Malware and mobility have become the most critical issues facing organizations today as they look to protect their endpoint devices. In order for consumers to have the latest information on these and other IT security challenges, Lumension® a global leader in endpoint management and security today announced the availability of The 2014 Endpoint Security Buyer’s Guide.
Designed to provide clear buying criteria for those that are looking at endpoint security solutions in the near future, the Endpoint Security Buyer’s Guide features updated research from independent analyst firm, Securosis on endpoint management planning and prioritizing and key endpoint security functions like patch and configuration management. Also included are important considerations for anti-malware, mobility and BYOD.
“As much as the industry wants to discuss advanced attacks and talk about how sophisticated adversaries have become, the simple truth remains that many successful attacks result from simple operational failure,” Mike Rothman, analyst and President, Securosis said in the Endpoint Security Buyer’s Guide. “So yes, you do need to pay attention to advanced malware protection tactics, but if you forget about the fundamental operational aspects of managing endpoint hygiene, the end result will be the same.”
