Forrester Wave for EDR 2020: Bitdefender 'the biggest EDR vendor you haven’t considered but should have'

Bitdefender, a leading global cybersecurity company protecting over 500 million systems worldwide, has been named a “strong performer” in The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Detection And Response, Q1 2020 report, based on its offering, strategy and market presence.

The latest Forrester WAVE for EDR report is out, and we’re proud to have been named a Wave Strong Performer in EDR, a privileged spot in the Strong Performers group. This is further confirmation of Bitdefender’s leadership position in the EDR space, after the recent 100% APT detection score from AV-Comparatives, and the just-announced Best Protection Award from AV-TEST.


Security analytics, incident response, performance and management, united in a top-of-the-line product


This is Bitdefender’s debut in Forrester’s EDR WAVE, and the prestigious analysis firm has already nominated our EDR solution as a key offering in the security space. Performance, security analytics, incident response and simplified management capabilities are key reasons for Forrester placing Bitdefender in a privileged spot in the Strong Performers group.

“Bitdefender is democratizing advanced security technologies by focusing on the prevention of early kill chain events and the delivery of automated remediation post-execution,” Forrester writes in its evaluation. “This strategy, delivered through direct, OEM, and managed service channels, makes Bitdefender one of the biggest EDR vendors.”


For more than 18 years, Bitdefender has led the pack in detection technologies. Our security is integrated in more than 38% of competing business products around the world, but the management capabilities in Bitdefender GravityZone Ultra have been equally acclaimed in this report.


Outside the analyst space, Bitdefender’s offering remains highly regarded by leading independent testing labs firms too. Both AV-Test and AV-Comparatives have recently ranked Bitdefender at the top of their most prestigious testing. AV-Test just named the Bitdefender GravityZone Ultra solution as the winner of its Best Protection Award for its performance in testing throughout 2019.


AV-Comparatives confirmed the same performance three months ago, when Bitdefender GravityZone Ultra scored 100% in its inaugural advanced attack test.

A product that customers (and analysts) love


Bitdefender’s industry-wide leadership in terms of quality is appreciated not only by sector analysts, but also by customers.


“GravityZone Ultra is the next step in security protection,” said Lance Harris, Chief Information Security Officer, Esurance. “EDR makes detection more accurate and provides solid background on what’s happening at the endpoint. This helps us decide how to respond— whether we quarantine, lock down, or delete files.”
