3 Reasons why your security strategy is failing

why your security strategy is failing

Why is your security strategy failing?

If your security strategy is failing, it could be for several reasons. Whether the tools you’re currently using are fighting for the bandwidth to work, or you don’t have the right ones in place. There is an easy explanation for why you’re still at risk.

We’ve been talking about the “open door policy” with businesses. Gartner reported that nearly all the entry points that attackers can take advantage of will have been known about by Security & IT Ops for at least one year. That is the equivalent of leaving the front door of your house wide open.

To close this door, we’ll highlight 3 common reasons your security strategy is failing and how you can change it to ensure your success. You can read more about questions CIOs and CISOs ask about Tanium before purchasing.

1. One of the often-overlooked solutions is the ability to patch.

The realization that the products available don’t integrate with what already exists in their environment is a shock to an organization. It’s also frustrating to most people. The good news? Tachyon plays nice with what you already have. Tachyon deeply integrates into CM, ServiceNow, and BigFix. This gives it the ability to pick up the slack when CM can’t cover all of an organization’s bases. If 90% of your environment is patched, how do you manage the leftover 10%? That’s a door wide open to potential vulnerabilities.  Tachyon behaves like a silent white-knight, operating almost heroically without any disruption to the business.

2. There is a lack of support for BYOD devices and remote workers.

Businesses are under an immense amount of pressure to “change with the times” and support all kinds of devices, mobile and otherwise. Connections made to the corporate LAN from all the various new devices present a huge security risk.

Some security on the products suffers from outmoded architectures, designed before the mobile working revolution.

Modern enterprise network environments don’t work well with a P2P design.  Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) is a respected industry analyst and consulting firm. They evaluated Tachyon as well as another solution, Tanium Core. EMA observes, “While the speed of Tanium polling responses is often cited as a key advantage of the solution, not all endpoint network deployments provide ideal conditions to achieve value from this approach.” Tanium supports the P2P design which only supports static endpoints that are connected to a fixed LAN.

Change is inevitable and in order to support that change, a modern business must be equipped with the right tools. Like 1E’s Tachyon.

3. Organizations can’t keep up with checking every endpoint for security.

Organizations add endpoints to their infrastructure all the time. There are only two approaches a business can to manage the ever-increasing number. They can either take the “swivel chair” management approach which means the business has to rely on several tools to see into the various endpoints. Or, the company can just accept that they don’t see everything they need.

Neither of these is acceptable, especially in this age where cybersecurity is of the utmost importance.

Cybersecurity is critical. One breach could destroy your organization’s reputation and cost millions of dollars. We take that threat seriously. 1E gives you unprecedented control and visibility over your full digital estate, delivered at speed and at scale. We’re working towards a world of proactive cybersecurity. Where CIOs and CISOs work together to ensure that no threat can bring down their systems.
