Summary

In this article, you'll find The Netify 20 top/best Cybersecurity vendors and service providers which fit the needs of most mid-market and Enterprise businesses.

The cybersecurity landscape is vast and evolving rapidly. This leads to a marketplace filled with products designed to provide specific solutions for different problems which enterprise verticals encounter. For instance, a multinational premium video streaming service has a lot of attack surface exposed to the web and therefore needs more of a website-centric approach focused on security controls for relevant threats like account takeover or DDoS attacks.

A hardware manufacturer with thousands of employees may have a very small internet-facing attack surface, but they have employees with internal access to proprietary business information which can be threatened by e-mail compromise or malware infection - therefore, they need to focus on access management, e-mail security, and endpoint protection. Different still, a company with hundreds of thousands of remote employees using personal devices to access corporate resources will need a comprehensive solution combining security controls like ZTNA, MDR, XDR, CASB, SWG and FWaaS.

So, whether the solution being sought needs to solve financial transaction security issues with blockchain solutions or to prevent data loss and by ensuring that the data being stored or processed internally stays internal, there are viable technology solutions to fit almost any requirement. For the modern CISO, the key to shopping for such solutions is to find either a comprehensive solution or a blend of products that solves their specific business problems amongst the ever-growing number of cybersecurity offerings available on the market.

Summary

What are 10 questions to ask your cybersecurity vendor?

  • Do you offer a comprehensive SASE solution or a point solution to a specific security problem. We want to know if the vendor is attempting to provide an end-to-end solution or an ancillary or additional set of tools to add to an existing suite of tools.
  • Do you focus more on innovation of new features or on enhancement of existing features? We want to know what’s important to the company so we can align their values with ours.
  • Who is your target audience? We want to know if they are experienced in serving industries similar to ours, and if they are cloud first or on-premise solution vendors, –or even offering all deployment types.
  • What is the pricing model? We need to know the parts and pieces required to build a solution and estimate the costs that will be incurred.
  • What services are offered Virtual SOC, policy management, professional services, elite support, or is it "do-it-yourself"? When we find ourselves needing help, we’d like to know if we can turn to our vendor.
  • Is the solution software only or is it available in appliances or virtual appliances? We want to know if we can manage this solution ourselves or if we need the vendor to manage the solution for us.
  • Do you offer contextual threat detection and analysis (either human or AI) or are you using signature-based (or both) detection methods? We want insight into how ‘smart’ they are when detecting threats.
  • Do you support all endpoints, clouds, and operating systems? We want to know if there are limitations with devices or operating systems which we have in our environment.
  • Do you have interactive online documentation and self-help portals? We want to know if we will have to call support every time we have a question or if there is a community with knowledge base articles and FAQs where we can go first to save time.
  • What kind of integrations are available for this solution? This question will give insight into how existing customers use the solution in their security stack, and whether development resources will be required to fit into our stack.

18. Microsoft Cybersecurity solution

Microsoft may offer the most complete solution to cybersecurity, especially for organizations who are already utilizing Microsoft 365 and Azure.  With its endpoint security solution (Defender) built-in (as native as it gets!) to the most widely deployed desktop operating system in business environments and billions spent annually on security operations, it’s hard to beat.  And, organizations who utilize Google Workspace as their productivity suite, or organizations who have large populations of Linux or Apple users can still benefit from Microsoft’s security solutions.

With this in mind, Microsoft’s vast portfolio of security offerings can definitely make it complex to find the right parts and pieces necessary for an individual organization’s needs. Microsoft takes a do-it-yourself approach in the deployment of their security solutions, which are primarily sold through Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider partners. Organizations looking for a leading solution in endpoint protection and management, CASB, DLP and information archiving natively integrated with Microsoft 365 should consider Microsoft as a potential provider of comprehensive cybersecurity solutions. Additionally, Microsoft’s Azure Sentinel SIEM, analytics, reporting tools, and marketplace full of integrations are some of the best in the industry  Not to mention, their cloud-based security solutions are used for national security in many governments around the world, including the United States and United Kingdom. Their constant innovation and research is unmatched and their approach to cybersecurity, in general, is forward thinking.

Microsoft’s portfolio truly has a security solution for almost any cybersecurity need, although it can be argued that their benefits are most easily realized by organizations who are already Microsoft 365 or Azure users.

  • Defender’s EDR capabilities are better on Windows than Linux, Apple, etc.
  • Mostly cloud-based with very limited (and very expensive) on-premise options
