Endpoint security represents the frontline in your fight against cyberattackers. Breaches have become commonplace among enterprises, and your employee endpoints and servers are targeted more than any other type of asset (see Figure 1). The effects from these security breaches can be devastating, causing a company to lose revenue, market reputation, and market competitiveness.1 Unfortunately, inadequate endpoint security leaves the doors wide open to a variety of attacker techniques and tools, including malware, software exploits, and social engineering. Now, more than ever, it’s critical to have the right endpoint protection in place.
Security budgets have risen significantly in the past few years, with endpoint security budgets commanding, on average, 10% of the overall IT security budget in 2016.2 Despite the available budget for new investments, security pros struggle to find the right tools to protect the expanding attack surface posed by employee devices.
