Protect Every Endpoint, Everywhere

The world of work has changed. With users working from anywhere, security gaps are widening. As malware becomes more evasive, traditional antivirus falls short in protecting your endpoints. Protecting all devices your employees use to access company resources is critical. You need to see an attack coming, not wait to respond to it after it reaches your endpoints. The way we work isn’t the only thing that has evolved, security threats have changed, too. The threat on endpoints is massive, and here’s why:

Gaps in protection
When users and endpoints are off-network, antivirus is often the only protection available. This is not enough to handle today’s advanced threats, including zero-day exploits. 57% of organizations say that mobile devices are one of the most challenging areas to defend.

Lack of visibility
Organizations have limited visibility into user and endpoint activity, and they lack the context to see malware — where it came from, where it’s been, and what it’s doing — once it lands on an endpoint. You can’t detect what you can’t see.

User error
An attacker sends out a phishing email with a malicious attachment or link. Despite training and/or countless warnings, users inevitably click on things that they shouldn’t. 56% of organizations say that user behavior is one of the most challenging areas to defend.

It’s time for more effective security
Attackers are getting smarter, faster, and harder to catch. Ransomware in particular has grown into a billion-dollar industry as targeted attacks become more frequent. According to Cyber Security Ventures, a new organization will fall victim to ransomware every 11 seconds in 2021.

The evolution of how we work and the evolution of internet threats together add up to a new reality for IT. You can no longer rely on network-level protections alone to keep your data secure. Traditional security can’t extend protection to mobile users or handle the exponential increase in internet traffic. Secure web gateways, firewalls, and sandboxing are important tools — but they provide help only after an attack occurs.

As a Cisco partner we offer cloud-delivered endpoint protection and advanced endpoint detection and response across multi-domain control points. Solutions that stop breaches and block malware, then rapidly detect, contain, and remediate advanced threats that evade front-line defenses.

  • Prevent: Block known malware automatically leveraging the best global threat intelligence and enforce Zero Trust by blocking risky endpoints from gaining access to applications.
  • Detect: Run complex queries and advanced investigations across all endpoints, and continuously monitor all file activity to detect stealthy malware.
  • Respond: Rapidly contain the attack by isolating an infected endpoint and remediating malware across PCs, Macs, Linux, servers, and mobile devices (Android and iOS).

With 70% of breaches originating on endpoints, there is no question that endpoints are a top target of attacks. Today, you need deep visibility into what users are doing on their endpoints, what’s happening with the files located there, and where that endpoint is trying to connect to on the internet. And you need the control to stop malicious behavior as soon as it’s detected.
