Endpoint security myths and why they persist
by Mirko Zorz - Editor in Chief - Monday, 14 July 2014.
Ease of use to administer the Endpoint Protection Solution is a primary factor. Having to spend most of your time learning how to deploy and to work with the software, when you are responsible for the solution to actually implement and deploy it is a big negative. The best is to have a fast way to deploy the solution through either virtual- or hardware-appliances or as a cloud based platform for the management components. This way admins can focus on the important parts like composing policies that are enforcing security, but leave users work productively.

If we think about users, there are several requirements that need to be fulfilled. Intrusion should be reduced to minimum so they can do their job. Notifications should be informative and educational and why not, funny. Resource consumption must be also diminished to minimum to avoid workstations’ slowdown and keep a good user experience intact.
