Gartner Research: Innovation Insight for Unified Endpoint Security, 2020

According to Gartner, “To face emerging endpoint security challenges, security and risk management leaders must combine functionality from endpoint protection platforms, endpoint detection and response, and mobile threat defense in a unified endpoint security approach.” Download Gartner Research: Innovation Insight for Unified Endpoint Security, 2020 for more guidance.

In much the same way that endpoint management tools converged to a single unified endpoint management (UEM) solution, security tools are following a path from point solutions of endpoint protection platforms (EPP), endpoint detection and response (EDR), and mobile threat defense (MTD) to a converged UES framework.
