The world has seen an exponential growth in cybercrime in the past few years. This rise is a cause for concern for businesses, and it’s becoming more apparent with the increase in remote work. The traditional castle-and-moat security approach won’t cut it anymore. Companies need to adopt a multilayered approach to their security strategy to thwart threats effectively.
Endpoint protection, a process of securing devices that provide an entry point to a company’s network, is a crucial part of a company’s security measures. For MSPs, securing their clients’ endpoints is an ever-growing responsibility. It’s becoming increasingly challenging for MSPs to provide comprehensive cybersecurity services for their clients amid the rise of remote work.
MSPs need to adopt a multilayered approach to secure endpoints. The approach should focus on proactive, active, and reactive strategies to prevent breach attempts, detect and thwart active threats, and respond to threats. A vulnerability assessment is an excellent proactive strategy to identify and patch security weaknesses. Real-time monitoring and AI-based analysis can detect irregular usage patterns and previous attacks and prevent future attacks. Remote control and predefined processes for managing disaster recovery and restoring client data from backups are crucial in responding to threats.
While AI and ML tools can provide a comprehensive approach to endpoint protection, they may not proactively deflect or detect novel threats. Sophisticated in-memory or living-off-the-land attacks require MSPs to consider endpoint protection from a more holistic perspective, leveraging comprehensive observability and innovative security technology.
– 98% of MSPs are struggling to provide comprehensive cybersecurity services amid the rise of remote work.
– Traditional castle-and-moat security is no longer effective in protecting companies’ networks and data.
– Endpoint protection is a multilayered approach that requires proactive, active, and reactive strategies to keep threats at bay.
– MSPs need to adopt a holistic perspective on endpoint protection, leveraging comprehensive observability and innovative security technology to provide comprehensive cybersecurity services to their clients.
In conclusion, endpoint protection is a vital part of a company’s security measures. MSPs must adopt a multilayered approach to secure endpoints to provide comprehensive cybersecurity services to their clients. A proactive, active, and reactive approach is necessary to prevent, detect, and respond to endpoint threats.
