Endpoint security refers to securing endpoints, or end-user devices like desktops, laptops, and mobile devices. Endpoints serve as points of access to an enterprise network and create points of entry that can be exploited by malicious actors.
Endpoint security software protects these points of entry from risky activity and/or malicious attack. When companies can ensure endpoint compliance with data security standards, they can maintain greater control over the growing number and type of access points to the network.
Examples of endpoint security solution
- Sophos endpoint
- ESET endpoint
- AVG endpoint
- Norton endpoint etc
Importance of Endpoint Security
- Any device, such as a smartphone, tablet, or laptop, provides an entry point for threats. Endpoint security aims to adequately secure every endpoint connecting to a network to block access attempts and other risky activity at these points of entry.
- Prevent problems before they happen.
- Prevents Data theft.
Protects computing resources from processing unproductive malicious activities.
