This week we will continue our investigation into the top 10 endpoint security problems the cloud solves.  Our blog today moves on from the last dilemma we discussed, securing remote workers, and examines the issue of slowing down endpoints.

Legacy AV Slows Down Endpoints

Traditional AV is as frustrating to your employees as it is to you.  Antivirus scans and other protection modes require a lot of local processing power and hard disk scanning, which makes it almost impossible for your employees to do any work while they’re running.  And visibility with traditional AV software is incredibly limited. Any issue at all can be a major drain on resources and productivity, especially if you need to re-image employees’ machines.

Interruptions and aggravations like these don’t simply bother you and your employees; they can also have a wider, more costly impact on an entire organization. Savvy employees will simply turn off their endpoint security altogether – a situation that at best puts you in noncompliance, and at worst opens up the door for a major breach.

  • We were] trying to find a really comprehensive security solution without impacting the behavior of our endpoints and the usability of them. A lot of them tend to take up a lot of system resources.

The Cloud Makes It Lightweight

The cloud has virtually unlimited storage and processing, and complex tasks once performed directly on endpoints are offloaded to the cloud.  Employees won’t notice an impact on their device because there is only one lightweight agent performing all security processes, without draining computing resources.  This creates an optimized experience, leaving your employees happy and productive. At the same time, you have full visibility into your endpoints to keep them protected, drastically reducing or even eliminating the need for re-imaging.
