Many organizations have been supporting the remote or hybrid model for years. But as things continue to shift, how confident are you that you're efficiently managing all of your remote endpoints?
Here are five key considerations for securing remote endpoints with the latest software, patches, and configurations.
1. Can you secure your workers’ endpoints without a VPN?
MAKE SURE YOUR VPN ISN’T A CRITICAL POINT FOR SECURING YOUR ENDPOINTS.
Legacy patching platforms can only update systems and software on remote endpoints that are connected to the corporate network via virtual private network (VPN). Users often avoid connecting via VPN to circumvent the tedious, frustrating, and time-consuming process of making updates over slow connections. Automox seamlessly updates and patches any corporate endpoint that’s connected to the internet, which means users are always current with patches and configurations.
2. Will you be able to outmaneuver attackers when new vulnerabilities are announced?
ATTACKERS ARE WEAPONIZING VULNERABILITIES FASTER AND MORE FREQUENTLY THAN EVER.
In fact, the moment new critical vulnerabilities are reported sets off a race to see if you can patch vulnerabilities faster than adversaries can exploit them. To be safe, you need to remediate critical vulnerabilities within 72 hours of their announcement. Traditional, VPN-based patching solutions will likely not allow you to remediate in time. Automox customers, on the other hand, meet this speed threshold thanks to automated, cloud-native remediation.
3. Can you automate your endpoint and patch management on devices not connected to your network?
PATCHING CAN BE A THANKLESS, TIME-CONSUMING TASK THAT’S EASY TO FALL BEHIND ON.
What’s worse, IT administrators often can’t see which software titles on which systems are out of date and susceptible to attack. Unpatched and misconfigured laptops are a huge concern for maintaining cyber hygiene. And an increase in remote laptops not connected to the corporate network for extended periods will only compound this problem. Automox gives you visibility into the status of remote endpoints so you can customize and automate both operating system (OS) and third-party application updates or patches.
4. Are you able to patch and update across operating systems and third-party software?
58% OF DATA BREACHES ARE ATTRIBUTED TO POOR PATCH MANAGEMENT.
Yet managing and maintaining the latest software versions and configurations across multiple operating systems and myriad remote laptops is a huge hurdle for legacy patch platforms. Automox keeps IT teams ahead of attackers across Windows®, macOS®, and Linux® platforms, along with a growing library of third-party patching support — to secure remote laptops through a single cloud-native console.
5. Do you have visibility and control of all your remote endpoints?
IT’S DIFFICULT TO AUTOMATE POLICIES FOR REMOTE ENDPOINTS YOU CAN’T SEE.
As a cloud-native solution, Automox provides a complete inventory of all hardware, software, patches, and configuration details for your remote endpoints. You’ll have a unified view of your remote laptops to identify misconfigured systems, discover missing patches, remediate patch vulnerabilities, deploy required software, and fix misconfigured systems across Windows, macOS, and Linux — without the need for multiple tools.
Today’s IT leaders deserve better than tedious legacy tools to manage their infrastructure. From our single cloud-native platform, automate and scale your IT operations to meet the growing business demands of the modern workforce. With complete visibility of your entire environment, you can easily monitor, identify, and respond to issues in real-time across any endpoint, regardless of OS or location.
