New "endpoint as a service" offering centralizes visibility and control of IT security threats
ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - February 01, 2017) - ControlScan, the managed security service provider (MSSP) IT leaders and their organizations rely upon for unified security and compliance, announces the addition of advanced endpoint security to its security-as-a-service (SECaaS) offerings.
Recent industry research has shown a downward trend in traditional antivirus solutions' ability to successfully block malware. IT leaders, also noticing this trend, have begun to pursue detection and response technologies that provide greater visibility into the processes and activity patterns that indicate a potential compromise.
"Relying solely on standard, signature-based antivirus protection is no longer feasible for stopping malware," said Alex Knight, Director of Security Product Strategy, ControlScan. "With millions of new malware samples being introduced every year, and exploit kits widely available, it's important to focus not only on prevention, but also detection and response should these threats make it into your network."
The new ControlScan Advanced Endpoint Security Service leverages the company's security operations team and a technology partnership with Sophos to protect businesses' endpoints against today's advanced security threats, including ransomware. This powerful, comprehensive solution gives organizations the freedom to focus on their business while the security of their protected endpoints -- including desktops, laptops, servers and mobile devices -- is being continually monitored and updated to defend against the latest threats.
ControlScan managed security services customers can add the Advanced Endpoint Security solution to fully centralize endpoint management and maintenance for their IT environment. The result is an all-encompassing framework of prevention, detection and response, as well as a simplified process for verifying HIPAA and PCI compliance requirements associated with endpoint security.
"A disconnected security infrastructure creates many challenges, especially when it comes to managing endpoint security," said Timothy Yoder, Director of Technology, Hacienda Mexican Restaurants. "A centralized process for security infrastructure management is one of the best things you can do for your security posture."
