With the proliferation of endpoints in organizations—typically driven by bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies and an expansion in the use of Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices—more control is needed. With more endpoints, the attack surface increases, thus more opportunities for fraudsters to gain access. Endpoints encompass any machine or connected device that could conceivably connect to a corporate network.
The endpoints of your network—computers and mobile devices—are often lucrative and easy points of entry for attackers. Endpoint protection involves shielding these devices, whether malware is directly installed by hackers or an unsuspecting user installs it unwillingly. Every endpoint that connects to the corporate network is vulnerability, providing a potential entry point for cyber criminals. An endpoint protection solution begins with discovering endpoint risks, then monitoring and assessing the level of danger.
With remote access, a user can monitor, maintain, and control devices as long as they are connected to the same network. Remote access connection enables one to connect to a private network from a different location.
