Unique Agentless Control for Endpoint Visibility

CURRENT THREAT SCENARIO

Today, companies increasingly rely on a myriad of agent-based applications to control the laptops, work stations and servers in their enterprise. These solutions include Anti-virus, Encryption, PC Lifecycle Management, Patch Management and DLP to name a few, and play mission critical roles in every organization to maintain an effective security and compliance posture. Any failure with these solutions represents a significant degree of risk and inefficiency for companies. The threat is wide spread and massive with typical organizations experiencing 20-30% or more failure rates for a compliance inspection of these mission critical tools. The problem is two-fold: First, Agent-based technologies all share inherent limitations. If the agent is out-of-date, not installed, or the required services and processes are not running, the agent cannot do its job. Although these solutions have management consoles, self-health monitoring does not work when unmanaged and broken machines are invisible to the console. The second part of the problem is that companies lack accurate visibility to see every endpoint in their organization, thereby knowing what is or is not happening on those endpoints at all times. End-users themselves further complicate endpoint control knowingly or unknowingly exposing companies to risk through utilization of dangerous unapproved applications such as P2P, Remote Control, and hacking tools, inadvertently sharing file directories and using unapproved mass storage devices. The net result is that this general loss of control of corporate endpoints jeopardizes mission critical security, compliance and management policies and commitments within far too many enterprises.
