When Australia’s James Cook University needed to consider its perimeter security, it began with a thorough review of its own systems and requirements across multiple campus locations.
Implementing an integrated and automated security solution allows IT teams to discover, assess, and monitor endpoints to ensure security and compliance.
Endpoint security is the responsibility of far more than the endpoint or desktop IT team. In fact, it is required to be understood and leveraged by anyone who is responsible for the organization’s network security. These groups need better visibility, compliance, controls and response across the entire distributed network, including on and off network endpoints. More than simply protecting individual devices, a true endpoint security solution continually assesses and ensures the integrity, confidentiality, and availability of enterprise data, network resources, and information systems.
As global cyberattacks persist, cybersecurity is becoming a main focus in the C-suite. Gone are the days where it’s just a concern for IT teams. These rapid, sophisticated attacks across industries have demonstrated that cybersecurity is the responsibility of the entire organization as they seek to avoid the crippling effects associated with data breaches.
The shift towards deploying and managing a more patient-friendly healthcare environment that includes the myriad of devices being accessed by patients and employees can be very challenging, especially when it comes to endpoint security.
