Conventional endpoint security services, a few of which have been around for over 20 years, rely greatly on the exact same defense approaches year after year. Although there is constantly development and strides to enhance, the underlying problem still exists. Dangers will constantly discover a way into your organization. And for the most part, you will have to wait till your deployed solution finally spots the risk before you even can begin to assess the damage and possibly avoid it from occurring once again (once you get all the appropriate info to make that informed decision, obviously). Another downside to these systems is that they frequently develop a big performance problem on the actual device they are protecting. This in turn results in dissatisfied end-users and other issues such as management and reliability.
But this blog is not about deserting your current service, however rather enhancing and empowering your general security posture. Organizations need to move towards and accept those systems that offer constant tracking and complete visibility of all activity occurring on their endpoint population. Blocking or avoiding recognized malware from running is undoubtedly important, but does not have the general defense required in today’s threat landscape. The ability to run deeper forensics from current or in some cases more importantly, previous events, can truly just be done by systems that offer continuous tracking. This info is crucial in evaluating the damage and comprehending the scope of the infection within your company.
This, of course, needs to be done efficiently and with a limited amount of system overhead.
Just as there are lots of solutions in the standard endpoint security space, a brand-new league of vendors is popping up in this crucial step of the development. The majority of these businesses have employees from the ‘old guard’ and understand that a brand-new vision is required as the danger landscape continues to alter. Simply reporting and informing on just bad things is totally missing the point. You MUST look at everything, everybody and all behaviors and actions in order to provide yourself the best chance of reacting quickly and thoroughly to hazards within your organization.
By making use of systems that fall under this “New Path of Endpoint Security” world, Security Ops or Incident Responders within the organization will have the much needed visibility they have actually been craving. We hear this continuously from our clients and prospects and are doing our utmost to provide the systems that help protect everyone.
