About this talk

Endpoint Security can either be the first or the last line of defense. From the beginning, it has primarily been accomplished by adding some type of shielding such as a simple anti-virus program but has since evolved into EDR (endpoint detection and response) and XDR (eXtended detection and response). Ensuring the endpoint is hardened against threats is the most effective mechanism to secure endpoints as the vast majority of breaches are caused by known vulnerabilities that exploit unpatched devices. This presentation will provide information on how to create peace of mind regarding all your endpoints by increasing overall vulnerability and patch management. Join this discussion to learn: - Why EDR, XDR, and MDR are not enough for complete endpoint security management; - Understand the overall damage caused by unpatched vulnerabilities; - How to increase overall visibility into the status and behaviors of endpoints and the value this provides to the organization; - Explore how the endpoint security solutions must include all types of endpoints including mobile and virtual; - Ensure all endpoints are up-to-date with patches, how to automate the process, and what to do when they are not; - Encourage collaboration between IT and security teams in regards to endpoint security management.
