Hidden Costs of Endpoint Security

Thumb original wp hidden costs endpoint security

When it comes to endpoint security, CISOs are in a bind. Most assume that endpoints will be compromised at some point, and they are right. In a recent survey of CISOs, 81% reported at least one intrusion in the past year, and 22% had more than five.1 There is little doubt in their minds that traditional antivirus solutions are insufficient to secure endpoints—they need more advanced protection.
First-generation endpoint detection and response (EDR) solutions improve endpoint security by offering detection and response capabilities but also incur hidden costs. Inadequate response times expose the organization to risk from ransomware and other fast-acting threats. Security staff struggle to triage a flood of alerts, which increases workplace stress and misclassification of threats. Manual remediation efforts such as wipe and reimage consume IT staff time and lead to production downtime. There is little doubt that current EDR solutions lack the speed and automation that CISOs need to ensure cost-effective, reliable endpoint security.

Extending SD-WAN To OT Environments

The convergence of operational technology (OT) environments with enterprise-grade information technology (IT) solutions is offering many breakthrough capabilities across industrial businesses, manufacturing, and critical infrastructure. Software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) is one such solution. SD-WAN can replace traditional WAN across distributed and remote deployment infrastructures with higher-performing and more affordable commodity internet connections. But this performance and cost savings comes at the cost of losing traditional ...

Building Proactive Defenses Against Advanced OT Threats

Industries that utilize operational technology (OT) are under pressure to maintain the highest levels of uptime, availability, and safety. This includes critical infrastructure (e.g., hydroelectric dams, nuclear power plants, oil and gas pipelines)—where a system failure can directly impact human lives or the environment. But as OT systems evolve to increasingly interact with information technology (IT) systems, this convergence is creating new pathways for bad actors to disrupt these sensitive environments. Plant managers and operations leader ...

Forrester A Practical Guide To A Zero Trust Implementation

Since Forrester first introduced the model over a decade ago, Zero Trust has gained popularity and become the preferred security model for many enterprise and government organizations. The Zero Trust model shifts the focus of security from a perimeter-based defense to one that is based on minimizing implicit trust by continuously verifying that access is secure, authenticated, and authorized. Organizations that successfully implement a Zero Trust program increase customer trust and get better protection of employee, customer, and company data. ...
