The Future of Endpoint Security Through a Microsoft Lens: Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection
This IDC Market Perspective shows the future of endpoint security through a Microsoft lens. Enterprise networks and technologies are evolving at a breakneck pace, delivering countless benefits for businesses but also introducing an array of new security gaps. Accordingly, endpoint security is becoming increasingly important on its own right and also in the context of broader enterprise network security plans. The next generation of endpoint security solutions must be integrated and intelligent. While endpoint security vendors rush to meet market demands, Microsoft has introduced its own next-generation endpoint security solution. Microsoft represents a newer entrant to the endpoint security market — one with extensive insight and existing expertise to leverage. For insight into the future of the endpoint security market, IDC considers the Microsoft Defender ATP solution, Microsoft's strategy and plans, and competitive responses.
"Endpoint security is set for another evolutionary stage. The introduction of new and advanced endpoint protection and response capabilities by Microsoft holds potential to reshape the competitive landscape," says Chris Rodriguez, research manager, Network Security Products and Strategies.
