Today’s businesses face a unique set of security challenges. You need security that works and is easy to implement and manage, but you’re working with a limited budget and resources. Many organizations know their current antivirus solution has gaps but don’t know where to begin in the search for something new. According to ESG Research, 65 percent of organizations believe that the skill level of their security team could use improvement, and 48 percent use more than 25 security products. This leads to more overworked people and, ultimately, less effective security.
Not every endpoint security solution can meet your needs. Finding the right solution that is easy to deploy, easy to manage and can cost-effectively protect your growing business is critical. To assist you in rapidly assessing your options for replacing your antivirus software, we’ve pulled out and adapted key sections from our SANS buyer’s guide, including the core evaluation checklist, guiding questions to frame your evaluation and seven steps to conduct your test-drive.
