CRN’s 2024 Security 100 List: 20 Coolest Endpoint And Managed Security Companies



CRN's 2024 Security 100 List 20 Coolest Endpoint And Managed Security Companies

Here is a look at 20 important endpoint and managed security companies, ranging from vendors offering tools for endpoint protection and detection to managed detection and response services.

AI-powered protection and detection are still essential for protecting corporate PCs, servers, and other endpoint devices in the face of the ongoing increase in the frequency and complexity of cyber threats. Consequently, there is an ongoing demand for endpoint security: the global endpoint security market grew by 29.2 percent in 2022 over 2021, based on the most recent data available from IDC.

Customers have been showing an “increasing appetite” for a modernized approach to endpoint security, which includes “a broader set of functionality and services,” according to the research firm’s report. Additionally, according to a report by IDC, enterprises are protecting an increasing number of devices.

According to IDC, Microsoft, CrowdStrike, Trend Micro, Trellix, VMware, Sophos, and Palo Alto Networks lead the $13.11 billion endpoint security market by revenue share. According to a report by IDC, SentinelOne, which holds the ninth-most-spot in the market, grew by 84.5 percent from the previous year, trailing Microsoft in terms of revenue growth among the top endpoint security players, which grew by 108.9 percent year over year.

Overall, endpoint security is still considered standard practice for many businesses, even though managed solutions, like managed detection and response (MDR), are becoming more and more well-liked due to the labor shortage.

The 20 endpoint and managed security companies that made our Security 100 for 2024 are listed below.

  1. Adlumin

Robert Johnston
