Protecting endpoint systems such as desktop computers and servers is an important part of any reasonably well-thought security strategy for both enterprise networks and home computers. The outbreak of devastating worms and email-borne viruses plus the damage and lost productivity of SPAM and spyware have brought to the public the mantra many security experts have been chanting for more than a decade: "...defense in-depth, defense in-depth, defense in-depth...". In part one of this article we introduce endpoint security solution technologies and analyze some of the technical challenges they face in providing effective security to Internet users and organizations. A collaborative approach that relies on cooperation between not only software components, but also between the users of endpoint security solutions is proposed as a plausible way to addressed these challenges.

A pretty decent presentation on endpoint security. Easy to understand and useful to read!
