Advanced endpoint protection takes on the latest exploits
This article is part of the Information Security issue of July 2017
Scale is one measure of a security challenge. The AV-Test Institute registered 100 million-plus new malicious programs during a 12-month period ending in May 2017. Another way to gauge a security problem's severity is by its price tag. The average cost of a data breach rose from $3.8 million to $4 million in 2016, according to Ponemon Institute's "Cost of Data Breach Study." Grand View Research Inc. expects the endpoint security market to surge to a $27.05 billion valuation by 2024, up from $10.12 billion in 2015. In short, an endpoint infection that leads to a breach will have you paying at least twice. CISOs and directors who stay apprised of advanced endpoint protection developments can make informed decisions about where to invest in this market and provide input on its course of growth. Endpoint security is making strides in behavior analytics, sandboxing and machine learning, increasing its capacity to mitigate advanced malware. These developments play a significant role in defending the enterprise against evolving threats...
