IT Security professionals, network engineers and admins are looking for ways to tighten and strengthen every layer of the network to defend against threats. The end point has become ground zero for a variety of attacks, so as such the end point management, monitoring and control sector has experienced tremendous growth. These are some good questions to consider when evaluating products and developing a strategy.
Endpoint management has always been an important component of an effective IT security strategy, but it is becoming more and more immediately relevant given the recent leveraging of IoT devices in DDOS attacks and snooping.
Full disclosure – This article is written by a Tripwire employee and is designed to highlight Tripwire Enterprise. That said, the first 2/3’s of the article discuss the very relevant trend of moving back away from the wire, from network monitoring alone, and again toward endpoint security. Tripwire is one option. There are others. The discussion is quite relevant.
