Carbon Black recently published a whitepaper on the reasons and benefits of moving endpoint security to the cloud; this is the first excerpt from that guide, which you can find here. For more information about how the Cb Predictive Security Cloud, Carbon Black’s comprehensive endpoint protection platform, delivers next-generation security services through the cloud, check out our weekly Cb Defense Live Demo, every Wednesday at 2PM EST, 11AM PST.


The Cloud is Easy:
Simplified Operations

The cloud has been a transformative force across many disciplines within IT, and security is no different.

Infrastructure is inherently costly to manage, but what makes it even more challenging for security professionals is the impact that lapses in proper maintenance can have on security effectiveness. The threat landscape is changing so quickly that a security system left unpatched, misconfigured, or without the latest enhancements creates substantial risk.

Running endpoint security natively in the cloud greatly simplifies its operation, resulting in a number of benefits.

First, managing the system becomes much, much easier. All the costs and complexity related to infrastructure management disappear — storage, operating systems, hotfixes, VPNs — meaning you can deploy faster and spend your money where it counts.

This has an especially big impact when it comes to systems outside the corporate network. It’s notoriously difficult to keep antivirus running smoothly in branch offices and among the mobile workforce. When managed from the cloud, these systems are treated no differently than those at the main office, equipped with the same high level of protection no matter where in the world they are.

Perhaps most importantly, the cloud keeps your security system up to date. Whether simple definitions of new threats or entirely novel detection algorithms for advanced attacks, the cloud takes the burden of these updates off the shoulders of the admins, deploying new enhancements automatically and regularly.

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.
