In the last few years, many organizations have had to face numerous security issues due to the exponential proliferation of IP-enabled devices. Endpoint devices often leave the network perimeter and come back compromised or uncompliant, especially because employees need to access network data anytime and anywhere. With sophisticated cyber-attacks and the use of IoT, BYOD, and mobility on the rise, network exposure to data breaches has become very common. Organizations need solutions that provide visibility and manageability, while also reducing data exposure and helping them meet regulatory compliance requirements. Organizations lacking visibility and control over endpoint access authorization and continuous compliance incur significantly higher risk profiles. In order to reduce this risk, companies are challenged with finding solutions that are both technically sound, and do not incur implementation penalties that negatively impact operations.
Knowing what endpoints are operating within your network is one thing, but knowing what your endpoints are operating on is another. IT administrators need an easy, automated way to detect new devices entering their network, and a way to stay on top of the new updates needed for the devices already in their network. Read our latest Metadefender Endpoint Management release to learn how we have made it easier for admins to tackle both.
We would like to inform our customers that there is a possibility that some Windows OS computers connected to your Metadefender Endpoint Management cloud account (formerly called Gears) might have a defective Metadefender Endpoint agent that needs to be updated. Symptoms of a defective Metadefender Endpoint agent might include abnormally high CPU usage or disk I/O on the computer, which will result is users experiencing slow response when using the computer (Note that on more powerful computers the performance might be unnoticeable to the end-user). OPSWAT strongly recommends that you review the endpoints on your cloud environment and update any problematic agents as soon as possible.
As a company with more than 42,000 associates, EGS (Expert Global Solutions) was presented with a challenge that is encountered by many large companies - how to secure endpoint devices used by remote employees. EGS makes use of Workspace virtualization from RES Software (a form of virtual desktop infrastructure) for remote workers. They needed a way to prevent risky or compromised computers from accessing the virtual workspace. Employee-owned devices, especially when used remotely, are very difficult to monitor and secure. Employers do not want to directly manage these devices, but they are still liable for any breaches they may cause.
