Endpoint Threat Management: The Benefits of Cloud-Based Security Services
On the endpoint side, problems are growing worse, but there are some approaches that offer potential solutions. Recession-driven budget cuts force corporations and consumers to extend the useful life and delay replacement of old PCs. IDC hears complaints from corporate users and consumers that, "Security is eating my machine. It takes forever to boot. AV scans make work impossible. Background security tasks always slow down application and web access." The good news is that a hybrid approach can reduce endpoint resource consumption because less threat detection and web filtering occurs on the endpoint.
Read this short paper to learn how your organization can use a hybrid approach to acquire an endpoint security solution that consumes less CPU time, memory, disk, and network bandwidth.
