In the past, cybersecurity was focused almost exclusively on the network. Organizations deployed perimeter-focused security solutions designed to ensure that threats remained outside of the network and that sensitive data stayed on the inside. In general, this approach worked since these systems were good at detecting most of the threats posed to an organization and an organization’s network infrastructure was inside this defined perimeter.
Today, a cybersecurity strategy focused on the network perimeter is no longer adequate. Business data and processing are increasingly moving off the company network and number of endpoint devices are continuing to increase.
As the number of endpoint devices in an organization’s network grows and they increasingly operate outside of the network perimeter, the focus on network security to the exclusion of endpoint security is no longer workable. While network-based defenses are valuable and more scalable, organizations also need to focus their security eﬀorts on the endpoint.
