This blog is the third in the series: 10 Endpoint Security Problems Solved by the Cloud.  Last week we investigated how cloud based security solutions are able to keep software up to date.  This week we’re tackling problem #2:  Integrating security products.


Your Systems Are Siloed

Cybersecurity isn’t only about endpoints.  In fact, most organizations have significant security investments in a variety of areas such as security information and event management (SIEM), analytics, network security, and threat intelligence.  And each of these core layers houses dozens of other products within them.  Your best picture of the threat landscape comes from connecting the dots across all the security data you have access to—across your endpoints, across your network, and across your SIEM.

Integrating these security solutions, and aligning them to work together can be immensely challenging.   Without the ability to create a single, unified view of your environmentacross all your security productsthe value of each product is greatly reduced.  More often than not, these products operate and are controlled independently, storing siloed copies of similar data, and managing isolated workflows.  This creates friction within processes and between teams. According to a recent report, 49% of organizations describe their endpoint detection and response (EDR) systems as either partly integrated or not integrated at all and  a mere 4% consider their security analytics to be fully integrated.  While not surprising, these numbers are concerning and raise the question, “Isn’t there an easier way?”

The Cloud Unifies Products

The short answer: Yes.  Cloud APIs are simple, highly standardized, and offer pre-built support to unify the entire suite of security products being used.  Seamless, pre-built integrations tie products together and allow integrations between endpoint security and custom-built systems and tools. They even allow for the development of custom workflows and can automate practices for any scenario, making security easier and more efficient.

We’ve established that best protection happens when organizations have comprehensive access to all their security data. With Cloud APIs, critical endpoint data is shared across the entire security stack, improving visibility drastically.  Not only does analysis and threat response become more efficient, but investments in all existing security products are maximized.

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.
