An endpoint is a remote computing device that communicates with the network to which it’s connected. Some examples of endpoint devices are desktops, laptops, smartphones, and servers. Endpoints are the sweet spots for cyber attackers since they are constantly connected to the internet.

Many of you may have the question “Why should I have an endpoint solution for my network?” Well, here is why, in today’s business world data is the most valuable asset in many organizations, and protecting it should be every company’s priority.

What is Endpoint Security?

Endpoint security or protection is an approach to the protection of computer networks that are remotely bridged to client devices. Endpoint security solutions protect endpoints on a network or the cloud environment from cyberattacks.

Endpoint security solutions offer a centralized management console that allows the system admins to control security for corporate endpoints using policy setting which depends on the type of protection the system requires. They work by examining files, processes, and system activities for suspicious and malicious indicators.

 

The core advantage of using an endpoint security solution is that it helps close vulnerable gaps by using advanced technology like Next Generation Anti-virus. Other advantages of having an endpoint security solution are, managed threat hunting, detection, and threat intelligence integration
