AUCKLAND, January 25, 2024Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global cybersecurity leader, today celebrated high scores for its Trend Vision One™ – Endpoint Security product across all four use cases appraised by Gartner in a new report.

Srujan Talakokkula, Managing Director, ANZ Commercial Business at Trend Micro: “As Gartner recognises, effective endpoint security demands close integration with the rest of the security environment. That’s why we believe Trend Vision One takes a platform-based approach to managing risk across the entire attack surface, from email and endpoint to the cloud. We’re delighted to be ranked so highly in this report, and in Gartner’s recent Magic Quadrant for endpoint protection. It validates our approach and will propel our efforts to continue delivering value to global customers.”

The Gartner report explains that many organisations are consolidating multiple point solutions onto a single endpoint protection vendor: “Their aim is to minimise performance impact, improve ease of use, and enhance security configuration management to reduce compatibility issues and security gaps,” it says. However, it adds that for such an approach to work, “Endpoint protection must be integrated with contextual information from the entire security infrastructure stack to combat the modern threat landscape.”

This is the value that Trend believes Trend Vision One – Endpoint Security delivers as part of the Vision One platform. It provides protection, detection and response across physical endpoints – including PCs, Macs, ATMs and POS devices – as well as servers, virtual machines and cloud workloads.

This enables security teams to centralise visibility, protection and response, as well as license and policy management, all from a single location. In so doing, organisations can reduce security gaps, minimise management overheads and reduce costs.

Gartner’s report also recommends that organisations “prioritise core protection and detection, and advanced capabilities like XDR” or, if they are struggling with skills and resource constraints, MDR.

Trend Vision One – Endpoint Security offers both as part of its comprehensive Trend Vision One security platform. This enables organisations to share threat intelligence and manage risk more effectively across the entire attack surface, including email, network, cloud, mobile, identity, IoT and OT.

The Gartner report ranked Trend Vision One – Endpoint Security second in the Security Platform Use Case out of 16 vendors. It was given the top score for “Architecturally Constrained Environments,” and was ranked third for Managed Security Services and fourth for the Core Endpoint Protection Use Case.
