Why Read This Report

In an industry desperate for objective efficacy testing, the introduction of the MITRE ATT&CK evaluation of endpoint detection and response (EDR) security products is a much-welcomed event. However, when MITRE published its results, it did so as a scientific data set, leaving security pros to interpret individual vendor performance on their own. This report is Forrester's guide to understanding the results and our analysis of what each vendor's results say about its offering. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and revises it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy. MITRE has now added McAfee and F-Secure to the MITRE ATT&CK evaluation for EDR, and we've updated our analysis accordingly.
