Endpoint defense is a critical part of every robust security programme. Often known as protection for endpoints. However, both words apply to the same protection solution that protects network endpoints from:
- Zero-day exploits
- Human error
- Data leaks
Why is the endpoint security critical
It is a common misconception that anti-virus programs can avoid targeted and persistent attacks on their own. We can’t do that.
Organizations are constantly at risk as the number of endpoints is increasingly rising and weakening their protection network.
Employees working remotely in the cloud, using their own computers, and connecting to non-secure networks such as Wi-Fi means that the security perimeter has more endpoints and security holes than ever.
To completely secure your network and data, you need to implement centralized Endpoint Protection to secure your endpoints, such as cell phones, computers, workstations, and endpoint servers.
Centralized security of the network is no longer adequate
Previously, most of the flaws existed across the network. Yet today’s work points to endpoints as the most commonly used route of attack.
It’s an simple gateway that attackers can use to break down networks and steal confidential data or distribute malicious code, which is why insecure endpoints have quickly become a widely used access point for attacks such as malware.
Without endpoint security, the moment an unsecured endpoint device connects to the network or copies data to an external computer; the company loses power.
When security parameters are continuously changing due to remote devices and bringing your own devices (BYOD) in, retain the greatest control by adding further endpoint safety security layers.
Why the gateway is protecting the network
Through encrypting data and managing application devices to manage and operate to access the network, you can gain:
- Greater control over which endpoint devices will gain access. As well as tracking and stopping suspicious activity.
- Help avoid data leakage and data loss by encrypting information on endpoints and any removable storage devices used.
- And by monitoring which applications can access the network, it helps to avoid any unauthorized applications from creating network vulnerabilities.
Enhanced security with Endpoint Review
Blocking malware does not have adequate security on its own. They can still be a malicious code present in the memory of the computer.
Endpoint Analysis is an automotive tool for companies that analyzes every single piece of code that runs in the memory of the endpoint computer.
Scanning the memory of all endpoints using the Genetic Malware Detection technology helps you to detect in-memory threats such as:
- Fileless malware
- Packed malware
- Multi-stage malware
- Unauthorized code-injections
Combining endpoint analysis and endpoint security
Most endpoint protection solutions concentrate on acting as bouncers and securing the system gateway, which works well to prevent compromised files and scripts from running inside the endpoint and from accessing the network.
But, provided enough time, most endpoint security protections can be bypassed by attackers. And cleaning the computer from the code still running in the memory requires a full re-format to ensure that it’s fully stable again.
But by checking every piece of binary code in the memory of a computer, you can detect sophisticated in-memory threats.
Combining research with security, businesses can secure endpoint access to their data and network, and automatically search the memory of suspicious endpoint devices for hidden threats.
