With 2% to 8% of enterprise PCs are infected with malware at any given time, 80% of data stolen coming from servers within enterprises, incident analysis shows that traditional protection tools such as anti-virus offer even more dismal protection when faced with low-volume targeted attacks.
Gartner recommends Application Control and Whitelisting as "foundational" to protect endpoints, ensuring that only authorized software can run, rendering the APT useless and ensuring you never get malware again.
Success requires a simple, adaptive approach that follows the 4 key components of Trust, Detect, Protect and Measure to allow you to:
· Understand the trust of all software in your enterprise
· Identify high risk files and users
· Stop Advanced Persistent Threats
· Measure your ongoing risk and compliance posture
