Endpoint Security is a Must Today
Today’s digital business landscape gives organizations like yours the opportunity to let employees use their own devices to conduct their work from wherever they are in the world. That flexibility comes with a price, however — your corporate IT infrastructure is vulnerable to whatever cybersecurity risks those devices cannot avoid. Endpoint security is becoming a more common IT security function and concern as more employees bring consumer mobile devices to work and companies allow its mobile workforce to use these devices on the corporate network.
Endpoint security is a way of protecting a corporate network when accessed via remote devices such as laptops or other wireless and mobile devices. Each device with a remote connecting to the network creates a potential entry point for cybersecurity threats. Endpoint security is designed to secure each endpoint on the network created by these devices.
Typically, endpoint security is a system that consists of security software located on a centrally managed and accessible server or gateway within the network. This is in addition to client software being installed on each of the endpoints (devices). The server authenticates logins from the endpoints and also updates the device software when needed. While endpoint security software differs by vendor, most offerings provide antivirus, anti-spyware, firewall and a host intrusion prevention system.
