With the growing emphasis on enterprise-level digital transformation revolution, your enterprise’s potential digital transformation is likely to experience serious issues if you fail to get a handle on your enterprise’s endpoint security. You need to know where your endpoints are truly unsecured besides having the right strategies to fix deficiencies.
Discussed below are a few key suggestions that will help align your digital transformation with your endpoint security:
Regulate your enterprise’s BYOD culture: The bring-your-own-devices (BYOD) culture in enterprises allows employees to use their own mobile devices and laptops. In your digital transformation, make sure that you know exactly which devices are connecting to your network. As part of their onboarding process, ask employees to register their devices with your security team. If a new device has to be registered, make sure that all employees know the process to register their devices, and also prevent them from accessing the network with an unregistered device.
Close unregulated access: Your perimeter will have to be secured against orphaned accounts and improper accounts as well as cryptojacking malware and ransomware.
Resolve your culture problems: Demonstrate your new endpoint protection policies to your employees via regular high-quality training initiatives. Make them understand the changes in your endpoint security due to your digital transformation, including the safety protocols they will need to follow.
Do not ignore patches and updates: All your endpoints (mobile devices, laptops, etc.) need continual security updates for both their software and firm. These updates play a vital role in your digital transformation and endpoint security. Besides protecting users from new malicious threats on the web or cloud, these updates also improve devices’ threat intelligence, permitting them to stay alert to current cyber attacks.
