The Gartner Hype Cycle for Endpoint Security tracks the innovations that aid security leaders in protecting their enterprise endpoints from attacks and breaches. The technologies and practices in this space are being shaped by two trends: the continued growth in increased complexity of ransomware and endpoint attacks, and the sudden surge in remote working.
Ransomware attackers have evolved from the more simplistic automated techniques to highly organized human- operated campaigns and are designed to extract the maximum ransom from their victims. To combat advanced attacks, it is crucial for security and risk management leaders to correlate data from the endpoint and elsewhere when threat hunting to offer efficient and secure remote access. As EDR matures and reaches wide adoption, Extended Detection and Response (XDR), Unified Endpoint Security (UES), Security Service Edge (SSE), and Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) emerge to offer ways to integrate stand-alone security solutions.
