Protecting Data on the New Security Battleground: Endpoints

Attivo Networks, a provider of cybersecurity threat detection solutions, has announced new capabilities within its ThreatDefend Detection Platform that aim to anticipate and address methods an attacker will use to break out from an infected endpoint.
Protecting endpoints and preventing the spread of infected systems is a critical concern for organizations of all sizes, according to research revealing that attackers can move off of an initially compromised system in 4.5 hours, on average. Further, new research shows that the average dwell time—the time it takes to detect attackers operating within an enterprise network—increased an average of 10 days in 2019, from 85 to 95 days, highlighting the escalating requirement to secure endpoints and prevent an adversary from establishing a foothold.
