Why endpoint security is important? 

In today’s world of rapidly evolving, tech staff are already under heavy workloads, leaving little time to hunt down Endpoint threats from such as laptops, desktops, smartphones, and tablets; they can all become potential attack vectors, so that’s why it’s important to understand what endpoint security, or endpoint protection is and how it works.

What is driving the need for endpoint security solutions?

The traditional approach and the widely known security perimeter which protects the corporate network, is through a centralized firewall. But now, it is no longer applicable to today’s network security while users roam outside the firewall’s perimeter.

 

  Traditional centralized network: single place for security enhancement

With the massive shift to the remote working model and applications on the cloud, a decentralized network provides greater privacy as communication is not passing through a single central server but passes through multiple devices. However, any home and business devices can be an entry point for an attack. Endpoint security plays a crucial role for businesses, ensuring the assets and data are protected from ransomware and other cyberattacks.
