Endpoint Security: A Critical Step Toward Dealing with Cyber Threats
Organizations need a new approach to endpoint security to secure against advanced cyber threats.
Endpoint Security: Current State
Today, organizations are spending over $5 billion dollars on traditional endpoint security and losing the battle against advanced threat groups. This is because most existing endpoint security solutions use conventional antivirus and anti-spam software and host intrusion prevention services (HIPS) that are useful against commodity malware but ineffective against advanced attacks.
Advanced Attacks on EndpointsModern cyber attacks are not simple, isolated malware events. Attacks frequently begin by establishing a foothold within an organization’s infrastructure, often at an endpoint via malware, stolen credentials, or other techniques. Once the endpoint is compromised, the attackers can move laterally to find and exploit other systems until they locate the data or processes they are truly after. Advanced cyber attackers have the advantage—they only need to exploit a single vulnerability, while your organization must protect every system and vector.
