Security solution provider AppSense expects the rapid adoption of its Application Manager’s to continue in the days ahead, as organizations become more aware of its ability to limit desktop vulnerabilities, said Jed Ayres, Senior Vice President of Marketing, AppSense.
“Today’s enterprise infrastructure is increasingly complex. Add to that the increasing number of desktops, laptops, workspaces and devices today’s knowledge worker uses, and the exposure to endpoint risk is nothing short of terrifying,” said Ayres.
In a press statement, the company said Application Manager has been selected to protect more than 900,000 endpoints last year. This accounts for more than 75 percent of the company’s new seats.
Standalone Application Manager seats have grown 50 percent in each of the last two years.
David Monahan, Research Director, Security and Risk Management, Enterprise Management Associates noted that endpoint systems are the greatest target for attack in today’s enterprise.
That is forcing IT professionals to take a very hard look at the security policies and practices used to protect and manage their endpoint systems.
“AppSense Application Managers’ endpoint application and privilege controls provide a powerful and manageable solution to protect vulnerable endpoints without disrupting user productivity,” Monahan said.
“When combined with other components like Management Center and Performance Manager they create a holistic, protective solution that enables security and compliance across multiple aspects of the environment without hindering user productivity,” Monahan added.
