Great Content on Endpoint Security
Thank you for the post as it does hit the nail on the head with what I have seen in organizations as well. There are a lot of point solutions that different teams use which creates a disconnect when it comes to securing an environment.

I think the biggest disconnect and you briefly touched on it when you mentioned tools that "remediate" is between IT and security. a lot of the tools people invest in can detect the problem, but the "remediation" is just creating a report to hand off to another group to go fix. To me, this creates holes in keeping a compliant environment when you have to wait for someone to fix the issues and get back to you when it is finished.

Actual remediation rare and I believe tools that can help connect the IT and Security sides of the house are the tools that are most valuable and worth taking the time to look into.
