The End of Your Network as You Know It


Security professionals charged with protecting corporate endpoints face a dilemma. On the one hand, they have to make sure that the ever-expanding landscape of network endpoints are protected, but they also know that securing these devices is a bit of a lost cause. The reason is simple: Most security incidents are caused by human error. What they are really protecting is not the device but rather the organization’s network and data. It has become almost cliché that the castle-and-moat mentality of protecting the perimeter at all costs is no longer sufficient to keep attackers and hackers from infiltrating the corporate network and stealing the crown jewels. So, locking down endpoints and doing little else is not going to make anyone’s network more secure. Frankly, that assumes you actually know where all the endpoints are and have physical access to them. Today that is not a given.
