The importance of people and processes in delivering solid security.
Changes in the ways that we create, store, and consume information in the digital, connected age have dramatically increased the need to protect our information assets. Traditionally, an "endpoint" referred to a desktop computer; today that definition has expanded to include laptops, tablets, mobile smartphones, and even removable storage devices such as USB flash drives.
In addition to the proliferation of devices to protect, new and more dangerous malware is surfacing at an alarming rate. From targeted spear-phishing to aggressive zero-day exploits, attackers are working hard to circumvent traditional security measures - and in many high profile cases, succeeding. While not all organizations are alike in their security requirements, there are some key considerations Info-Tech Research Group encourages everyone to consider when evaluating their endpoint security strategy:
There are many platforms and devices that might present avenues for the leakage of sensitive data;
Computing devices are not the only ones that need to be protected;
An increasing need for multiple layers of interconnected protection.
