How to Keep Endpoints Safe and Employees Productive with Application Isolation
In the typical enterprise, employees use hundreds of apps that significantly expand the endpoint attack surface-whether IT is aware, or not. Clearly, apps are a fact of life and employees will use them as they see fit. The best defense is application whitelisting, but attackers show us otherwise: In fact, all 10 of the Top 10 attacker groups use whitelisted software to infect endpoints. And with long patching cycles and insufficient training, IT security teams need something more. However, a win-win approach exists so that users can benefit from any productivity app they want without compromising the security of the entire infrastructure.
