Trend Micro Recognised Again as a Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms

SYDNEY, February, 2018 Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, was again named a Leader in Gartner, Inc.’s 2018 Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms1,2; one of three vendors out of a total of 21companies valuated.

Trend Micro has been identified by Gartner as a Leader in every Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms published since 2002. Trend Micro believes that this placement demonstrates its strong and balanced success over the years in both its ability to execute and completeness of vision within an ever-changing market.

“Our approach to endpoint security is ultimately driven by our commitment to protecting customers from a broad and evolving range of threats. This has fueled a constant stream of innovation over the years, embracing new detection techniques and bolstering our solution’s threat defence effectiveness,” says Eric Skinner, Vice President Market Strategy, Trend Micro. “We believe Gartner’s Magic Quadrant placement of us reinforces an already-proven track record of being able to meet our customer’s protection and performance needs over the long haul.”

Trend Micro’s Endpoint solution powered by XGen™ offers a cross-generational blend of layered threat defence techniques, including behavioral analysis, machine learning and automated response. Trend’s machine learning encompasses both pre-execution and runtime machine learning to address the number one customer pain point of effective detection with low false positives. Runtime detection in particular combats the growing prevalence of dangerous fileless and script-based attacks, which are designed to bypass traditional filters.

“A cornerstone of our enterprise security strategy is the defense-in-depth delivered from Trend Micro’s endpoint protection platform,” said Frank Bunton, VP CISO at MedImpact Healthcare. “We believe that entrusting our endpoints to Trend Micro has helped us mitigate risk at our facilities. We are proud they have been recognised for, what we feel is, the strength of their products.”
