Trends in Endpoint Security for 2024: What Organizations Need To Know

Trends in Endpoint Security for 2024: What Organizations Need To Know

As we move further into 2024, the landscape of endpoint security continues to evolve rapidly, driven by a surge in cyberattacks and advancements in technology. The projected rise in cyberattack costs from $8 trillion to $9.5 trillion globally this year alone highlights the urgent need for robust endpoint security solutions. 

That’s why we explore key trends in endpoint security that organizations must address to safeguard their digital environments effectively.

Growth in Endpoints

With the proliferation of devices connected to corporate networks, the number of endpoints has exploded. Each device represents a potential entry point for cyber threats, and in a recent survey, 66% of respondents already stated that working from home should be a legal right, meaning that IT setups are only growing more diverse and complex. Furthermore, 56% of UK employees admit to relying solely on mobile devices while working from holiday destinations in the summer, emphasizing the need for comprehensive mobile security.

Organizations must adopt thorough endpoint security solutions that can manage and secure a diverse range of devices. Faronics’ suite of endpoint security tools offers centralized management and real-time monitoring, ensuring every device, whether it’s a desktop, laptop or mobile device, is protected against emerging threats.


Shift from Signature-Based to Behavior-Based Security

The shift from signature-based to behavior-based security is pivotal in countering sophisticated cyber threats. Signature-based methods, while effective against known threats, fall short against novel attacks. Behavior-based, cloud-native platforms leverage machine learning and AI to detect anomalies and potential threats based on behavior patterns. 

Why Is Behavior-Based Security So Advantageous in Today’s Landscape?

Traditional signature-based security relies on a database of known threat signatures to identify malicious activity. This approach is inherently reactive, as it requires the threat to be previously identified and cataloged. In contrast, behavior-based security proactively monitors and analyzes the behavior of applications and users. It identifies potentially malicious activities by comparing them to normal behavior patterns. This facilitates the detection of zero-day attacks and other sophisticated threats that still need to be documented.

That’s why Faronics’ endpoint security solutions utilize algorithm-assisted analytics to restrict unknown or unauthorized applications in your organizations. This allows IT to identify and mitigate threats in real time, ensuring proactive defense against evolving cyber threats.

Mobile Security

The increase in mobile device usage for business operations necessitates enhanced mobile security measures. Mobile devices often lack the robust security controls found in traditional endpoints, making them attractive targets for cybercriminals. Faronics’ Mobile Application Management provides comprehensive protection for mobile endpoints, including over-the-air app management for entire employee groups, remote wiping and real-time threat detection, safeguarding sensitive corporate data from breaches.


Zero Trust Architecture and Threat Intelligence Sharing

Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA) is becoming a cornerstone of modern cybersecurity strategies. Unlike traditional security models, ZTA operates on the principle of “never trust, always verify,” requiring continuous verification of every user and device attempting to access network resources. Although nearly 90% of organizations have begun adopting zero trust security, only 2% have fully matured implementations. Faronics helps organizations advance their zero trust initiatives with solutions that enforce strict access controls, continuous authentication and comprehensive monitoring, aligning with the zero trust principles. 

Even the best architecture can’t guarantee 100% safety, though, which is why effective threat intelligence sharing is crucial for staying ahead of cyber threats. By sharing threat data across organizations and industries, security teams can gain insights into emerging threats and outstanding operating system updates and asset utilization, allowing IT teams to develop proactive defense strategies.
