The endpoint security market continues to mature and change at an increasingly rapid rate in response to evolving attacker landscapes and customer needs. The capabilities of Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) offerings have expanded to include preventative measures such as next-gen antivirus (EPP) and extended detection and response across an organization’s environment (XDR). New vendors in the market have diversified the types of endpoint security offerings, creating a more complex competitive playing field for customers to navigate.
Microsoft Defender for Endpoint is an example of a relatively new entrant to the endpoint security arena that has continued making strides in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms (EPP). As a strategic partner, we’d like to extend our congratulations to Rob Lefferts and the Microsoft M365 Defender teams in their efforts building a market-leading endpoint security platform in the space of only 3 years. In our work so far with this crew, we’ve seen firsthand how Microsoft Defender for Endpoint paired with Red Canary MDR significantly improves customers’ security outcomes.
Given the choices now available in the market, we are seeing an emerging trend of customers moving from one EDR solution to another, often due to vendor consolidation and application rationalization. Vendors’ offerings span multiple solution types and are increasingly being bundled together. As organizations find themselves with redundant solutions, financial stakeholders are now influencing these change decisions, propelling many companies to move away from point-solutions.
Customers seeking to migrate their endpoint protection solution will find that the Red Canary platform provides vendor-neutral Managed Detection and Response (MDR). We also ensure that the transition is commercially seamless with our no-cost migration program.
As a security ally, we serve as a steady hand for our customers as they navigate the ever-dynamic endpoint security landscape, helping them achieve the best possible security outcomes.
