IT managers can also consider migration to the cloud as a way of protecting endpoints and also driving down costs .

these files on drives like that aren ’ t used by most people , so by the time they notice , it ’ s far too late . The perpetrator who ’ s let the bug into their system by not applying a patch or updating their antivirus software almost certainly won ’ t find out what ’ s happened until someone else does .
That ’ s why continual and consistent training of staff is crucial in the cybersecurity fight . Making sure they ’ re aware of vulnerabilities , hackers and their fiendish methods of getting into systems is half the battle won .
Migration solutions
IT managers can also consider migration to the cloud as a way of protecting endpoints and also driving down costs . If the endpoint is simply a pane of glass that displays information that ’ s held securely elsewhere by way of logging into a web portal , hardware does not need to be top-of-the-range . Cloud computing guards against the devastating results of a computer or server containing sensitive data saved locally being stolen or compromised in another way . Combining a virtual desktop with Two-Factor Authentication makes your systems and what ’ s kept in them considerably more secure .
Managing endpoint protection in this way also brings the fringe benefit of enabling flexible working , which is now hugely in demand in the post-pandemic job market . There ’ s also the ease of adding additional server capacity as your enterprise grows too . u www . intelligentciso . com
