Forty percent of enterprises said their endpoints had been the entry point for an Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) during the previous 12 months.
To make matters worse, just twenty-four percent said their endpoint security technologies alerted staff to a potential breach. Securing the vast array of endpoints used by employees is challenging organisations of all sizes. However, IT and IT Security staff must address the tremendous risk posed by inadequate protections on endpoints.
Advancing Endpoint Security: The Importance of Threat Intelligence, Visibility and Disrupting the Kill Chain discusses:
- The problem: more sophisticated threats following the path of least resistance
- The solution: catching bad behavior – telltale signs vs. signatures
- Disrupting the kill chain earlier: lowering the costs to correct the problem
- The three things you want your endpoint security solution to do
By arming itself with the right weapons, an organisation has a chance to not only detect threat actors and their tradecraft, especially when they employ evasive tactics, but to also slash the amount of time it takes to respond to attacks and minimise the damage they cause.
