Endpoint protection is evolving to address more of Gartner’s adaptive security architecture tasks such as hardening, investigation, incident detection, and incident response. Security and risk management leaders should ensure that their EPP vendor evolves fast enough to keep up with modern threats.
Panda Security’s unique value proposition is the classification or attestation of every single executable file and process on a protected endpoint device, and it is the only vendor to include a managed threat hunting service in the base purchase of its EPP. Adaptive Defense 360 is fully cloud managed, and combines EPP and EDR into a single offering and single agent.
The attestation service implements an automatic application whitelisting model, where only trusted and approved applications and processes are able to execute. By offloading the classification and authorization process to the vendor, organizations will have a much better deployment success rate than trying to deploy a manual application control solution.
Panda Security’s cloud-first approach, and the managed services backing the EPP and EDR capabilities, are beginning to increase brand awareness outside of Europe.
Organizations without experienced security staff will find Panda Security a good shortlist candidate for an EPP solution, as will organizations considering managed detection and response solutions that are prepared to replace their incumbent EPP vendor.
- The 100% attestation service can drastically reduce the threat surface of endpoints.
- Due to the classification of all executable processes, Panda Security is able to provide detailed information on vulnerable versions of applications that are present in the environment.
- Panda Security’s Adaptive Defense platform was one of the first to combine endpoint protection features with managed EDR capabilities.
- The price point is extremely attractive when buyers consider the capabilities and managed services that are included.
