BIOS Security – The Next Frontier for Endpoint Protection

The BIOS is considered one of the most valuable parts of a computing system because of its crucial role to the overall operating system. Without the BIOS firmware chip, your computer wouldn’t even be able to load its home screen. Something many of us take for granted.

Dell commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the evolving IT and security needs of companies managing beaches to their hardware- and silicon-level devices and supply chains.

KEY FINDINGS:

  • Attackers have already begun breaching security at the BIOS level.

 

  • Hardware security initiatives are largely inconsistent and ineffective.
  • The complexity of hardware breaches leaves organizations struggling to prevent or address damage.
