Enterprise Risk Management teams faced a stiff challenge to ensure business continuity following the disruptions caused by the pandemic. Moreover, Information Security vulnerability increased as businesses altered their IT operations and administrative tasks to adjust to the new normal.
Among many challenges, remote access posed all sorts of risks associated with data security and privacy. And poor management and monitoring of endpoints increased the threats of data misuse and abuse.
Against the backdrop for increasing number of endpoints and remote access use-case instances along with growing BYOD/BYOPC culture, endpoint security demands utmost planning and preparedness.
Therefore, Endpoint Security and Management has become a pivotal point in the overall enterprise access control framework.
Endpoint Access just like Privileged Access or Identity Governance and Management demands careful organization around people, roles and responsibilities.
The endpoint security vulnerability could be mitigated significantly when organizations define end-user access policies, adopt a unified endpoint governance framework, implements endpoint privileges on-demand among other best practices such as User Behavior Analytics.
IT Risk Management teams would find merit in implementing the best practices in Endpoint Security and Management as it significantly reduces endpoint attack surface.
In this whitepaper, ARCON discusses 10 time-tested best practices to mitigate threats arising from unmonitored and unmanaged endpoints.
