European Endpoint Security Market Update: Vendors Striving to Differentiate While COVID-19 Drives Transformation
This IDC Market Perspective provides an update on the European endpoint security market, including: impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the endpoint security market; the rollout of endpoint detection and response (EDR) tools to extend capabilities beyond those of the core endpoint protection platforms (EPP); trends and developments in the EDR and managed detection and response (MDR) spaces; dealing with complexity and limited headcounts; making the most of threat intelligence and analytics; and current key players in the market.
"European organizations are striving to consolidate endpoint protection components to simplify operations and management. Unified platforms continue to represent the greatest enterprise opportunity, with native integrations for EDR tools a compelling addition. Extensive customer bases and infrastructure also enable increased telemetry that, along with partnerships with other market players, promises enriched threat intelligence and proactive protection to customer endpoints. Nevertheless, security headcounts remain constrained, and it is crucial that vendors tailor their offerings, both solutions and services, to provide their clients with maximum benefit and minimum management burden." — Research Manager Mark Child, IDC European Security
