Regaining control - Securing end point systems

We should all agree that security of our endpoint systems (largely our "business desktops") is a complex nightmare now, a mess that no one can solve. Business applications have moved to the web, following a vision. Great. But having a browser and an email client today is still a massive security risk. Almost all businesses still rely on a single, compatible desktop for accessing business applications that have (almost all) moved to the web. I find this ironic in light of the universality of the Web and the availability of less expensive, more feature-rich alternatives that are easier to manage and secure. However, today's business environment means that our focus on security of the endpoint still starts with Internet Explorer, an integral part of today’s business operating system. Regaining control
