Rapidly Evolving Malware Threats Force Vendors to Innovate to Provide Capable Endpoint Anti-Malware Solutions
Sophos and Trend Micro are named Endpoint Anti-Malware market Champions by Info-Tech Research Group and innovate to keep up with evolving malware threats.
London, ON (PRWEB) September 26, 2011
A recent Endpoint Anti-Malware Vendor Landscape report released by Info-Tech Research Group lists Sophos and Trend Micro as market Champions. In a market that is constantly evolving to keep up with modern malware threats, these vendors provide solutions that allow business leaders to sleep at night.
Ã¢Å“Malware threats continue to evolve at a breakneck pace, as does the sheer volume of different malware types that exist,Ã¢ said James Quin, Lead Research Analyst, Info-Tech Research Group. Ã¢Å“To keep up with the onslaught, Anti-Malware vendors must continue to innovate and bring new products with capabilities to the field. Simple signature-based scanners are no longer close to sufficient.Ã¢
Sophos is a Champion in the Vendor Landscape report leading the pack with a balance of both product strength and vendor capabilities. They also received the Ã¢Å“Innovation AwardÃ¢ by offering the most complete solution which scored in every advanced feature category in the evaluation. Info-Tech recommends that Sophos be considered as an alternative on every businessÃ¢ short-list.
Trend Micro is commended for their laser-sharp focus as they deliver the strongest reputation scanning abilities on the market. The report states that reputation scanning offers the hope of a rebalancing of the protection/performance scale as viruses become almost unmanageable by traditional measures. As the originator of this capability, Trend Micro is a true endpoint protection innovator and is also listed as a Champion in the report.
Endpoint Anti-Malware is not a solution that businesses should cut corners on to save a few dollars according to Info-Tech, but the report highlights valid solutions that offer great value for money. Kaspersky is recognized as the Ã¢Å“Best Overall ValueÃ¢ winner offering the lowest- priced solution in the landscape at a cost of less than half of the solutions from the Ã¢Å“big three.Ã¢ The truly paranoid may find limited appeal in this price point as KasperskyÃ¢s solution offers a smaller feature set, but Info-Tech believes it is a solution that must be considered by cost- conscious enterprises.
