The evolution of endpoint security: Adapting to modern cyber threats with Faronics

Whenever we hear of emerging technologies, we tend to focus on what they can do to better our lives. That’s only natural, but we should be aware that every advancement in technology brings new opportunities for bad actors. For endpoint security measures to truly provide any meaningful protection, they need to constantly adapt.

As software and operating systems advance, they always pick up speed along the way, going into shorter development cycles. However, the last few years have witnessed a surge in velocity and a transformation in the nature of cyber threats, mostly due to the rise of artificial intelligence.

Let’s explore some of the key developments and notable events that have shaped the need for advanced solutions. We’ll also delve into how Faronics as an IT management provider has adapted to these changes.

The shifting landscape of cyber threats

As more users spread their technology use among different devices, threat actors have learned to exploit that with more sophisticated and targeted attacks. Gone are the days when traditional antivirus software was sufficient to protect a row of machines within one building’s network. The rise of advanced persistent threats (APTs), ransomware attacks and zero-day vulnerabilities has necessitated a paradigm shift in cybersecurity strategies.

Major data breaches, such as those affecting large corporations and government entities, have underscored the importance of proactive endpoint security measures. High-profile incidents like the LoanDepot breach and the Bank of America supply chain attack have demonstrated the vulnerabilities resulting from traditional security approaches, prompting organizations to seek more robust solutions to safeguard their endpoints.

Technological developments driving change

Several technological advancements have contributed to the evolution of endpoint security. The proliferation of cloud computing, the Internet of Things (IoT) and the widespread adoption of remote work have expanded the attack surface, making it challenging for organizations to maintain a secure environment. As employees access corporate networks from various locations and devices, the need for adaptive and comprehensive endpoint security solutions has become increasingly important.

Endpoint detection and response solutions have gained prominence as organizations recognize the importance of not only preventing but also detecting and responding to threats in real time. 

Faronics has been at the forefront of adapting to this evolving landscape of endpoint security. Recognizing the need for a proactive and resilient response, Faronics has developed a suite of products that address the contemporary challenges faced by most organizations.

Deep Freeze: Fortifying endpoints against threats

Deep Freeze, one of Faronics’ flagship products, has proven to be a game-changer in endpoint security. In the face of ransomware attacks that can encrypt files and cripple systems, Deep Freeze takes a unique approach. It enables organizations to revert their endpoints to a predefined, pristine state with every restart, effectively eliminating any changes made by malicious attackers.

By providing an impenetrable barrier against unauthorized modifications, Deep Freeze ensures that endpoints remain secure, even in the event of a successful cyber attack. This supports organizations across industries in preventing data loss while minimizing downtime and the cost of incident recovery.

Power save and deploy: Comprehensive endpoint management

In addition to Deep Freeze, Faronics offers Power Save and Deploy, completing every business’ comprehensive security strategy and endpoint management. Power Save helps organizations optimize energy consumption by implementing power policies across all endpoints, contributing to both cost savings and environmental sustainability.

Deploy, on the other hand, provides administrators with real-time visibility into endpoint activity and lets them run updates for both operating systems and applications, limiting opportunities for threat actors to exploit any recent loopholes.

By leveraging the insights from overview dashboards and keeping systems up-to-date, organizations can easily monitor and manage user behavior, even with the most distributed workforce. That way, ensuring compliance and identifying potential threats becomes more manageable, giving businesses in exposed industries peace of mind.

Embrace the future of endpoint security

As we reflect on the technological evolution of endpoint security over the last few years, it’s apparent that a proactive and adaptive approach is essential to addressing modern cyber threats. Faronics, with its commitment to innovation and understanding of the constantly changing threat landscape, has positioned itself as a leader in providing robust endpoint security solutions. 

The switch from manual updates and IT management to sophisticated endpoint management tools like Deep Freeze is the shift your organization needs to remain resilient and prepared — a change today’s landscape demands. By leveraging Faronics’ suite of products, your business can embrace future technological trends without having to worry about endpoint security or data breaches. As cyber threats continue to evolve, so does Faronics. We remain dedicated to empowering your organization to stay ahead in the ongoing battle for cybersecurity.
