What the latest Survey Says about Endpoint Security

Security | Apr 17, 2017

The next-generation of endpoints have arrived. More than servers, desktops, and laptops – Today's endpoints include printers, industrial controls, HVAC systems, and even edgepoints like automobiles, wearables, even pace makers.

This year, Guidance collaborated with the SANS Institute as a co-sponsor of their latest survey, Next-Gen Endpoint Risks and Protections. The survey results help us better understand how the endpoint threat landscape changed in the last year and what IT security teams have done to improve their ability to identify and protect the endpoints they deem most vulnerable.

  • 53% of survey respondents experienced a compromise in the last 24 months
  • 48% survey respondents detected compromise through endpoint detection and response processes
  • 79% of survey respondents find that threat hunting for compromised endpoints without IOC’s to be impossible or difficult
  • 74% of survey respondents find that determining when the incident is fully remediated is impossible or difficult
  • 51% of survey respondents are unable to detect unauthorized possession of sensitive data
