ESET recognized in two analyst reports on Threat Intelligence and Zero Trust Threat Detection and Response

BRATISLAVA — July 20, 2021 — ESET, a global leader in cybersecurity, has been included in two Forrester reports: The Forrester Tech Tide™: Zero Trust Threat Detection And Response, Q2 2021 and The Forrester Tech Tide™: Threat Intelligence, Q2 2021. ESET was included as a sample vendor in both reports, which ESET believes highlights its powerful endpoint detection and response and threat intelligence services.

The Forrester Tech Tide reports examine the maturity of an ecosystem of technologies, and help organizations make decisions on which technologies to invest in and when. The “Zero Trust Threat Detection and Response” report analyzes 17 technology categories and includes sample vendors that support Zero Trust threat detection and response capabilities. These capabilities “have become even more critical for identifying ongoing attacks that may have evaded preventive controls and tools.” As such, this report complements The Forrester Tech Tide™: Zero Trust Threat Prevention, Q3 2020.

“The Forrester Tech Tide: Threat Intelligence” report analyzes 15 technology and service categories that  enable an effective and intelligence-driven security program.

ESET believes its inclusion in the reports reflects the high business value of its products and services, in particular, ESET Enterprise Inspector and ESET Threat Intelligence, which are backed by strong malware research (published on ESET’s security blog WeLiveSecurity).

Zero Trust threat detection and response is critical to all modern businesses. As Forrester points out in its report, endpoint detection and response solutions “are the next generation of endpoint protection, providing more visibility and control than has ever been available.”

With the threat landscape evolving and cyber breaches increasing, Forrester also identified threat intelligence as a critical component of a business’s security stance. Organizations from every industry should use cyber threat intelligence to track threat actors and help build robust security systems. ESET has been identified as an expert in the field of threat intelligence, providing detailed cyber threat intelligence and indicators of compromise feeds that are applied across the whole portfolio of its products, and are assembled and assessed by its vast network of research teams across the globe.

Zuzana Legáthová, Analyst Relations Manager at ESET, commented, “We are thrilled to be included in not one, but two Forrester Tech Tide reports for our endpoint detection and response offering and our threat intelligence services. We believe inclusion in these kinds of reports reflects our continued investment in our own technologies and research, and our commitment to ensuring our customers are always one step ahead in the threat landscape. Strong threat detection and response and threat intelligence capabilities are now more than ever of vital importance to all businesses and organizations, and we are proud to be recommended by Forrester as a vendor that supports organizations in building resilient security architectures underpinned by these technologies.”
