Endpoint Security Trends 2023

Organizational cyber resiliency has become a board-level priority due to the growing incidence and severity of cyber-attacks and the increased risk this brings. As enterprises look to prevent attacks and mitigate their impact when they inevitably occur, the security of endpoint devices, IT systems, software, networks, cloud environments and associated supply chains is of particular concern. For greater insight into the level and types of threats that enterprises are encountering, The Futurum Group, in collaboration with Dell Technologies, executed a survey of 989 technology and security professionals that play a role in the planning implementation, management, or operations pertaining to device-level security. A follow-up to an initial iteration of this survey published in 2020, these findings demonstrate how the world adapted post-pandemic, as well as how measures, practices and policies for security are evolving.

Alarmingly, nearly 90% of respondents surveyed indicated that their organization has experienced an increase in security issues, citing hardware-related attacks as a growing vector. Against this backdrop, nearly all indicated that their organization has been challenged to maintain a strong security posture. Specifically, today’s enterprises are challenged when it comes to recruiting and retaining the talent necessary to maintain a strong security posture (as noted by 95% of respondents). This is a particular challenge considering the pace at which malicious actors – including state-sponsored and other external threat actors, as well as those internal to the organization – are innovating. This is further compounded by employees bypassing standard security protocol to acquire and deploy technologies for remote or work-from-home use (as noted by 90% of respondents).

In an effort to keep pace with the growing number of threats, nearly all respondents also indicated that their organization has been changing and/or adapting corporate policies and business processes to maintain, and ideally improve, their security posture. Work remains, however, to ensure cyber resiliency across the hardware journey, which spans the supply chain, implementation of security tools and processes, and ongoing end-user operations. Our latest research report, Endpoint Security Trends 2023, digs into modern attack techniques and how IT and security practitioners can most effectively respond and react, grounded in quantitative survey feedback.

In this brief, you will learn:

  • How hardware-based attacks are rising
  • How global supply chains are a critical vulnerability to be addressed
  • How malicious and negligent insider-related issues continue to create risk
