With today's highly distributed workforce and their potentially compromised home networks, the need for protecting the endpoint has never been greater. The challenge, of course, is that so many of today's endpoints are completely out of the control of the IT team. Further complicating the matter is that many work-from-home employees have no idea how to do such basic security tasks as updating firmware in their routers or running basic security checks on their network and hardware. But endpoint security issues don't begin and end with the pandemic and remote employees — there are a myriad of challenges facing IT staffs trying to protect and defend the endpoints that exist in the cloud, business partners' data centers, service accounts, kiosks, and a plethora of other endpoints. This ebook looks at today's overriding endpoint security issues, as well as the challenges security teams face in detecting and responding to endpoint vulnerabilities when endpoints are beyond the physical reach of security teams.
