPP) as security software designed to protect managed end-user endpoints — including desktop PCs, laptop PCs, and mobile devices — against known and unknown malicious attacks. Additionally, EPPs provide capabilities for security teams to investigate and remediate incidents that evade prevention controls. EPP products are delivered as software agents deployed to endpoints and connected to centralized security analytics and management interfaces.

Gartner describes Leaders as “Leaders demonstrate balanced and consistent progress and effort in relation to all Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision criteria. They have broad, tightly integrated workspace security capabilities; deep EDR functionality; and proven management capabilities for enterprise accounts. Increasingly, leaders provide vendor-managed MDR, ITDR and holistic XDR platforms that enable customers to consolidate their other tools and adopt a single-vendor solution. However, a Leader is not a default choice for every buyer. Clients should not assume that they must buy only from a Leader. Leaders may be less able to react quickly when Visionaries challenge the status quo in the market.’’
