Endpoint devices are all the machines which are connected via the Internet into the network that is literally the “technical heart” of your business. This is also a term describing all your desktop computers, laptops, smartphones, POS systems, printers, scanners and tablets. Anything that your employees use to communicate with one another, and share data is a point of vulnerability. Each of your business endpoints is a doorway through which your employees access your critical data. However, endpoint devices the weakest links in every business’ network today. 

As a result of the COVID – 19 pandemic the workplace now comprises a combination of office-based, remote and hybrid workers who are increasingly using their personal devices to work from anywhere.  In addition, employee negligence or malice is a concern, and endpoint devices are exactly how they have access to the network. Data is a vital business resource, and like other significant business resources, it must be secured against any dangers.
