How to prevent a cyberattack before it happens

I’d wager that IT departments in nearly every organization out there are looking for ways to get ahead of the latest cybersecurity threats to prevent a breach before it happens. Data is now one of the hottest commodities. Every day we generate more and more of it. It drives business and defines our personal lives — and cybercriminals are working overtime to find new ways to get their hands on it.

And they can be sneaky! Statistics show that the average data breach goes undiscovered for 196 days, costing the victimized organization upwards of $7.6 million — and that doesn’t include the cost of reputational or brand damage.

The unfortunate reality is that the devices your users rely on every day to perform their jobs are the most common entry points for cyberattackers, which is why they need strong and layered security. However, protecting endpoint devices manually is an increasingly complex, expensive and time-consuming task. Unfinished processes or inconsistent protections can leave your organization vulnerable to an attack.

Replacing your manual processes, nonintegrated point solutions or overly complex software suite with a unified endpoint management (UEM) solution will enable you to keep tabs on your entire endpoint universe from a single console and will give you the tools you need to keep every corner of that universe protected. Plus, your IT team will have more time to innovate.

With the KACE Systems Management Appliance (SMA), which is part of the Quest UEM solution, you can easily provision, manage, secure and service all your network-connected devices. KACE brings all your Windows PCs, Macs, Chromebooks, smartphones, tablets, internet-of-things (IoT) technologies and other endpoints under one secure management roof. You can automate and enforce policy-based management, meet software license compliance mandates, keep systems updated and patched, reimage endpoints and lock down USB ports to prevent data loss — all of which goes a long way in preventing a cyberattack.

Try KACE SMA for yourself and see how you can streamline tasks such as agent provisioning, inventory record-keeping, systems patching, software deployment, and asset and software license management.
