Today’s endpoints (laptops/desktops/mobile) are exposed to several potential threats, which in turn could have a devastating impact to the organizations. Industry classifies these threats in four major buckets:
For organizations this means buying four different products to ensure that their endpoints are completely secure. The products come from different vendors and there is a significant challenge linked to buy, implement, integrate, optimize and manage. Also having three different agents on endpoints leads to a significant performance impact and on the management side having four different management consoles at the datacenter leads to complicated monitoring and management challenges. Its is on account of this complexity that in India 80% of the customers have implemented only one or two of the four security products.
Current security products that are available in the market, work on international security threat data, this means that local threats that emanate from India or targeted specifically for India get missed out.
Unlike the traditional approach of building individual security products, TPP will be a platform where all three-security scenarios will be a plug-in. There will be only one agent on the endpoint and only one management console in the datacenter, significantly improving the performance and reducing the management challenges. Also, when the customer implements TPP, he is assured of comprehensive endpoint security.
