Key criteria for evaluating the effectiveness of IT security solutions

26 January 2016

What are the key criteria for evaluating the effectiveness of an IT security solution, e.g. a new endpoint protection solution?

Endpoint protection solutions are of significant importance after a data breach has happened. Then, speed in detecting the breach is important. And, of course, to hinder the attacker in searching the network for privileged accounts.

Thus security solutions should expand our ability to

  1. Reduce the attacker’s ability to interact with the company’s IT environment
  2. Reduce the time to discovery

If a vendor cannot prove how your company benefits from his security solution with regards to these criteria stop the evaluation.

Have a good day.
