In today’s hybrid workspace, when endpoint security plays a critical role in ensuring organizations’ cyber resiliency, enterprises can significantly benefit from implementing endpoint security as part of a holistic security solution.

Selecting a vendor and its MES product is not only for combating the threats of today as they will be different tomorrow. Rather, the selection should be made from a long-term perspective on whether the vendor can adapt to the threats of the future while also reducing the cost and complexity of security operations.”
