Prepare to Shore Up Your Endpoint Protection Strategy
September 21, 2020

With more data moving to the cloud, protecting endpoints is more vital than ever. It takes a multitactic approach to address evolving security threats. Use this checklist to ensure your organization is prepared.

Key Considerations for Implementing a Next-Generation Endpoint Security Solution

Do you have an understanding of what needs to be protected in your network?

What are you looking to cover (client computers, file/application servers, etc.)? Do you need to move to a cloud-based solution to help protect remote users? Do you need visibility into assets and activity as a whole? Do you need to add any protection to your cloud workloads?

Do you understand which tools are needed for a multitactic approach to endpoint security?

The right blend of protection technologies is imperative, so make sure you understand the standard tactics available like signature-based techniques and web reputation, along with advanced capabilities like behavioral monitoring and predictive machine learning. 

Do you understand how features like EDR can bolster endpoint security?

EDR tools provide continuous real-time monitoring to determine the root cause of threats and incidents. But many organizations find they are not able to understand the results they get from this security monitoring. Are you confident you can understand and react quickly and effectively to a cybersecurity incident?

Do you have the internal resources to handle endpoint security, or do you need managed services?

Be sure to evaluate whether you have the internal bandwidth for an EDR tool that provides continuous endpoint monitoring and incident response, or whether you need a managed EDR service that provides 24/7 alert monitoring, investigation and threat hunting services.
