BOSTON, Nov. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Confer, a leader in endpoint detection and response (EDR), will outline cost-effective methods to protecting servers, laptops and mobile devices against advanced persistent threats in a November 17 webinar, Improving Cost Efficiencies for Endpoint Security.
Defending the 3D Endpoint
With employees moving seamlessly in and out of the corporate perimeter, bringing their own device, and working from home, it's no surprise that 71 percent of security breaches involve user devices according to Verizon(1). Security teams face the challenge of what Confer calls the distributed, diverse and demanding (3D) endpoint.
"A vast quantity of high-value information is stored on endpoints that exist beyond the reach of an organization's network-based protections," said Paul Morville, founder and vice president of products, Confer. "These endpoints require 'always on' security, which traditionally has been more an aspiration than a reality. Demanding end users also play a role; while they want to be protected, they have little patience with security measures that slow down their devices or disrupt their work."
During the 30-minute webinar, Confer will explore the costs of maintaining traditional signature-based products. Confer will also offer strategies for reducing cost and complexity in deploying endpoint protection.
