The increased awareness around the need to fortify endpoint security is well-founded: Endpoints play a central role as the entry point through which many cybersecurity attacks are launched. The cybersecurity kill chain, which models the lifecycle of an attack, details how bad actors leverage endpoints to exploit human and software vulnerabilities, deliver and install threats, and eventually take further action to achieve their objectives.
With contemporary cloud-first strategies, endpoints are even further exposed by being frequently used outside the corporate network perimeter, accessing cloud and on-premises applications over insecure networks, creating a fluid perimeter. This expansion of the attack surface area highlights that a network-centric orientation of cybersecurity, one that is predisposed to catching threats “on the wire,” is no longer sufficient. An adaptive and layered defense-in-depth approach to endpoint security to protect corporate assets is an essential element of a cybersecurity strategy and architecture.
