Why Only one Layer of Endpoint Security is not Enough
Every device connected to the internet poses a potential security risk. Whether it’s a smartphone, laptop, printer, or even a POS terminal, IoT devices are possible entry points for unauthorized users. As cyber criminals work harder and increase the volume of their attacks, endpoint security has never been more important. Although many companies boast their endpoint security technologies, none offer a fully effective approach to endpoint security. A multi-layered approach is the only way to completely secure an organization.
Hackers Attack in More Than One Way
As AI and machine learning technology has progressed for both cybersecurity and hacking tools, hackers and cyber criminals are now able to attack enterprises and change their tactics mid-attack. These advancements in malicious technology mean hackers can operate more effectively and, oftentimes, without detection. Without a complete cybersecurity solution, risk of successful malware, virus and social engineering attacks increases drastically. A layered security approach protects against multiple attack vectors and helps business systems defend against a variety of different attacks, working to protect sensitive data and information from getting in the wrong hands.
A Breach Costs Significantly More than Implementing Multi-Layered Security
On average, businesses lose around 15 working hours per month due to downtime caused by security attacks. This downtime, in monetary value, translates to roughly $20,000 in lost opportunity costs. Additionally, the average cost of a successful cyber attack now exceeds one million dollars in lost opportunity and remediation costs. Although every enterprise would like to think they are not the likely cyber attack target, about 93% of businesses have been subject to attack, whether they know it or not. As criminals improve tactics and advance technologies, the cost of cyber attacks will only continue to increase. To protect against costly attacks, organizations need to have cutting-edge, multi-layered ransomware prevention, endpoint security, and EDR technologies. By implementing RevBits complete suite of cybersecurity solutions, enterprises won’t need to give the possibility of a cyber attack a second thought.

Most homeowners have had to deal with a pest problem at some point. In addition to the mess their intrusion may create, they can also cause a great deal of damage. Trying to determine their access point can be a tricky endeavor. You can attempt any number of lures and traps; sometimes with success. But the truly insidious and elusive pest will require the services of an expert.
When it comes to cybersecurity, different tactics emerge on a daily basis, which can make it difficult to keep up with current trends. Sandboxing and honeypot security are two cybersecurity tactics that are constantly evolving but can be confused. These two technologies are quite different and both offer valuable solutions to various cybersecurity issues. By understanding the differences in these two technologies, businesses can be sure they have the right solution for their cybersecurity needs.
Cyber attacks have been on the rise for the past five years and traditional, passive defenses are no longer enough to protect businesses and enterprises. Many companies are pairing defensive and offensive cybersecurity approaches and are implementing measures like honeypots and deception technologies to protect against future attacks.
