Gartner Report: Endpoint and Server Security: Common Goals, Divergent Solutions

Posted by Nidhi Savla on Mon, Feb 15, 2021 @ 11:03 AM

IT infrastructure has evolved considerably over recent years, but security considerations have remained static for many organisations. As first enterprise workloads have moved out of the organization to the cloud and then increasingly due to Covid, endpoints have moved from the office to the home, security remains largely focused on protecting the perimeter of the organization.
