With modern business practices requiring an increased amount of network and cloud based operations it’s rare for an employee not to use a computer or internet-connected device to complete their job everyday.
As the amount of access points to your network (endpoints) increase so do the vulnerabilities of security flaws that cyber criminals can exploit.
Traditional central network security won’t provide enough protection for your company moving into the future which is why Endpoint Protection is a terrific security measure to stop cyber threats at the point of entry.
Keep reading below where we discuss:
An Endpoint is an end-users device that connects to a greater network that can access its data, information or applications.
Common Endpoints of a network are:
In today’s modern business environment it’s not uncommon for employees to use several of the above endpoint devices so they can access company email, documents, systems, programs and other sensitive business information.
Endpoint Protection, or Endpoint Security, is cyber security software installed directly onto a users device which will protect against cyber threats including malware, ransomware, zero-day threats, DOS attacks and more.
Traditionally, this measure of network security would be known as an antivirus, however an Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP)
How does Endpoint Protection work?
Endpoint protection software provides enhanced visibility of the devices across your network which, when supported by the power of the cloud, can store large amounts of data that is then aggregated, processed and analysed rapidly to identify and remove threats trying to enter your network via user devices.
All endpoint information is presented in real-time to IT administrators via the Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP) who can monitor, review and rapidly respond to cyber threats and potential breaches flagged by the software.
The world-class endpoint protection platforms that Cythera provides businesses all over Australia use machine learning and automation processes to protect against cyber threats.
Endpoint security software should be a fundamental security measure in a company’s cyber security defence.
A major benefit of Endpoint Protection is that it strengthens one of the weakest parts of your network security and a vulnerability hackers are constantly targeting - your employees.
The most common cyber attacks come in the form of disguised messages and emails which are socially engineered to be clicked on by human users who may be deceived into entering private information, such as login credentials or other sensitive information.
From these security breaches caused by human error, cyber criminals can get a foothold in your ICT systems and infiltrate with malicious intent.
Another benefit of Endpoint protection: the end users won’t even know it’s installed and provide 24/7 protection. Once the Endpoint security software is installed on the device it may only consume <1% of the CPU, will run silently in the background and won’t disturb business operations.
