How endpoint protection works
Devices, such as a laptops, desktops and web-facing servers in an
organization can all make businesses vulnerable to attack. This is why
protection software is installed on all endpoint devices, to
protect an organization data, customer information and intellectual
property when its accessed by any device.
Endpoint Security has a few facets to cover the various
vulnerabilities and attack methods. These include malware protection
and antivirus; behavioral analysis and threat detection; and endpoint
detection and response (EDR) to reduce the impact of a breach. These
elements often come separately. In Endpoint Security these are
integrated into a single product for maximum efficiency.
A key benefit of endpoint protection is the reduced number of alerts
that security teams spend responding and quickly diagnosing real
threats and mitigating their impact.
