End Point Security: Proactive Solutions for Networkwide Plat Forms
Source: IDG (International Data Group)
The past few years have witnessed several highly publicized cases of security breaches at major corporations. These high-profile incidents have emphasized the need to protect and control sensitive corporate information within the enterprise environment. As more data resides at the endpoint, administrators are being forced to defend a new architecture that has critical corporate resources dispersed around the globe. Fortifying the network perimeter, essentially placing sensitive data in a locked vault with towering walls, is no longer sufficient for enterprise security. The focus of many security solutions is rapidly moving away from a network-centric perspective and concentrating on the endpoints. Additionally, the threat landscape is evolving at an exponential rate that cannot be addressed by traditional security solutions.
