Requirements from widespread work-from-anywhere policies have escalated the need for endpoint management and security convergence. IT and security teams need broad management, prevention, detection, and response capabilities that span endpoint devices and operating environments that are often outside of their control, which is driving many to desire convergence between management and security capabilities to simplify implementation, ongoing management, and risk mitigation.

IT and security teams require new mechanisms capable of providing common visibility, assessment, mitigation of software and configuration vulnerabilities, threat prevention, and support for threat investigation and response activities. These management and security activities are deeply intertwined, requiring integrated workflows between IT and security teams.

In order to gain further insights into these trends, TechTarget’s Enterprise Strategy Group surveyed 381 IT and cybersecurity decision makers involved with endpoint management and security technologies and processes at midmarket (100 to 999 employees) and enterprise (1,000 or more employees) organizations in North America (US and Canada).
