Endpoint security supplements centralised security measures with additional protection at the point of both entry and exit
As the volume and sophistication of cybersecurity threats have steadily grown, so has the need for more advanced endpoint security solutions.
Endpoint security addresses the risks presented by devices connecting to an enterprise network.
There could be various endpoints on a network or in the cloud, often defined as end-user devices such as mobile devices, laptops, and desktop PCs, although hardware such as servers in a data center are also considered endpoints.
Endpoints are susceptible to a wide-range of threats including viruses, malware and brute force attacks, making them a prime target for criminals seeking to gain unauthorised access to target networks.
Securing point of entry
Any device, such as a desktop PC, laptop, smartphone or tablet, provides an entry point for cyberthreats. Endpoint security aims to secure every endpoint connecting to a network or in the cloud to block access attempts and other risky activity at these points of entry. As more businesses introduce policies such as BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and with more home and remote working, the enterprise network security perimeter has essentially dissolved.
Supplementing centralised security measures
The need for effective endpoint security measures has increased substantially. With employees relying on their own mobile devices, home computers and laptops to connect to company networks and conduct business, a centralised security solution is no longer adequate.
Endpoint security supplements centralised security measures with additional protection at the point of entry for many attacks as well as the point of exit for sensitive data.
