An endpoint is any device including laptops, desktops, smartphone, tablets, servers, and virtual environments that connects to the corporate network from outside its firewall.
Endpoint security is the process of providing protection to those devices with the ultimate aim of protecting the network and an organization’s data. Endpoint security should be a critical part of an organization’s overall security posture because devices that are outside a well-protected, internal network create pathways for attackers to bypass standard controls.
Although Endpoint Security services may include antivirus, antimalware and web filtering solutions, it differs from traditional security in that it must happen in real-time across many endpoints, geographic regions, and bandwidths.
Endpoint Security helps businesses keep critical systems, intellectual property, customer data, employees, and guests safe from ransomware, phishing, malware, crypto-threats and other modern threats.
