Last week we looked at how the cloud keeps your endpoints from becoming sluggish and pointed out why it is uniquely positioned to predict new threats.  This week, we’re going to examine why the cloud outperforms traditional antivirus when it comes to identifying problems.


Can’t Fix What You Can’t See 

A single endpoint in a system can generate anywhere from 10,000 to 40,000 individual events in a single day events that, if you could see them, would give readily help you identify malicious activity that could lead to a harmful attack.  Unfortunately, most endpoint security solutions don’t give you the visibility you need. Without comprehensive visibility into endpoint activity, you can’t pinpoint what problems exist, where they are located, how important they are to fix, or what resources are required to fix them.  Without these critical pieces, your team can only be reactive and building an effective security program is nearly impossible. 

The Cloud Gives You Complete Visibility

The cloud makes finding new attacks easy, and gives you the tools you need to take immediate action. You can quickly analyze unfiltered data, whether related to a threat or not.  Streaming analytics connects these endpoint events together to give you a clear picture of what happened and when. So not only do you have complete real-time visibility into all threat-related activities, you also see which are a priority, see what else is affected in your environment, and quickly identify root cause.  The cloud also gives you a broader picture of trends and patterns, so you can remediate future attacks more quickly. And, you can easily communicate the state of your endpoints and the success of your security program to your management team.

7 Experts on Moving to a Cloud-Based Endpoint Security Platform
Everyday companies put more of their assets in digital form. Healthcare records, retail purchases and personnel files are just some of the many examples of how our entire lives have moved online. While this makes our interconnected lives more convenient, it also makes them more vulnerable to attack. The monetary benefits of exploiting these vulnerabilities have created an extremely profitable underground economy; one that mimics the same one we all participate in and has led to an increase in the sophistication and frequency of attacks. At the same time, mobility and cloud are changing the security landscape. We’ve moved from a centralized to a decentralized model as end users increasingly work on-the-go and access critical business applications and resources from anywhere. As such there is more emphasis on the endpoint and individual identities - from both the defender and the attacker - than ever before. As endpoints become smarter, new challenges emerge: emerging ransomware and 0-day exploits infect all kinds of systems with ease, while many attackers use no malware at all to accomplish their malicious goals. With all this change, we spoke to 7 leading security experts to identify what’s working and how they’ve influenced their organization to make the necessary changes before becoming the next victim.
