Panel: Users Still Worst Enemy to Endpoint Security
Tools don't always cut it, particularly if companies don't have dedicated teams to deal with the storm of alerts they send out.BOSTON-The worst enemy of security on endpoints-including desktop and notebook computers and mobile devices both on and off the network-is the user. That was the conclusion of a March 26 panel on the subject that was moderated by Dave Martin, Director of Information Security at EMC's Global Security Organization, here at the Boston SecureWorld Expo.
The challenge today, according to Martin, is the thirst for ubiquitous access. "The end user wants access from everything to everything," he said, not just in the office, but when they're mobile and outside the network perimeter.
