2018 SANS Endpoint Protection and Response Survey

Antivirus is Not Enough: How Endpoint Protection and Response Can Work Together To Stop Breaches

In this annual survey of the endpoint protection landscape, the SANS institute gathered insightful information on both the concerns and best practices employed by IT security professionals. According to the survey, endpoints continue to be the primary target of attackers, who leverage commodity and sophisticated threat vectors to gain entry and move laterally throughout an organization. As a result, organizations are prioritizing automating detection and response solutions in order to improve endpoint security by decreasing the time from threat detection to response and remediation.

Read this SANS survey to learn about next-generation endpoint best practices and capabilities, why detection and response timelines must be reduced, and the importance of a comprehensive endpoint security solution to stop all attack types.
