The True Cost of Free Security
Every organisation has deployed anti-virus/anti-malware solutions, but how much have you actually reduced your risk? Aberdeen's analysis not only confirms the high risk of unprotected endpoints, but also demonstrates the endpoint protection really does reduce risk. in addition, it confirms that "free" endpoint protection (e.g. Microsoft) is better than no protection all, but also shows that in fact it is not really free. Enterprise-class endpoint protection (e.g. McAfee) actually reduces risk by 60-70% compared tot he "free solution, even net of the incremental licensing cost.
