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.

Which Next-generation Endpoint Security Enhancements Are Required

Endpoints continue to be one of the favorite targets for cyberattacks. A successfully compromised laptop, smartphone, or Internet-of-Things (IoT) device can provide a foothold for threats to move laterally, infect other endpoints within the organization, and moreover enable attackers to gain access to other critical assets. In addition to weakened security, intrusions also divert staff time away from activities that enhance network performance and streamline operations.

To address these challenges, IT infrastructure leaders need integrated n ...

Understanding the Obstacles to WAN Transformation — Security, Performance, and TCO

Network engineering and operations leaders are looking to software-defined wide- area networks (SD-WAN) to support the influx of traffic and applications driven by digital transformation (DX). These applications improve staff productivity while creating new business opportunities, but they also reshape corporate networking and security needs.

In response, many organizations are beginning to rethink their traditional WAN architecture. SD WAN has emerged as a replacement, but many SD-WAN implementations also present serious challenges—from ina ...

Visualisation in the virtual reality age: A focus on manufacturing and engineering

While 3D design tools have been around for a while, the consumerisation of VR is opening-up visualisation options at an unprecedented rate. Visualisation has evolved to a level that allows designers to produce photorealistic images of products in natural environments faster and with more accuracy, enabling even faster time-to-market and allowing customers to experience the product for themselves – and all without real-world prototyping and modelling costs.

This guide is designed to give you an overview of the latest developments in visualisa ...

The Road to Recovery – Growing Your Business in China

The COVID-19 pandemic has triggered a major slowdown in the global economy. However, China is recovering faster than many countries and is predicted to register growth in 2020 while other major economies continue to battle the virus and are sliding into recession.
