The Hidden Costs of Endpoint Security 


Ransomware, Fileless Malware and Management Issues
When it comes to endpoint security, CISOs are deeply concerned. Most assume that their endpoints will be compromised at some point, and they are probably right. According to a recent Forrester study, 74% of organizations indicated that they have suffered a business-impacting cyberattack attributed to remote work vulnerabilities. They know that traditional antivirus (AV) solutions are insufficient to secure endpoints and that they need more advanced protection. In fact, since people started working from home, breaches have intensified, now costing on average $1.07M more than before the pandemic, which is nearly a 10% increase.
While first-generation endpoint detection and response (EDR) solutions improved endpoint security by offering detection and response capabilities, they also incurred hidden costs. Their inadequate response times expose organizations to risk from ransomware and other fast-acting threats.
Also, security staff struggle to triage a flood of alerts, which increases workplace stress and misclassification of threats. And manual remediation tasks such as wipe-and-reimage overwhelm IT staff and lead to production downtime. There is little doubt that current EDR solutions lack the speed and automation that CISOs need.
