Three Ways to Reshape Endpoint Security

Malicious targeting exposes serious gaps in corporate security defenses

by Chris Schwartzbauer, Senior Vice President, Shavlik Technologies

During the past 15 years, organizations have built up defensive barriers for the servers and databases that house their most sensitive data. But today's threats aren't restricted to the data center. They have moved downstream, to endpoints outside the protective cocoon of the data center, providing hackers an on-ramp to the network.

Featured Case Study

Reducing Time and Staff Required to Meet Customer Service Level Requirements for Security and Compliance

Shavlik
Looking for a more efficient patching solution, as well as supporting the needs of a customer to meet a PCI compliance deadline and avoid potential penalties, Web-hosting firm ORCS Web was looking for a solution that could be implemented in days, not weeks or months. A chance visit to a booth at a tradeshow and a bold promise from a vendor that they could be implemented, operational and achieving the company's patching goals in less than two hours seemed more fairytale than fact. But it wasn't. And now ORCS Web is helping customers of all sizes meet their PCI requirements.

Reshaping Your Endpoint Security Strategy 

Business as usual when it comes to managing and securing endpoints is no longer affordable. Not just because of tight budgets and shrinking IT staff, but because threats are changing. Today's polymorphic threats aren't restricted to the data center. These modern threats have moved downstream, to endpoints outside the protective cocoon of the data center, providing hackers an on-ramp to your network.

Security "Point" Solutions Are Not a Four-letter Word

Large software vendors with a healthy appetite for acquisition would have buyers of security software believe that consolidation is a good thing; that bigger is better, that built-in is tops, and that individual best-of-breed point products are a nuisance to be avoided, a four-letter word if you will. While consolidation can be a good thing, flying the same corporate brand doesn't always equate to integration or operational efficiency. Patch management is a good example where an individual point solution is not only desirable, but may be required.
