Endpoint devices are the single largest group of devices inside your network today – and growing bigger every day. The average employee uses at least three devices for work purposes (laptops, tablets, smartphones, IoT) and each one represents a potential entry point for an attacker to exploit and gain unlawful access.
A single unmanaged device, a careless click on a malicious link, a targeted attack and endpoint devices can be compromised in moments. Once an attacker is in, the damage to your infrastructure and the valuable endpoint data within can be severe, unless you catch it quickly.
Too often, endpoints go unmonitored and unpatched, making them an easy mark for cybercriminals. Last year’s WannaCry ransomware outbreak is just one example of the increasing attacks on endpoint devices.
In an increasingly mobile world, protecting endpoints is a critical business imperative. In my new guide, Four Essential Strategies for Endpoint Security and Protection, we detail the most common attacks against endpoints and how to take a comprehensive, proactive approach to protect your data and devices from evolving threats.
Through a series of practical steps, this guide will walk you through the foundations of endpoint security where you will learn how to:
- Get ahead of threats and prevent security incidents before they happen
- Implement continuous assessment for regulatory compliance
- Dramatically minimize risk through effective technologies and processes should an incident occur
