Why All Enterprise Security Eyes Are on the Endpoint

Anti-virus may not be dead, but considering the sophistication of today's attackers, it has never been so imperative to expand beyond traditional defenses to combat current threats. That's the message that Matt Presser, Trustwave SpiderLabs senior security consultant, likes to scream from the rooftops.

As Matt explains in the above video, he strongly believes in the muscle provided by endpoint detection and says the technology should be foundational to an organization's security program, not only for its detection prowess but also because it can tell a more detailed story of what is happening on your network. It is so valuable, in fact, that it may even prompt a call from an impressed cybercriminal, as Matt experienced during one engagement with a customer.
