Nisha Harshwal:-What are today’s most prominent endpoint security myths? Why dothey still persist?
Mr. Filip Cotfas:- The myth of the invulnerable Macs is probably one of the most famous ones. Macs are considered low maintenance devices and many organizations are adopting Apple products hoping to easier protect their sensitive data.
Nisha Harshwal:-What are the most significant difficulties with protecting endpoint clients in the enterprise?
Mr. Filip Cotfas:-Data is one of the most important assets of any organizations and security experts have been trying to defend it since digital became crucial to modern enterprises. Protecting sensitive data on multiple fronts is not easy, but is vital for all companies, across all industries across the globe. Data Loss Prevention (DLP) has become an important tool for most organizations and in a poorly maintained enterprise infrastructure, controlling data loss can be extremely challenging. Companies that use a DLP solution and detect data loss will deliver better business results and will gain the clients trust, and will become less attractive targets.
One of the main challenges is finding the right balance between what should be controlled and what should be allowed, in order to mitigate the disruption in the employee’s day to day activities.
Nisha Harshwal:-At times it seems we’re fighting a losing battle with endpoint security. What can organizations do in order to stay ahead of the threats?
Mr. Filip Cotfas:-Data Loss Prevention solutions are designed to stop sensitive data leaving the organization`s environment. Unfortunately, the number of companies involved in data breaches are continuing to grow, because they don`t understand how important it is to protect their sensitive data with solutions like Endpoint Protector.
Endpoint Protector can help enterprises and SMBs set sensitive data policies, scan all data transfers, report and block unauthorized data transfers and get detailed reports and email notifications. With our Data Loss Prevention solution, organizations can get valuable insights about which users are transferring critical data, like PIIs, Credit Card Numbers, Social Security Numbers and other important information. Protecting individual’s private data is crucial according to the new data protection regulations, such as GDPR, PCI DSS and others, and a DLP product can help shed light on how employees are trying to copy or move sensitive data.
Nisha Harshwal:-What are the essential attributes of a robust endpoint protection solution?
Mr. Filip Cotfas:-Data Loss Prevention is a complex technologyand often is seen as the heart of most global data protection regulatory standards. At CoSoSys we have always taken a human-centric approach of Data Loss Prevention. We are continuously improving our products based on real feedback from our Customers and Partners.
A robust DLP solution should have the following strengths: cross-platform DLP solution, easy and fast deployment, granular policies and settings, a modular approach to DLP and an intuitive user-friendly interface.
Nisha Harshwal:-How scary or murky is the new threat surface for endpoints in 2019 and beyond?
Mr. Filip Cotfas:-Data breaches are on the rise, and consumer data exposure is risky and expensive, taking in consideration the data protection laws. We believe it is important to have a data protection strategy and make sure sensitive data is kept inside the company`s environment. The role of DLP solutions has definitely increased in the last years. When people think of threats to endpoints, usually they think about major headlines and oftentimes they suffer more data loss from their own employees than data theft by external attackers.
Nisha Harshwal:- What is your channel road map for India for next 12 months?
Mr. Filip Cotfas:-We have a strong distribution channel in India, through which we help customers locally. India is a very relationship-based country. Therefore, a strong local presence is required in order to build trust and help companies overcome their security challenges. Through our Distributors, we have been working with a mix of VARs, System Integrators, and MSPs, each with their own niche markets. Our channel road map for India is to increase the Channel Network and continue to bring more value to the Partners through our continuous R&D efforts for Endpoint Protector.
