Internet Security
Free software packs are the most widely used on the system. They are the one off the biggest threat for the security.

Re: The endpoint is not dead
The government should ensure about internet security. The use of the internet should be free of malware. But unfortunately the rate of using malware are increasing day by day at a raid pace. Some essay writing service reviews did it correctly. I appreciate those companies.

Re: The endpoint is not dead
Thanks, Candace. To your point about endpoint security being comprised of a broad spectrum of technologies, Rick Gordon, Managing Partner at Mach37 an early-stage tech venture development company, backed your take up in a Dark Reading Radio broadcast earlier this month. He said he was seeing some startup activity in endpoint security and "the emergence of next generation leaders."  

Good news for the customer base.. more competition for McAfee & other mainstream players.

Re: The endpoint is not dead
The security industry has been dancing around the idea that anti-virus is dead for many years, so it is not really shocking when someone says it out loud. My take on this topic is that it is not so much that AV is dead as it is taking a less prominent role. Endpoint security is inclusive of a broad spectrum of technologies many of which are critical in applying good security hygiene. Rather than being the primary medium through which organizations secure their endpoints AV is now in a supporting role with companies relying heavily on a multi-tiered approach. It takes a village, from the endpoint to the heart of the network, to protect all businesses from the most advanced threats out there.

Re: The endpoint is not dead
I think as malware evolves so must endpoint. I have seen crowdstrike adapt such as providing a real-time cloud endpoint solution. Other companies have simply incorporated it into a UTM strategy. But to say endpoint security is ineffective is just a blanket statement. Any security control by itself is relatively ineffective, especially when comparing it against specific threat vectors. It takes different safegards working together (IDS/IPS, Firewall, Anti-Virus, WebSecurity, DLP) to make a cohesive effective solution. And even those working in tandem isn't 100%. Awareness and end user education is also a big must for a secure environment.

The endpoint is not dead
Thanks for a very interesting blog, Candace. Curious to know if when you mention "it's fashionable nowadays to claim that endpoint security is ineffective" are you referring to quotes from Symantec's execs that antivirus is dead, or something more general?

The Year in Security: 2019
This Tech Digest provides a wrap up and overview of the year's top cybersecurity news stories. It was a year of new twists on old threats, with fears of another WannaCry-type worm and of a possible botnet army of Wi-Fi routers. But 2019 also underscored the risk of firmware and trusted security tools harboring dangerous holes that cybercriminals and nation-state hackers could readily abuse. Read more.
