The problem with great feats of engineering is that they’re often conducted in remote parts of the world. That can place a considerable strain on IT security, particularly where there is the need to manage multiple endpoints even though local technical support may not be available. This was the problem facing Pöyry, a Finnish-based global engineering provider. Although the company had a base policy for IT security worldwide, individual users in any of the 140 countries were left to administer their own IT security. By standardizing on Symantec Endpoint Protection, Pöyry now benefits from one unified approach to endpoint security. The threat from potentially damaging attacks, such as rootkits, zero-day attacks, and mutating spyware is diminished; and business and technology risk are both reduced. Efficiency is increasing too: the number of security management servers has been cut by 35 percent; and the solution is forecast to deliver complete return on investment in less than a year.
