What is Endpoint Security?
Endpoint Security or Endpoint Protection is a centralized approach to protecting all endpoints, servers, desktops, laptops, smartphones and other IoT “Internet of Things” devices that connected to the corporate IT network from cyber threats. This methodology makes security management is efficient, effective and easier.
Some vendors offer Endpoint Security systems that include antivirus, firewall and other high defined security software, but there is a difference between endpoint security and the antivirus. When any BYOD devices such as smartphones, laptops, tabs etc- is connected remotely to a network, the endpoint thus created would provide an entry point for threats and malware.
Endpoint security management is all about enough securing such endpoints and thereby securing a network by blocking access attempts and such risky activities at endpoints.
