Endpoint security is the practice of safeguarding endpoints or entry points of end-user devices such as desktops, laptops, and mobile devices from being exploited by malicious actors and crusades. Endpoint protection platforms examine files entering the network.
Endpoint protection, also known as endpoint protection platforms (EPP), and endpoint security, refers to centrally managed security solutions that organizations leverage to protect endpoints.
Endpoint security uses encryption and application control to secure devices accessing an organization’s network, thereby controlling security on those avenues of access to monitor and block risky activities. Encrypting data on endpoints helps to protect against data leaks and loss. Application control ensures endpoint users do not execute unauthorized applications that could create vulnerabilities in the network.
Endpoint security solutions use a client-server model of protection, employing both a centrally managed security solution to protect the network as well as client software installed on each endpoint used to access that network. Some solutions work on a SaaS (Software as a Service) model, by which both central and endpoint security solutions are maintained remotely.
Fortified Networks’ endpoint security includes data security, network security, advanced threat prevention, forensics, endpoint detection and response (EDR), and remote access VPN solutions.
