Endpoint Security: Four trends to consider when improving your defenses
Endpoint protection is not a fair fight.
Organizations must protect every single endpoint, while attackers only
need to breach one. Considering the following 4 trends when
formulating a plan to improve your endpoint security:
- The number of endpoints continue to
grow – 45% of corporate data resides on endpoint devices and almost
80% of workers use more than one device to access this data
- Insufficient machine-to-machine protection – by 2020 more than
12 billion machine-to-machine connections will need protection
- Misconfigurations and employee mistakes contribute to breaches –
84% of organizations say spear-phishing attacks successfully
- The supply of IT security professionals
continues to lag behind the demand – 1 million cybersecurity jobs
went unfulfilled in 2016
