So far in this blog series, we’ve discussed the state of endpoint security, and the challenges of keeping systems up to date and integrating multiple products. This installment will take a look at how the cloud solves our third challenge: managing multiple agents.


Too Much To Keep Track Of

A good security system requires a variety of solutions:  antivirus, HIPS, EDR, LiveOps etc. While having multiple systems in place is necessary, it is also challenging due to the fact that each solution comes with its own unique and individual agent, policies and configurations.  For each agent that is deployed on the endpoint, you have to track where it’s deployed, how it is configured, what it is doing, and what issues it may cause. Most organizations have thousands of endpoints, making this a headache inducing chore.

  • IT and security personnel are tasked with managing and maintaining multiple endpoint agents that often have fragmented security systems.

Bring It Together With The Cloud

The cloud consolidates disparate solutions easily on a single agent. Integrated policies keep all endpoints current, and a single, centralized console integrates all workflows. The cloud also collects, stores, and analyzes massive amounts of data, which can be  leveraged for smarter, more proactive protection across a variety of security services. As a result, you have one agent that performs the tasks of many.

Everything can be easily configured and deployed through the cloud, and services can be added without requiring new and different solutions.  Plus, with a fully converged agent, you can eliminate products that you no longer need, making things simpler for organizations and employees, alike.

How the Cloud Solves 10 Endpoint Security Problems for SMBs
Small and medium size businesses (SMBs) are facing massive cyber security challenges. In fact, according to the Verizon 2017 Data Breach Investigations report, 61% of breach victims in the previous year were businesses with fewer than 1000 employees. It’s time to proactively protect your company, and the place to start is your endpoints. Why? Because IDC research found that 70% of successful breaches begin at the endpoint. Traditional endpoint security can result in ten real and tangible problems that require lots of time and resources to address: 1. Managing Infrastructure 2. Preventing New Attacks 3. Getting the Help You Need 4. Identifying Problems 5. Responding Quickly to Threats 6. Keeping Up to Date 7. Securing Remote Workers 8. Integrating Security Products 9. Managing Multiple Agents 10. Slowing Down Endpoints
