Five best strategies for endpoint security

Understand the risks of posed by endpoints and how to defend against them.

This presentation by Information Security, magazine's technical editor, Tom Bowers, was given at Information Security...

Decisions Spring 2005.

Worms routinely bypass perimeter firewalls and gateway AV scanners, sneaking into corporate networks on trusted, but compromised mobile clients. Users infect their LANs by jacking infected laptops into the network or connecting via a VPN through the firewall. What enterprises need is end-to-end security that checks and enforces a policy of trusted or untrusted status before granting access.

Endpoint security products -- and emerging network access control systems -- promise to check connecting clients to ensure they comply with enterprise security requirements and remediate them to a trustworthy state. Information Security, magazine's technical editor, Tom Bowers, explores the state-of-the-art technologies in endpoint security and shows you what the technology can and cannot accomplish. Plus, he walks you though how to successfully implement and maintain the most effective endpoint security strategies and provides you with:

  • An overview of client and clientless endpoint technologies
  • Policies that can -- and should -- be enforced
  • An understanding of how to remediate noncompliant clients
  • A sense of current and emerging technologies
  • Selection criteria for endpoint security products
  • Top deployment priorities in a global enterprise
