Closing the Antivirus Protection Gap: A Comparative Study on Effective Endpoint Protection StrategiesSponsored by: Lumension
Corporate economic concerns have put increased pressure on already limited IT resources in recent years as the onslaught of malware and sophistication of cyber attacks continues to grow at exponential rates. As a result, 50% of endpoint operating costs are directly attributable to malware, yet, corporate IT budgets are still focused on maintaining standalone antivirus as the keystone in endpoint security.
In this paper, we will benchmark the effectiveness of a standalone AV and O/S resident patching solution versus newer technologies and a defense-in-depth approach of layering multiple endpoint security and operational technologies together.
