Chapter 1: Endpoint Security is Increasingly Complex

Chapter 1: Endpoint Security is Increasingly Complex

Quest
Published by: Research Desk Released: Sep 14, 2020

Endpoint security is a major undertaking for today’s organizations. It is one of the primary reasons for companies to deploy unified endpoint management (UEM). Devices connecting to the network have proliferated in recent years, thanks to mobile platforms and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies, but that will soon pale in comparison to what’s to come. Thanks to Internet of Things (IoT) implementations, the number of connected devices will grow exponentially in the near future.

Two sets of computer users will closely be watching this explosive growth – IT departments and hackers. For cybercriminals, more devices means more opportunities to break into networks, cause disruptions and steal valuable data. Cybercriminals have different goals for siphoning data from organizations. Profit is the main motivator; hackers know they can sell personal health records, credit card and bank account credentials in the lucrative black market. Other motives include cyber espionage, grudges and hacktivism.
