Endpoint security – The importance of building a business case

20 May 2020

Endpoints are now the most popular in-road for cybercriminals.

Today’s savvy hackers prefer attacking threat surfaces that are isolated, vulnerable and integrated into a corporate network. That’s why endpoints are now the most popular in-road for cybercriminals.

The economic backlash of Covid-19 will place more strain than ever on IT budgets. Now is the time to build a business case for endpoint security. Your organisation can’t afford to let its guard down when it comes to maintaining the highest levels of endpoint security.

Endpoint security business case essentials

Here are some of the key criteria to include in your endpoint security business case:

Reducing incidents

Solving complex endpoint security problems – especially security emergencies – and all the associated analytics reports and analyses that need to be run is both costly and time-consuming. You need a persistent, unbreakable connection to every endpoint providing the device visibility your teams need to troubleshoot problems quickly and efficiently.,

Creating an undeletable tether

Autonomous endpoints with an undeletable tether improve compliance, control, and visibility. This is a must-have in the new hybrid remote workplace. For endpoint security to scale across every threat surface, having an undeletable tether to every device is essential for scalable remote work and hybrid remote work programs in the enterprise.

Reducing IT asset loss and increasing visibility

Keeping IT asset loss to a minimum, fully understanding asset utilisation, and monitoring the system-level software installed on every device can save a typical organisation hundreds of thousands of pounds a year.

Accurate asset lifecycle planning

With solid data from every device, accurate asset lifecycle planning becomes possible. Having autonomous endpoints based on a hardware connection delivers the data needed to increase the accuracy of asset lifecycle planning and resource allocation, giving IT and Operations the visibility they need at the device level.

Endpoint security costs

Your business case will, of course, need to include endpoint security licensing costs, along with all your change management, implementation and integration costs.
