How does endpoint protection work?
Devices, such as a laptops, deskopts and
web-facing servers in an organization can all make businesses
vulnerable to attack. This is why endpoint
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 protection has a number of 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 to
reduce the impact of a breach. These elements often come separately or
can be integrated into one product for maximum efficiency.
A key benefit of endpoint protection is the
reduced time that security teams have to spend dealing with false
threats while quickly diagnosing real threats and mitigating their impact.
