Get 20/20 Cybersecurity Vision Onto Your Endpoints

Many organizations lack the ability to monitor endpoints effectively. According to a Ponemon study, only 36% of the companies they surveyed had an Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR) tool. Companies might be using traditional antivirus technologies combined with other practices to stay secure. Patching together different tools and techniques is not a cohesive strategy. Antivirus technologies often have a high number of false-positives and miss fileless attacks and zero-days.

To get better visibility into endpoints, go beyond the traditional methods. Companies can use an EDR combined with a Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) to get full visibility into endpoints.

Challenges of Traditional Methods

For a company with poor visibility into their endpoints, the resolution from endpoint attacks could be messy. When a violation is detected the company is likely to spend a huge amount of time attempting to determine precisely what caused the incident, what actually occurred and how it is to be resolved. That is all due to a lack of visibility.

Common visibility problems for security teams:

  • Teams might be blind to threats that are already dwelling on their endpoints.
  • There is no knowledge of what end users are doing on their devices, both inside and outside of the network.
  • No way of knowing or estimating if existing non-EDR prevention tools are doing their job.
  • If an incident occurs, the team is forced to start at ground zero to investigate a breach.

Endpoints of Remote Workers

The need to protect endpoints is even more now that remote work has become the norm. A remote workforce means people are accessing their devices in a variety of environments. More unknowns, means more cybersecurity risk. Every device that connects to a company’s network creates a potential entry point for security threats.

Managed Endpoint Protection & Response

If you are short on internal security resources required to manage these solutions on a 24x7x365 basis, then managed security services would be valuable. The components of a managed security service include:

  • SIEM Logging, Analysis and Alerting
  • Vulnerability Management
  • Asset Discovery
  • Network and Host Threat Monitoring
  • Compliance Reporting

Repetitive assessment, discovery & threat detection by an in-house team takes a massive amount of time. When these tasks are outsourced your time is re-earned. This makes it possible to use your security teams’ abilities accurately and effectively. An accurate and effective security team can then focus on strategic security priorities.

Managed Services provide the most cost-effective solution giving you the greatest leap forward for your security maturity with an almost instant value.
