Bromium Black Hat Survey: Endpoint Risk Five Times Greater Than Network or Cloud

Security

 Bromium®, Inc., the pioneer of threat isolation to prevent data breaches, today announced the publication of “Black Hat 2015: State of Security,” a survey of more than 100 information security professionals conducted at the Black Hat Conference 2015. The survey reveals issues with Flash and security patch management, with the majority of respondents citing the endpoint as the source of greatest risk. The report also highlights the risk of cyber attacks on critical infrastructure and an initial positive reception to Windows 10.

“One reason that the endpoint is the source of the greatest security risk is because of how difficult it is to balance security and productivity. For example, 90 percent of organisations would be more secure if they disabled Flash, but 41 percent would become less productive,” said Clinton Karr, senior security strategist, Bromium. “Traditional security solutions have proven ineffective at mitigating this dilemma, putting our critical infrastructure at significant risk.”
