What do Endpoint Protection solutions do and why they are different from the Anti Viruses of days past?
Security doesn’t come for granted, and criminals are hardly waiting to get into your system and network. They are after your data and they have a great (financial) motivation. When talking about Endpoint protection or endpoint security, we are referring to security of individual devices such as workstations, servers and mobile devices, from which a network is accessed.
They make your work more flexible and mobile, but many times they are overlooked entry vectors for threats to your infrastructure / network. Nowadays it is not enough for endpoint security solution to just block known malware, but it must also recognize suspicious behaviour and raise an alert / action and if infection indeed happens, it should also be able to clean it.
