Sydney, AUS: GoTo announces today GoTo Resolve Endpoint Protection, a powerful new security add-on for GoTo Resolve’s suite of IT management and support tools. These capabilities build on the product’s existing robust security offerings to provide even more ways for businesses to consolidate, govern, and secure their critical systems and valuable data with ease and confidence. This functionality is powered by Bitdefender’s industry-leading cybersecurity technology.
The need for ongoing endpoint protection is pivotal for all businesses across all industry sectors, as the ACCC reports Australia continues to suffer at the hand of cyber threats, with $24 million dollars alone lost to phishing scams in 2022. GoTo’s recent 2023 IT Priorities Report indicates that remote and hybrid work show no signs of slowing down, and that means IT teams must be able to secure every employee device and endpoint, regardless of their location or local network.
“Protecting against cyber threats has gone beyond the priorities of IT workers and is now a core business focus in every boardroom across the Asia Pacific region,” said Lindsay Brown, Vice President and General Manager of APJ at GoTo.
“Keeping organisations safe and secure is keeping CEOs and CIOs awake at night, particularly in light of the recent stream of cyber security attacks on businesses throughout the region. Yet the pressure is still weighing heavily on IT departments,” said Brown.
In GoTo’s IT Priorities Report, 52% of Australian organisations said they saw an increase in IT workloads in the past year and 98% want to reduce the burden on IT through the right software choice.
“When faced with economic challenges and budget constraints, organisations need to utilise an integrated IT management, support and business communication solution that will protect users wherever they are located, while also reducing IT workloads to ensure maximum efficiency and safety for the organisation,” explained Brown.
Integrating with the rest of the GoTo Resolve suite, GoTo Resolve Endpoint Protection does just that, providing enterprise-class security to safeguard businesses against diverse attack vectors including malware, viruses, and other malicious threats.
The power of Bitdefender
By partnering with Bitdefender, GoTo is providing customers with further levels of protection, backed by one of the world’s biggest names in cybersecurity. Bitdefender’s well-established technology is one of the primary reasons GoTo selected it for GoTo Resolve’s new Endpoint Protection to ensure unparalleled security against threats, keeping businesses safe and providing peace of mind across the organisation.
