How to secure your endpoints with endpoint security solutions
Endpoint security protects the various devices on a network from a variety of threats. Technical and organizational measures prevent unauthorized access or the execution of malicious software. Learn more about the relevance of endpoint security systems in a digitalized world and which innovative protective measures we offer.
Endpoint security describes how to secure endpoints or end user devices. It is crucial to apply because endpoints serve as access points to a corporate network and are potential targets for hackers. Besides protecting endpoints from attacks, it also helps to meet important data protection and compliance requirements. Organizational measures belong to the field of endpoint security management. These include guidelines on how to handle end devices and external data carriers, awareness measures and training.
You should protect important end devices, including PCs, Notebooks, Smartphones and Tablets.
Today, different manufacturers offer a variety of solutions and products for endpoint security. Reactive protection such as antivirus software has proven to be largely ineffective. Only proactive solutions offer protection against the ever-increasing professional cybercrime-scene.
We present new concepts that offer comprehensive protection for end devices:
In recent years, attackers have made significant changes in the way they operate. Ransomware is used to extort high ransom money. Highly sophisticated spear fishing attempts via email can quickly mislead even experienced users. Additionally, there are always new security flaws in browsers or plug-ins such as Flash Player or Java.
At the same time, the number of end devices that communicate in a corporate network increased significantly. This is also due to the fact of trends like Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) as well as the increased number of employees who work from home. They access central resources of organization’s devices via the internet. This leads to new cybersecurity threats: mobile end devices are in the focus of attackers in order to penetrate corporate networks and gain access to sensitive data. Endpoint security is therefore indispensable in today's digitalized working environment in order to protect end devices comprehensively.
