Choosing the Right NDR Solution for You
Many solutions are available that deliver NDR functionality (or claim to for marketing purposes). A simple search for NDR will return many vendors who will sell you a solution. Given that having NDR is a crucial part of cybersecurity defenses and the number of options available, how can IT decision-makers ensure that they select the best solution for their organization and its unique IT infrastructure?
Most IT leaders will rely on external IT and cybersecurity partners for advice on this topic. They will also use industry analyst reports to get a picture of the overall NDR market so that they can have informed discussions with partners, suppliers, or vendors if they are buying an NDR solution directly.
One such report that provides market insights, competitive evaluation, and vendor rankings in the NDR sector is the SPARK MatrixTM: Network Detection and Response (NDR), 2022 report from Quadrant Knowledge Solutions.

The SPARK NDR report analyzed 22 vendor solutions and segmented them into three categories: Aspirants, Challengers, and Technology Leaders. Progress Flowmon NDR was placed in the Technology Leaders segment due to its high scores for customer impact and technology excellence.
