The definitive study on endpoint security effectiveness

Global IT security spend is at an all-time high — with a quarter of it allocated to endpoint security tools. Yet, over 70 percent of breaches still originate on the endpoint. Why?

Get answers now in this comprehensive study, analyzing more than six million enterprise devices over a one-year period. Find out what causes security tools and agents fail — reliably and predictably — and the steps you can take to mitigate this risk.

The critical endpoint security solutions we rely on are flawed. They are extremely fragile, degrade quickly, and create unnecessary friction for users. Investing more money on more security tools does not protect enterprises from threats; in fact, it may even be causing the most risk.
