It’s a common refrain in cybersecurity: you can only protect what you can see. And while advances in endpoint protection technology have drastically increased the security of devices, organizations still struggle to understand which assets they have, and whether they’re properly covered by security solutions.
Endpoint protection solutions, like Carbon Black, do an incredible job at protecting all of the endpoints on which they reside - and that’s what customers expect from these solutions. However, they can only protect the endpoints they know about, and don’t know about devices where they should be installed but are not.
Think of endpoint protection as a bouncer at a club. They do their best to keep anyone out that shouldn’t be there, and should anyone misbehave, they’ll toss them out. But you wouldn’t blame a bouncer at one club for a fight that happens in a club in another state, right? They don’t even know that club exists, it’s in a different location, and it would be physically impossible to intervene!
