Complicated is the word that best describes the modern world of the IT manager. IT managers in small or medium sized businesses (SMBs) face a particularly challenging environment where the demands of the organization are high and resources are limited. Security is becoming a major part of the IT manager’s job and delivering adequate security for any organization is more challenging than ever due to the changing threat landscape, increased mobility of end users and the costs required to implement in-depth security.
The endpoint is the last mile for the organization. In many cases it is the last line of defense against threats and the majority of companies have an endpoint solution in place. However, the challenges around effectively securing and managing the endpoint are significant and go far beyond simply picking a specific product from a vendor. Administrators have to ensure consistency, constant updates and protection for employees both inside and outside the corporate network.
This paper will address some of the key reasons why managing endpoint security is so complex. The current threat landscape, the sophistication of attacks and other pressures facing administrators today are some of the reasons that contribute to this complexity that in many cases can endanger the organization.
It will then provide an introduction as to why a hosted endpoint solution is the answer to this complex relationship and finally, it will introduce Symantec Endpoint Protection.cloud, a solution that can help transform this relationship status from “it’s complicated” to “happily ever after”.
