With the recent regulatory clampdowns through GDPR, HIPAA and PCI-DSS, compliance has become a necessity and harder to enforce. Your customers and key business partners entrust you with their data. In the event of compliance mismanagement, this trust would be lost, causing a chain reaction of negative press, lost sales and a loss of partnership with B2B associates. Many businesses focus heavily on the security of centralized IT infrastructure, but the most significant threats in the modern world are the endpoints at the edge of your network. Without proper management, these systems could fall victim to malicious attacks and act as a gateway to the core of your network.
Ensuring that compliance is maintained at the edge of your network will increase security and protect your critical business data. There are many ways to enforce endpoint compliance, but this is where you should start:
To ensure the maintenance of compliance, it is vital to have a clear overview of the devices deployed in the enterprise. Device discovery helps you do this by automatically scanning for hardware connected to your WAN or LAN.
One of the most significant benefits of discovering assets and maintaining a registry is having real-time visibility of the devices on your network.
Trianz is a leading endpoint management consulting firm, with many years of experience in helping our clients secure their complex IT networks.
