Is your endpoint security up to the challenge?

New malware is emerging every day. Ransomware attacks are on the rise.  At the same time, the numbers and types of devices accessing your data are growing fast.

How smart are your endpoints? Are they automated to detect threats accurately? Can your cybersecurity systems respond to risks immediately, and remediate problems effectively?

For too many organizations, the answers to these questions is NO. And even if an endpoint security strategy is in place, it may be less proactive than it is reactive.

It may be time for a Security Assessment. An assessment carried out by DigitalEra’s professionals in collaboration with McAfee will help you gain new knowledge and insights to ensure your endpoint security is intelligent, collaborative and, most important, truly effective.

  • Identify and assess vulnerabilities in endpoints and data infrastructure.
  • Identify and document gaps between security risks and policies.
  • Assess the security controls integrated into your security program.

As threats get smarter, every organization needs to become more intelligent about endpoint security.
