Description

According to Gartner, organizations are expected to spend $150 billion on IT security and risk management technologies in 2021 alone. You would think with that much money invested in security we would be several steps ahead of the bad guys. However, hardly a week goes by without a new high-profile cyberattack. Despite the long-standing belief that deploying more security solutions will result in greater protection against threats, the truth of the matter can be very different. That’s because every security application added to an endpoint device has the potential to increase complexity and risk exposure, contribute to application decay, and affect the overall health of the device.

Key Takeaways:

  • Provide an overview of recent changes in the cybersecurity landscape
  • Look at key factors that are impacting the efficacy of security controls/applications on endpoints
  • Explore mitigation strategies that assure that mission-critical applications remain installed, healthy, and effective
  • Understand what to look for from your vendor when it comes to application persistence; example: Smart Eye Technology
