The threat landscape continues to innovate with increased volume and tenacity. In 2016, 53% of cybersecurity professionals reported an increase in attacks, and in 2017, 80% believe it is likely or very likely they will be attacked. We’ve seen successful attacks steal customer data and shut down business operations, in all industries in every region across the globe.
Whether it’s a phishing email, malware, or advanced persistent threat (APT), the attacker’s primary target is the endpoint. As a result, organizations have made great efforts to protect the corporate endpoints. As new threat techniques emerge, protection measures are challenged to keep up. Global ransomware attacks, such as WannaCry and Jaff, are good examples of this. In 2016, 62% of enterprises experienced a ransomware attack; and the world saw the WannaCry ransomware successfully lock up more than 200,000 computers across the globe. Only 53% of organizations have a formal process in place to deal with them.
This guide details the core requirements to help you navigate your enterprise endpoint protection solution analysis, and it provides a solution questionnaire to help you with your evaluation process.
