Your organisation is only as strong as your weakest endpoint. Download our webinar, “Securing Your IT Environment for the Future,” where we discuss how your organisation can defend itself from current risks and prepare for the security challenges of the future.
Organisations are now faced with significant security challenges due to the increased role of hybrid and remote working models. With the number of endpoints increasing in every organisation, it's more important than ever to minimise risks and vulnerabilities. One way to safeguard your organisation's IT environment is through a defined security strategy combining different methodologies to keep attackers at bay and keep your data safe.
This means that we must leverage cloud-enabled endpoint capabilities for unified and secure endpoint management. Our webinar goes into detail on how we can use Microsoft tools to achieve this.
Auxilion’s Modern Workplace Report 2021 included several revealing and concerning statistics around endpoint security:
-12% (1 in 10) of Irish office workers wouldn’t immediately tell their employer if they realised the device they were working on had been compromised with malware or ransomware
-30% of office workers have clicked on a link or attachment in an email from an unrecognised sender
-25% of respondents admitted that they use the same passwords for work as they do for personal accounts or devices, demonstrating a lack of clear compliance policies around security
-27% of respondents revealed that they have ignored a security update request on a device used for work, an issue which can be addressed by using Mandatory Security Updates from Windows
These statistics demonstrate the importance of comprehensive, cohesive end point security infrastructure that is capable of meeting new security challenges.
We’ll also look at some other industry surveys and the insights they have produced around end point security. These include:
-The Auxilion & Aruba Secure Hybrid Working Report from 2021, which found that 49% of respondents don’t think that their company has adequate security and data loss prevention measures in place
-The Microsoft Digital Defence Report from October 2021, which found that 25 of 28 businesses indicated that they do not have the necessary tools in place so secure their AI systems and that security professionals are looking for guidance in this space.
-The Microsoft Digital Defence Report also found that basic security hygiene, such as turning on multifactor authentication, utilizing a password manager for strong and unique passwords, and using secure communication channels for campaign communications still protects against 98% of attacks.
-Microsoft Hybrid Security research, which found that 30% of employees still use personal email accounts to share confidential work materials, that 42% of employers have done nothing to secure such devices, and that around one third of employees use the same passwords to log into work and personal devices.
These statistics highlight how vulnerable many businesses still are to cyber attacks- but also how a few key steps can significantly reduce this vulnerability. During the webinar we will discuss how you can overcome these common security issues for employees, wherever they are working.
Zero Trust Technology
How can we deploy Microsoft Endpoint Manager to successfully provide endpoint device management and security in a unified and reliable way? This is one of the key questions our webinar will answer. It is now regarded as standard procedure to employ a Zero Trust model in deploying endpoint security. We’ll outline how to implement this kind of model effectively.
We’ll also be looking at how to protect user devices against a range of threats using Microsoft Zero Trust technology with unique capabilities. We’ll discuss how we can leverage automated provisioning, configuration management, and software updates to make your endpoint security as comprehensive and reliable as possible..
