According to the SANS 2016 State of Endpoint Security Survey, the endpoint is rapidly evolving and often the first vector of attack into enterprises. It’s no surprise, then, that endpoint security and control are becoming major focal points of SANS security.
Few companies understand this better than Forescout, and few people understand this better than Ray Davidson, PhD, former dean of academic affairs for the SANS Technology Institute. In his recent SANS report, Secure the Network from the Endpoint, Davidson discusses four Critical Security Controls (CSCs) that directly concern endpoints that must be protected by the network:
- Inventory of authorized and unauthorized devices
- Inventory of authorized and unauthorized software
- Secure configurations for hardware and software on mobile devices, laptops, workstations and servers
- Continuous vulnerability assessment and remediation
In addition, Davidson covers eight other CSCs related to endpoints—which are also effectively addressed using Forescout solutions.
