Welcome to the October 2022 issue of your Computing Security Newsletter.

Half (49%) of respondents to a recent Twitter poll - carried out by Osirium Technologies - described their organisation's endpoint management security as 'non-existent'. Some 11%)= admitted it was their lowest priority.

Of those that have implemented or are in the process of implementing an endpoint security strategy, just 16% described themselves as 'all over it', while a quarter (24%) said it was a work in progress. When asked about the main factors driving their organisation's need for endpoint security, protecting business data (35%) and avoiding employee error (25%) came out on top. However, for one fifth of respondents (21%) was simply 'a tick-box exercise'.

As Osirium is quick to point out, endpoint management allows IT teams to identify, monitor and control end-users' access to corporate networks and systems. "This protects data from being exposed to a breach through employee mistakes that allow malware or ransomware to be installed, for example, and the abuse of local admin accounts by cyber-attackers." It also adds a layer of protection, if devices lack the necessary security tools or configurations to defend against attacks.

In light of the findings above, it might be wise for more organisations to rethink their strategies around endpoint management and how to keep themselves protected. Failure to do so could come at a very high price.
