This IDC TechBrief discusses the benefits of self-healing incident recovery and how it provides a valuable safety net in endpoint security.
"Time is a precious and finite resource in the battle against cyberthreats," according to Michael Suby, research vice president, IDC's Security and Trust. "Despite even the best endpoint security strategies and tools, there is no guarantee that endpoints will not be compromised. And once they are compromised, time is required to discover and respond. What are your alternatives? Self-healing incident recovery is an alternative worthy of evaluation as it allows you to turnback time on compromised endpoints and return them to a clean state with ease. But not all endpoint security suites have this feature, so check with your vendor. In this IDC TechBrief, we identified five endpoint security vendors that do offer this feature: Malwarebytes, McAfee, SentinelOne, Trend Micro, and Webroot."
