Microsoft is the only vendor to be recognized as a Leader in the Forrester Wave report.

Often Endpoints are the real targets for advanced and complex cyberattacks. But Microsoft’s Defender for endpoint helps security teams to detect and remove threats by giving a clear picture of both endpoint information and also signals from identity, cloud applications, and email. It also monitors Microsoft and third-party software vulnerabilities and security configuration issues. With this solution, companies can understand exactly what happened in an attack and in what order.
This recognition has benefitted Microsoft to provide customers with an effective and comprehensive security solution. Microsoft will also be investing USD20 Billion to deliver product excellence, innovation, and cutting-edge technology for the next five years to their clients.
