To be competitive, businesses are moving forward with digital transformation projects enabled by cloud services. The number of endpoints operating in these dynamically expanding environments is exploding. According to one estimate, there will be 29.3 billion networked devices globally by 2023, up from 18.4 billion in 2018, 26% of which will exist in the business sector.1 The perimeter that security teams are expected to protect now extends far beyond the traditional network. The edge of the network is now defined by endpoints, wherever they are located.
Do legacy endpoint security solutions serve security teams well in successfully defending against breaches in dynamic, distributed environments? Are they smart, scalable and flexible enough to protect organizations from the fast, stealthy and complex attacks that can compromise access to valuable assets and critical business operations?
This white paper helps security and IT professionals better understand the costs and risks of trying to make legacy endpoint security solutions effective in today’s threat environment — and why only a cloud-native approach to endpoint protection can provide the visibility, intelligence, scalability and speed that security teams need to be successful.
