Executive Summary

According to the IT Trust Curve 2013 global survey by Vanson Bourne, security breaches cost enterprises an average of $860,000 a year. But here’s an even more staggering statistic: downtime alone costs enterprises an average of $495,000 a year as they struggle to identify and block threats or repair any damage done. This fact is critical as organizations attempt to defend an ever widening attack surface. Cloud computing, mobile devices, the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend, and constant connectivity open up more and more avenues to attack. It’s no longer a matter of if a breach happens, but when it does and how much damage it leaves in its wake.

As a result, you need ways to minimize the damage and restore systems as quickly as possible. Traditionally, organizations rely on software-only solutions to security, prevention, and mitigation challenges, but those approaches typically fall short. That’s because they usually rely on less-than-effective means of identifying stealth malware before it causes extensive damage. Even when they do find threats, software-only solutions often stop at identification, leaving the harder work of blocking and remediating to your security analysts. Software-only solutions are also ineffective for remediating remote PCs that are locked up or unable to boot, because they don’t have any means of accessing unresponsive devices. Security professionals need a newer, more effective tactic for stronger, more proactive security that helps their organizations stay healthier and—when infected—recover faster.
