In the report, Gartner identifies four primary stages in the security life cycle: Setting policy, prevention, detection and remediation, and evaluated EPP vendors based on whether the features their solutions offer address these four stages.
According to the report: “Most enterprise buyers are starting to look at EPP products that can address not only Windows, but a broad array of servers and clients. We evaluated a vendor’s ability to protect and manage a wide array of endpoints (such as Mac, iOS and Android devices), and to integrate those into the management console. Today, many large enterprise buyers are selecting a best-of-breed EMM (enterprise mobility management) capability; however, within the next two years, we expect the EPP market to subsume this function (which is already happening at the SME end of the market).”
