IDC MarketScape Worldwide Modern Endpoint Security for Small Businesses 2024 Vendor Assessment

Today, organizations need increased visibility into their endpoints, devices, and network to ensure that emerging threats, risky employee behavior, and unwanted applications do not risk their profits or reputation. ESET Inspect is the cloud-delivered, XDR-enabling component of the ESET PROTECT platform. It provides unique behavior - and reputation-based detection that is fully transparent to security teams, giving them real-time feedback based on threat intelligence provided by the global ESET LiveGrid® reputation system. With ESET PROTECT Platform we don´t just stop breaches – we prevent them.

Key strengths highlights from the report:

  • “The expansiveness of ESET's endpoint security-focused product portfolio is a principal strength. IDC commends ESET in terms of the following capabilities: Number of endpoint protection functions (host-based FW and IDS/IPS, DNS filtering, device control, DLP, and device encryption) with half of these functions offered as standard features; In-browser policy controls; Antiphishing protections; Anti-tampering precautions; Intel TDT integration (introduced in early 2022); Mobile threat detection; Customer security advisory recently enhanced with the commercial launch of device vulnerability management and patch management and integration with Microsoft Intune.”
  • “As an active participant in independent product evaluations, ESET consistently receives competitive results in terms of protection and performance as well as in EDR.“
  • “Go-to-market partnerships have also contributed to ESET's market momentum and in expanding geographically.”
  • “Pertaining to ESET detection and response capabilities, automated resolutions for ESET-curated detections are now included in ESET Inspect, the company's detection and response product. With threat intelligence an essential ingredient in detection and response, ESET joined the Joint Cyber Defense Collaborative (JCDC) in early 2023 as a partner in threat intelligence sharing. In addition, with a sizable consumer customer base, ESET is well positioned to leverage insights gained in protecting consumers in serving its business customers.”
  • “ESET is also a member of the App Defense Alliance, an alliance launched by Google in 2019 to protect the safety of apps available in the Google Play Store. ESET's detection engine is used to actively scan the Google Play Store for existing and emerging cyberthreats.”
