Forrester names ESET a "Strong Performer" in endpoint security suites

Reflecting on the recent recognition of ESET as a “Strong Performer” in The Forrester Wave™: Endpoint Security Suites, Q3 2019, we believe the report brings to the forefront how the efforts of ESET researchers have positively impacted the development of ESET’s technologies and security products, as well as the continued protection of ESET’s customers. We believe that our approach stands out in the following ways:

1. ESET uses multilayered technologies that go far beyond the capabilities of basic antivirus.

This refers to the advanced layers of defense built into ESET security products such as ESET Ransomware Shield, Advanced Memory Scanner, Advanced Machine Learning and ESET UEFI Scanner – the first of its kind to detect a UEFI rootkit in the wild called LoJax. ESET’s machine-learning engine recently detecteda new malicious launcher belonging to the Winnti Group on computers at Hong Kong universities.

*Forrester gave ESET the highest possible score in the malicious behavior protection criterion.

2. ESET now offers a full portfolio of enterprise offerings.

Mature security operations center (SOC) teams at enterprises require increasingly mature tools to protect their networks. ESET has developed a wide range of products to protect entire corporate networks, covering operating systems from Windows, Linux, macOS, Android, iOS or Lotus Domino on to offering protection for endpoints and servers, as well as encryption and two-factor authentication solutions.

For more advanced protection and detection capabilities, ESET also offers advanced cloud-sandboxing detection via ESET Dynamic Threat Defense, endpoint detection and response via ESET Enterprise Inspector and threat intelligence via ESET Threat Intelligence Data Feeds. By offering such a broad spectrum of products and services, ESET backs SOC teams with the advanced protection and increased visibility they need.

3. ESET continues its active contribution to important knowledge bases such as MITRE ATT&CK™.

MITRE ATT&CK has been an important initiative to collect open source data on threat actors and the tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) they are using to penetrate your security defenses. As part of furthering this worthy goal, ESET Research has contributedseveral previously unknown techniques and procedures to the knowledge base, one of the most recent being DePriMon, the first example of a malware using the Port Monitorstechnique ever to be publicly described.

Consistently working together with the security community for over 30 years demonstrates a strong and authentic commitment from ESET to help everyone enjoy their technology safely.
