Symantec named best Endpoint Protection security vendor

Symantec is one of the world’s largest cybersecurity companies. Symantec’s security solutions provide millions of users against spam, malware and data loss, among other threats. For 16 years, Symantec has been considered a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant. In the latest Gartner research on Endpoint Protection leaves Symantec far behind its competitors.

The security landscape is changing at lightning speed and cybercriminals are getting smarter. This makes good endpoint security crucial to help organizations detect (un)known threats. Many companies do not have their endpoint security in place, making them especially susceptible to cyber attacks. For these companies, it is only a matter of time before they fall victim to a security breach that could have serious consequences. Consider the reputational damage or huge costs that such a leak could entail.

When it comes to security, SMBs need just as strong endpoint security as large organizations. Symantec’s most advanced and fully featured endpoint security solutions protect business and personal devices and applications on the corporate network. Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP), a key component of Symantec’s Cyber Defense Platform, protects as many as 175 million endpoints worldwide.
