The Leaderboard features the top systems rated on 20 key functional requirements, identified by organizations purchasing endpoint security software.
Symantec, Webroot and McAfee were rated highest in SelectHub’s analysis of more than 50 endpoint security systems—with Symantec Endpoint Protection edging out the leaders for top spot on the Leaderboard.
Other top performers in the report are solutions from ESET, Sophos, Carbon Black, Cisco, Cylance and Microsoft.
SelectHub said protection against cyber attacks has never been more important. Forbes estimates cybercrime will cost $6 trillion a year on average through 2021.
“Cybersecurity is rapidly changing as technology advances and malware attacks become more sophisticated than ever before,” said Iva Peric-Lightfoot, country manager, ESET Canada.
“It’s crucial that businesses stay current with their cybersecurity products and needs – implementing a layered 360-degree approach to security. It needs to be intuitive, trustworthy technology and must update regularly. “
The endpoint security systems in the SelectHub report were rated on critical performance measures such as protection against data loss, insider threats, application and network access controls, privileged user controls, data center protection, and endpoint threat detection and response.
SelectHub said it calculates its rankings across critical functional categories, using information compiled from ongoing software selection projects and actual RFPs managed through their software selection management platform.
SelectHub then validates scores with third-party industry and research firms to assure the accuracy of the ranking methodology and findings.
The interactive leaderboard is available as part of SelectHub’s software selection platform and is customizable based on an organization’s specific learning management system requirements.
