Enterprise teams are advised in this report to integrate their traditional and next-generation endpoint security protections with emerging mobile security safeguards.
This integration is consistent with the planned direction of the best commercial platform providers, but it requires effort from the enterprise team to bridge communication and funding differences between endpoint and mobility management on adjacent IT and security teams.
Adversary groups are constantly evolving, putting pressure on security teams to anticipate adversary advancements in smarter and more human ways.
The primary challenge is that many enterprise teams maintain functional and even organizational separation in the management of endpoint computers and mobile devices.
For example, the selection, procurement, and operation of each type of system is often controlled by different supervisory groups with different legacy backgrounds – and sometimes incompatible interests in prioritizing cybersecurity as a prominent focus.
This whitepaper proposes that enterprise teams should immediately begin the planning process to integrate their endpoint and mobile protection and management systems.
The operational, security, and financial advantages of a common platform are outlined and illustrated through practical examples. The goal here is to help enterprise teams reduce gaps in their security architecture and improve the endpoint and mobile experience for their users.
The Cybereason Security Team champions cyber defenders by providing future-ready attack protection that unifies security from the endpoint, to the enterprise, to everywhere the battle moves. The Cybereason Defense Platform combines the industry’s top-rated detection and response (EDR and XDR), next-gen anti-virus (NGAV), and proactive threat hunting to deliver context-rich analysis of every element of a Malop (malicious operation). The result: defenders can end cyber attacks from endpoints to everywhere.
