Gartner names Trend Micro leader in endpoint protection platforms

03 Sep 2019

Cybersecurity solutions provider Trend Micro announced that it has been named a Leader in Gartner’s 2019 Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms in evaluation of its Apex One endpoint security solution.

Trend Micro has been named a Leader in every Gartner Magic Quadrant for this category since 2002.

“We are delighted to once again be named a Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms,” says Trend Micro product marketing vice president Wendy Moore.

“Our Apex One solution redefined endpoint security by combining automated detection and response with a comprehensive range of threat defence capabilities, all available from a single agent.

From our perspective, this recognition is a testament to our commitment to innovation and performance in an ever-changing market.”

Apex One is powered by threat intelligence and leverages Trend Micro’s cross-generational layered approach to security, known as XGen, to apply the right threat defence technique at the right time.

Trend Micro’s comprehensive support for both current and legacy/out-of-support operating systems and global presence combined with localised support to help meet regional regulatory and technical needs are also strong offerings.

The endpoint is increasingly the frontline in the war against cyber-threats and IT teams are overwhelmed by the volume of alerts they must manage.

Following the launch of Apex One, Trend Micro has launched its XDR solution, becoming the first to offer detection and response capabilities integrated across email, network, endpoint, server and cloud workloads.

Earlier this year, Trend Micro launched Deep Security as a Service on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, enabling organisations to combine the benefits of security software-as-a-service (SaaS) with the convenience of consolidated cloud billing and usage-based, metered pricing.

The Deep Security as a Service solution provided Microsoft Azure customers with a fully hosted security management experience with rapid delivery of innovations.
