What is Endpoint Security?
Endpoint security refers to an approach of securing user devices such as laptops, desktops, tablets and mobile phones which connect to a network. These ‘endpoints’ are often exploited by malicious actors in order to gain access to the network.
Endpoint Security is designed to protect these devices against cybersecurity threats. Traditionally endpoint security has taken the form of anti-virus software but this has evolved into malware protection and round the clock intelligence. It also comprises of email and web filtering and firewall services. Endpoint Security forms a vital component of any cyber security strategy. It helps to protect your networks and intellectual property from attacks such as phishing, ransomware and malware.
Is Endpoint Security Important?
Endpoint Security has become more important than ever. With large numbers of employees working from home and with the growth in bring your own device (BYOD) policies there has never been more risk from cyber attack.
Threats grow each day and it is now more common that security breaches come via an endpoint. This means that traditional centralised security systems do not have the reach to protect these new remote devices.
We help organisations keep control of their endpoint security by implementing the latest strategies and offer endpoint security consultation and managed services.
