Do you have a major security compliance audit coming up? Now is the time to prepare, and run an assessment of vulnerabilities on your endpoints and the effectiveness of internal controls. Consider partnering with a vendor to improve your monitoring capabilities to detect noncompliance across endpoints, which are often found in disparate networks, systems, and hardware. You can inspect 100 endpoints for free with Promisec’s widely available inspection tool.

So, are your endpoints ready to go back to work after summer break?

As an IT professional, you know that endpoints are where attackers seek to exploit vulnerabilities, commit cyber fraud and conduct other malicious activity. But often, the more lackadaisical summer months can lead to security complacency with staff shortages, long weekends and roaming employees. Just because your company wasn’t the victim of a major breach this past summer doesn’t mean that your endpoints as potential points-of-entry are secure. Now is an ideal time for security professionals to double down on visibility efforts to identify issues that may have arisen during the dog days of summer.

Here are some tips and tricks, identified by Dan Ross, CEO at Promisec, for ensuring your organization is ready to start the fall with an effective strategy for monitoring threats and getting ahead of endpoint vulnerabilities – before you’re the victim of an attack.
