Recent research from Ponemon Institute reveals that malware attacks are increasing and are significantly impacting IT operating expenses. Of those, advanced persistent threats and hacking pose the biggest headache to IT security pros. However, only 12 percent of survey respondents believe current anti-virus/anti-malware technology is “very effective in protecting their IT endpoints from today’s malware risk.” Moreover, a mere 5 percent plan to increase their use of the technology.
The issue is exacerbated by the surge in personal devices being used in the corporate environment. In fact, many IT directors in small and medium enterprises (SMEs) are left wondering how they can manage and support all those different devices and still achieve their security and compliance objectives.
This white paper underscores why it’s critical for SMEs to protect all endpoints – not just mobile devices – in the operating environment. It also explains the challenges of applying stringent security across all endpoints and balancing that with convenience and ease-of-use for employees. In addition, it outlines what to seek in a solution for overcoming these challenges and achieving security and compliance goals.
