The State of Endpoint Protection: How Solid Is Your First Layer of Defense Against Cyberthreats?
A Webroot commissioned Forrester Consulting survey found that while almost everyone has some form of endpoint protection (the protection mechanisms do not always live on the endpoint— sometimes, it is a network-based capability that protects user endpoints), a majority of organizations have experienced endpoint attacks despite the presence of security defenses. Of these, almost 50% have resulted in financial loss greater than $100,000 in the last 12 months alone. According to survey respondents, the security attacks also resulted in significantly increased IT help desk time, reduced productivity, and in some cases, disrupted business activity.
