Woburn MA – December 2, 2019 - Kaspersky, industry leader in endpoint protection, has been recognized as a 2019 Customers’ Choice for Endpoint Protection Platforms on Gartner Peer Insights, following a customer rating of 4.6 out of 5 (1729 ratings) – the highest score among all vendors with more than 600 total reviews. Kaspersky has been named a Customers’ Choice all three years the firm has announced it, including winning the Platinum award in 2017.
Gartner Peer Insights is a vendor neutral platform, where customers can provide positive or negative feedback on the products they use across a variety of markets, as well as assign a rating according to their experience. The Customers’ Choice distinction is based on how many customers have reviewed a product and the associated ratings.
The company has also been recognized within the following Customer’s Choice Category Distinctions: Services, Government, Global Enterprise (10B+ USD), Mid-size Enterprise (50M – 1B USD), Public Sector, Gov’t, Edu, Asia/Pacific, North America, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Latin America. Kaspersky is also the only vendor recognized in all four deployment regions.
In the year preceding October 31, 2019 – from when the ratings were taken – Kaspersky continued to evolve the capabilities of its endpoint protection solution for businesses, enhancing key features to provide even greater control and automated threat detection. For example, EDR capabilities can identify abnormal user behavior, automatically detecting and remediating evasive and in particular fileless threats as they try to mimic common behavior like PowerShell script execution. Other enhancements include improved protection from cryptominers and network threats. A web-based management console provides IT security teams with improved flexibility and control over cybersecurity management, enhancing product efficiencies.
