Why MSPs Should Expect No-Conflict Endpoint Security

Reading Time: ~ 3 min. “Antivirus programs use techniques to stop viruses that are very “virus-like” in and of themselves, and in most cases if you try to run two antivirus programs, or full security suites, each believes the other is malicious and they then engage in a battle to the death (of system usability, anyway).” “

Worried About Apache Struts? Stay One Step Ahead of Endpoint Attacks

Endpoint attacks can come from any direction and many sources. Just consider the reported vulnerabilities found in Apache Struts and the damage caused by WannaCry and Petya. Companies need to stay one step ahead of endpoint attacks, but they struggle due to a lack of visibility of endpoint status, the complexity of investigations and ineffective remediation.

The Time for IT Asset Management Is Now

The benefits of a comprehensive IT asset management (ITAM) program may seem obvious since it provides the data needed to strategically and tactically manage the life cycle of IT assets from purchase to end of life. Of course, companies can leverage IT asset management to reduce costs, improve operational efficiency, determine the full cost of existing invest

Threat Hunting Services Are Now a Basic Necessity

For the past few years, the security industry has seen a gradual move away from traditional, resource-heavy endpoint protection agents to next-generation solutions in response to the increasing sophistication of malware, cybercriminal tactics and the threat landscape at large. Traditional host intrusion detection systems (HIDS) built on signature-based det

Unapplied Knowledge: Using Endpoint Intelligence to Earn an A-Plus in Security

There’s a famous quote that goes something like this: “Unapplied knowledge never benefited anyone.” I remember learning that back in college when working on a group project for a professor I’d had the previous semester. I earned a strong A in his class the first term, but the project we turned in the second time around didn’t g

How Basic Endpoint Patching Helps Protect Against Ransomware and Other Attacks

On Friday, a group of unknown threat actors carried out one of the largest cyberattacks of its kind, which infected hundreds of thousands of computers in 150 countries. The ransomware, known as WannaCry, exploits a Microsoft Windows OS vulnerability that was patched in Microsoft’s Security Bulletin two months ago. The universal advice was straightforwa

Vulnerability Management in the Age of Analytics

It is becoming increasingly critical to manage both unknown and known vulnerabilities. In fact, since even novice cybercriminals can exploit publicly disclosed issues, it may be even more important to manage known vulnerabilities. Furthermore, fraudsters can examine information associated with known threats to develop new attacks and scout potential targets

Compliance Does Not Always Cure Health Care Security Woes

For organizations in highly regulated sectors such as health care, compliance with regulatory standards is not just a good idea; it’s the law. Moreover, there is a broad consensus that the regulatory standards are soundly based on security principles. Complaints about excessive or misguided regulations are not often heard. But the flip side of this r
