In January 2019, State of California, Department of Technology Office of Information, issued the Security Endpoint Protection Standard SIMM 5355-A, indicating that all endpoint security technologies deployed by the State must have the following required and recommended capabilities for protection, detection, investigation, containment and remediation.
