    Session Title: Complete Endpoint Security: Five Critical Steps

    Session Synopsis:

    70% of successful breaches started at the endpoint in 2019. Since then, a global pandemic has caused a large-scale shift to remote work – a perfect storm for privilege abuse. As a result, malware has increased by 30,000% in 2020. This is especially concerning when many companies still rely on antivirus software (AV) or Endpoint Detection and Response solutions (EDR) alone to secure endpoints.

    In this visionary session, we will be highlighting which two overlooked steps can mitigate the 60% of modern threats that are missed by AV, and why the need for organizations to move from a reactive to a preventative approach is more important than ever.

    Focus topics include:

    • An overview of endpoint security and why it is crucial for your organization
    • Traditional challenges and existing problems with endpoint security
    • The five critical steps to achieving complete endpoint security
