The requirement to secure endpoints has been increasing for the last few years. When the pandemic hit, those endpoints spiraled beyond many security professionals’ wildest dreams. But as our partner SentinelOne said:
“Security fell to the backburner because a.) organizations assumed this would be short-lived, and b.) they figured they could circle back to security once everything was up and running.”
So while security fell to the backburner, malicious actors seized the opportunity. Sentinel Labs, tracked adversarial behavior as it pertains to COVID-19/Coronavirus and observed a significant number of malware campaigns, spam campaigns, and outright scams that preyed on the fears and uncertainties of the global population.
“These ranged from fraud schemes related to economic stimulus programs offered by the U.S. Small Business Administration to the Maze ransomware hacking group attacking a British research company that was preparing to conduct trials of a COVID-19 vaccine.”
With these increased threats and endpoints, IT and security professionals are once again challenged with how to get the resources to stay cybersecure.
Endpoints can be anything from desktops, laptops, servers, and virtual environments, to IoT devices like wearable fitness devices, printers, smart TVs and even toaster ovens. Today’s challenge is that everything is digital, and protecting the endpoint isn’t as easy as it used to be. With employees working from home, any of these devices could be a problem for your network security.
Sentinel One advises a few steps to securing endpoints: understand what’s on your network, secure company devices, zero-trust security to connect remote employees and beware of phishing and malware campaigns. But for the stressed out, busy IT and security professional attempting to do everything from email and printer support to network security, more help is needed.
