At the coffee shop. In the backseat of a taxi. Airport security. All places that any of us might likely rush off and forget to grab our laptop or tablet.
Companies of all sizes are facing a new challenge of how to protect their employees and their data that resides on such devices – the endpoints of the company network in the hands of its end users.
This is being caused by the confluence of a number of trends. End users are demanding greater freedom, mobility, and access to more collaborative tools like cloud-based public storage. At the same time, the amount of data that exists on devices and in the cloud continues to grow in number and importance. There are new regulations that affect nearly every industry around keeping customer, employee, and patient records secure. The importance of protecting company IP has never been higher. In addition, external threats are growing and increasingly focusing on the end user.
Over the last several years, many of the major breaches that made news headlines originated from endpoint attacks. There is a simple reason for this: endpoints are where the end user meets security. End users are normal people like you and me who make mistakes, who are curious, and who may not have the security knowledge to keep their data safe. This video reminds you just how easy it could be:
Because of that, IT teams around the world are struggling to keep up with empowering users, protecting data, meeting compliance standards, and addressing new external threats. And here at Dell, we’re working hard to help them.
