New Whitepaper Reveals Why Organizations Need a Layered Approach to Endpoint Security to Better Control and Protect Application and Server Infrastructure Against New and Emerging Threats

Scottsdale, Ariz. (PRWEB) September 17, 2009 -- In today's Web 2.0 world, software is more distributed than ever before. Employees download a variety of Internet applications on a regular basis, with each new download altering system configurations and increasing risk exposure to malicious software. Malware is growing at an exponential rate - more than 16 million unique samples reported in 2008.¹ Financially motivated cybercriminals are designing malware attacks to specifically bypass traditional security methods and ultimately gain access to networks with sensitive information. Software development of malicious programs has become a vibrant industry largely because the malware products can easily evade detection by AV scanners to achieve their goal of stealing identities or other confidential information.

Organizations have traditionally invested heavily in anti-virus solutions, often stacking multiple layers along the data path in an attempt to stop malware from infecting endpoints. While AV plays a crucial role in identifying known malware and cleaning infected systems, the reality is that relying on layers of the same defense mechanism leaves organizations exposed to attacks and data theft.

In this audiocast, Moving Beyond AV to Ensure Secure and Compliant Endpoints with Eric Ogren of the Ogren Group, and Paul Zimski, vice president of market strategy with Lumension®, the global leader in endpoint management and security, examines the following:

 
  • Today's dynamic threat landscape and how it impacts organizations
  • AV's role in today's IT environment
  • How application whitelisting enables IT to effectively deliver a true defense-in-depth capability, filling in the gaps that AV was not designed to cover

Also, check out the Ogren Group Special Report, Endpoint Security: Moving Beyond AV commissioned by Lumension®, which presents the market demand for application whitelisting with recommended actions for security decision makers. Information in this report derives from Ogren Group research and interviews with enterprise security executives of global organizations.
