Enterprises are investing in different types of endpoint security products to secure their systems, but when technology doesn’t play well with each other, the systems are left unprotected.

Since there is no one-size-fits-all technology addressing the various security threats the enterprise has to defend against, security teams cobble together different products to get that coverage. Antivirus looks for malware, encryption tools protect the data, management platforms deploy patches, and application whitelisting and network access controls prevent unauthorized access. The assumption is that the web of defenses block most of the threats, so Absolute Software’s conclusion that 42 percent of endpoints are left unprotected at any given time is extremely unsettling.

“Increased security spending does not increase safety,” said Absolute’s CEO Christy Wyatt.

It is not about how many packages you use, it is about using right worthful security software with some whitelisting database approach.
I differ sand boxing technique entirely, however a better robust security solution, with all current patches and updates + Whitelist database approach serves better.I mean restricting (Default block) access for all employees across the office

Nothing is bullet proof --> Will never ever be.
