One of the most compelling arguments for robust endpoint security in today’s environment is that 70 percent of the most successful breaches originated at the endpoint. And, in today’s work from home (WFH) landscape, more employees are connecting to internal networks from endpoints outside the office than ever before.
The endpoint represents one of the greatest threats to an organization’s vulnerability and can be an easy path and entry point for cybercriminals. Through an endpoint, attackers can use your company’s assets to execute code or exploit vulnerabilities.
Because endpoints represent every device connected to your network, an attack can become unmanageable quickly if endpoints are not properly managed and secured.
Endpoint protection, on the other hand, includes not only antivirus detection but also comes in the form of firewalls, anti-malware software, IDS (intrusion detection systems), data loss prevention, and sandboxing (testing devices and patches in a non-production environment). Endpoint security accounts for the entire security infrastructure.An endpoint is much more than the laptops or mobile devices that are used every day. An endpoint is any remote device sending and receiving communications within an organization’s network, and include:
Endpoint protection is only possible when you are properly managing your endpoints – and only then, can you begin to think about the security on those devices.
