The Risk of “Free” Endpoint Security

Every organization has deployed anti-virus / anti-malware solutions, but how much have you have actually reduced your risk? Aberdeen's analysis not only confirms the high risk of unprotected endpoints, but also demonstrates that endpoint protection really does reduce risk. In addition, it confirms that “free” endpoint protection (e.g., Microsoft) is better than no protection at all, but also shows that in fact it is not really free – enterprise-class endpoint protection (e.g., McAfee) actually reduces risk by 60–70% compared to the “free” solution, even net of the incremental licensing cost.
