Retailers, restaurants, hoteliers, and small businesses continue to discover breaches on their point of sale (POS) devices, as the result of brute force hacking, backdoor malware, use of stolen credentials, phishing, or memory scraping. Even though retailers have a responsibility to protect consumer data, attacks still happen. According to the
If you are looking to select a new Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP) – or replace the one you’ve got – you’ll want to make sure to run an effective proof of concept (PoC). But what does that mean exactly? In this blog post, we’ll look at some of the key challenges and give our recommendations on how to solve them.
One of the many facets in managing security tools is the deployment process. In an ideal world, deployment and installation would be straightforward and easy, but we often hear from IT Security teams how unhappy they are with their current tools. Imagine you’ve invested time, money (lots of money) and effort for a proof of concept (POC) with
New technologies such as containerized applications are driving innovation and productivity like never before, but with these advancements come some concerns. As adoption of containerized applications in production rises, so should concerns about security best practices. Today’s attacks move fast, often in seconds rather than minutes or hours,
While we were exhibiting and presenting at Black Hat in August, we heard from many booth visitors how important support and service are to them. While that doesn’t come as a surprise, we were alarmed to hear they regularly spend hours on the phone trying to make their chosen endpoint security solution work effectively. It just shouldn’t be like
How MSSPs Can Benefit from Multi-tenancy Features in Endpoint Security Platforms
Multi-tenancy management is a critical capability/function for MSSPs because it enables them to manage multiple environments for multiple clients (many of whom are SMBs) from a single pane of glass. Moreover, multi-tenancy allows for easier and more efficient
Visibility is just the beginning:
Visibility is the key starting point to any security stack. It’s a lot easier to defend against something you can see. This is why detection is at the beginning of any incident response playbook. However, with the spread of today’s high-velocity attacks, visibility and awareness may fail you in ways you don’t
As you may know, Gartner released its Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms this week, and we are honored to be included along with 23 other leading endpoint security vendors. We’re thrilled to be highlighted in the Honorable Mentions section with three other successful, forward-looking companies.
If you’ve ever played a ball game, say basketball or baseball, you know that if you drop the ball, you’ve lost the chance to score and maybe even win the game. The same can be said in endpoint security. If you don’t react immediately, you lose the chance to contain and mitigate the threat so it does not move laterally throughout the
