IDC MarketScape names ESET as a Major Player for second year in a row

BRATISLAVA – For the second year in a row, ESET, a global leader in cybersecurity, has been recognized as a Major Player in mobile threat management in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Mobile Threat Management Software 2020 Vendor Assessment (Doc #US46092220, September 2020).*

The assessment evaluates the enterprise market for mobile threat management software products, helping organizations to identify vendors with strong offerings and well-integrated business strategies.

According to the report, “ESET is strong in the areas of threat research, especially around Android malware identification and behavior detection.” As IDC further notes, “Organizations looking to consolidate security products and operations around a unified endpoint security model should also consider ESET for its broader portfolio of endpoint and security management tools on top of MTM.”

In 2020, mobile security has become a greater priority than ever before, as huge numbers of organizations have deployed large-scale remote working, while threat actors have increased their attempts exponentially. As they are separated from the office, more employees are using their mobile devices as a regular part of everyday work, and it is vital that these devices are protected. Businesses should ensure that all endpoints are secured with software such as ESET Endpoint Security for Android, which protects against a wide range of threats with its multilayered defense.

This is more than relevant today, as for many, a significant challenge in contending with mobile threats is managing all of the devices within an organization. As each employee may have multiple mobile devices, overseeing the software on each and every device can be a time-consuming task. However, offerings such as ESET Security Management Center** – which is automatically included in all ESET endpoint protection licenses – can streamline the process, providing a single pane of glass from which to manage all machines on a network.

Zuzana Legáthová, Analyst Relations Manager at ESET, commented: “As one of the IT industry’s most important vendor assessment tools, IDC MarketScape’s continued recognition of ESET as a Major Player is a great testament to the strength of ESET’s mobile security offerings. ESET’s improved performance compared to last year’s assessment is a confirmation of our ever-growing capabilities in the increasingly important space of mobile threat management software. Businesses across the globe can depend on ESET’s expertise to keep their devices safe and secure, and being named as a Major Player in Mobile Threat Management by IDC Marketscape is an important validation of this.”
