I’ve been a Cloud CISO for a little more than 5 years now. One consequence is that enterprise endpoint security products and I have rarely passed paths. Agile orgs running Linux / OSX with users perpetually outside the perimeter is not easily solved for with legacy endpoint products.

But I was curious what has changed…

This afternoon I read with interest the “Forrester Wave Endpoint Security Suites Q4, 2016” report.

The report could have been written ten years ago, with the notable exceptions:

  1. Companies like Carbon Black, Cylance, CrowdStrike and Bromium have emerged to challenge perennial industry giants. Any innovation in endpoint security is noteworthy. No longer is it acceptable for the incumbents to ride the cash cow of enterprise renewals without significant development efforts to keep pace.
  2. Quarantine = Remediation

You can find the Forrester report over on the Carbon Black website.  (Gated, Sigh…)
