Why is Endpoint Security More Than a Nice to Have?
As the world shifts to a remote or hybrid work model, more users are working from anywhere, from any device, than at any time in history, and attackers are quickly adjusting their tactics to take advantage of this change.
Businesses have been left weighing the benefits of enabling BYOD (allowing their end-users to access corporate resources that traditionally required VPN or on-premises access) against the increased risk of the same users unintentionally installing ransomware or other malware while performing non-work-related functions on their personal devices.
By enabling BYOD using a Zero Trust model, enterprises can reduce provisioning costs and avoid additional hardware purchases for work-from-home use, but they need to be able to protect their corporate assets on these devices, while still allowing the users to perform non-work functions on these same devices.
According to Microsoft Security Blog, 5 billion threats are detected on devices monthly
