Ponemon Institute is pleased to announce the release of Flipping the Economics of Attacks, sponsored by Palo Alto Networks.

As revealed in this research, while some attackers may be motivated by non-pecuniary reasons, such as those that are geopolitical or reputational, an average of 69 percent of respondents say they are in it for the money.

2013 State of the Endpoint

2013 State of the Endpoint

We are pleased to present the results of the 2013 State of the Endpoint study sponsored by Lumension® and conducted by Ponemon Institute. Since 2010, we have tracked endpoint risk in organizations, the resources to address the risk and the technologies deployed to manage threats.

 

We are pleased to present the results of the 2013 State of the Endpoint study sponsored by Lumension® and conducted by Ponemon Institute. Since 2010, we have tracked endpoint risk in organizations, the resources to address the risk and the technologies deployed to manage threats.

This study reveals that the state of endpoint risk is not improving. One of the top concerns is the proliferation of personally owned mobile devices in the workplace such as smart phones and iPads. In fact, 80 percent of those surveyed say laptops and other mobile data-bearing devices pose a significant security risk to their organization’s networks or enterprise systems because they are not secure. Yet, only 13 percent say they use stricter security standards for employees’ personal devices rather than for corporate-owned devices. (click to download study)
