In this webinar, Randy Franklin Smith (Ultimate Windows Security) shows how application control is an important defense-in-depth measure that can provide detection and prevention of late-stage APT attacks.
For security and IT pros concerned with protecting sensitive information across multiple endpoints and applications. Explore how cloud can enable us to go back to basics of security to address the challenges of distributed computing and make our organizations more secure.
Endpoint security is at a critical juncture. Increasingly, employees
at organizations of all sizes are using a wider variety than ever of
desktop and mobile devices, including smartphones, tablets and
laptops, as they work from broadly dispersed locations, including
home offices. Often, organizations are permitting and even
encouraging employees to use their own devices under BYOD
(bring your own device) policies. With these devices, employees
are accessing not only corporate data and applications, but also
social media, banking and shopping sites. Download this white paper to learn more about endpoint security.
In today’s ‘always on, always connected’ world where sensitive data is almost certain to be stored electronically, organizations can no longer afford to operate without some form of Endpoint Protection. The costs related to network downtime or stolen data resulting from malicious attacks significantly outweighs that of maintaining an up to date solution.
Although the unified nature of Endpoint Protection has made extensive security functionality easier to manage, selecting the right products can be a difficult task. This whitepaper aims to explain how the core functionality of Enterprise Protection suites have developed, what to look for in a solution, and which technologies will need to be considered in the future. In today’s business environment, it is no longer a question of whether to invest in Endpoint Protection, but a question of which solution is right for your organization.
New business models and employee work styles are adding pressure on existing endpoint security strategies. A recent survey shows most companies are dissatisfied with current approaches to endpoint security. As a result, most companies are eyeing vendor changes in the coming year.

Guidance for taking any organization to the highest level of endpoint protection regardless of internal resources
Organizations today have a wealth of security tools available to them but many struggle to take full advantage of the technology they have. Too often, this results in a damaging breach that could have been avoided if their solutions had been configured and updated properly or if detections had been noticed and acted on. How well your organization is doing at fully implementing its security solutions, particularly endpoint protection technology, is a reflection of your cybersecurity maturity.
This white paper, “CrowdStrike Falcon Complete: How to Achieve Instant Cybersecurity Maturity for Organizations of all Sizes,” explores the challenges organizations face in getting the most out of a security solution. It also offers insights on how CrowdStrike Falcon Complete can raise you to the highest level of endpoint protection with speed and efficiency, regardless of your size an
