In 2019, 70% of successful breaches started at the endpoint. And now, with the large-scale shift to remote working due to COVID 19, the explosion of end-user devices, BYOD, and endpoints working outside of the network, many organizations are still trying to determine the best security strategies, giving attackers time to take advantage and capitalize on the uncertainty.
Threats to endpoints can come in the form of external attacks as well as insider threats, which may be either malicious or unintentional in nature. A compromised endpoint can give an attacker a foothold within an environment, enabling them to launch further attacks on systems to access data and compromise additional endpoints via lateral movement.
Our partners at BeyondTrust outline how to evolve your strategy to a preventative approach in this report on The 5 Critical Steps In Your Endpoint Security Strategy.
