New book aims to dispel endpoint security myths

Avecto Vice President, Andrew Avanessian has published his first book to help security professionals overcome common endpoint security challenges.

The Endpoint Security Paradox: Realising implementation success, draws on Andrew’s years of experience in security projects and implementations to explore some of the limitations of typical tools and technologies used to combat today’s threats.

Describing his latest book, Andrew said:

“All too often I’m asked to analyze breaches and find myself repeating the benefits of building sound security foundations. Time and time again I see preventable breaches and many organizations failing to align their security requirements with the needs of the business. Failing to understand why you’re embarking on a security project and how that project fits with the wider strategic goals of your company can be a costly mistake to make. I wanted to help organizations strive for excellence, instead of settling for average or weak security.

“After years of seeing these projects fail or organizations struggling to strike a balance between security and usability, I decided to write The Endpoint Security Paradox. The book shines a light on implementation success and security best practice I’ve experienced with leading organizations around the world. The book cuts through the noise and the hype to reveal how effective endpoint protection needn’t be complicated to achieve.”

The Endpoint Security Paradox is now available to purchase on eBook or hardcopy through Amazon and has already sold more than 4,000 copies in the space of a few months.

Andrew added: “It’s fantastic to see how well the book is being received by the security community. I’ve had many people read the book and immediately recognize the scenarios and challenges I discuss as well as the benefits of focusing on their security foundations.”
