With the rise of cloud computing and mobility and the remote work environment brought on by the pandemic, securing Linux endpoint devices has never been more challenging for the organization and its IT department. Endpoint encryption designed to protect data stored on endpoints such as devices, hardware and files has always been an essential component of fortifying a Linux information security architecture; however, perimeter security is no longer effective in protecting against sophisticated threats in this modern, mobile era.
Instead, organizations need a model that provides multiple fail-safes to strengthen their defenses against today’s advanced cyberattacks. To understand what is required to fortify the a modern Linux infosec architecture, we spoke with industry-leading Linux endpoint encryption provider WinMagic about the challenges of securing today’s Linux endpoints, the importance of defense-in-depth and full disk encryption to support a Zero Trust strategy, and how endpoint encryption with WinMagic SecureDoc for Linux delivers multi-layered, full disk encryption to fortify Linux infosec architectures.
Linux Endpoint Encryption Is More Critical than Ever for a Robust Cybersecurity Posture in 2022 & Beyond
Cyber risk has never been greater, and is a reality that organizations can no longer afford to ignore – malware incidents rose 358% in 2020, and 1 in 5 Americans experienced a ransomware attack that year. Linux endpoints are often seen as more secure than their Windows counterparts, but the belief that Linux is safe from malware and other
