As personal identifiable data breaches become ever more prevalent within the media, it is essential that organisations, large and small, take measures to protect its clients, employees and business information.
Why your organisation should be using an Endpoint Security solution
Any device, such as a smartphone, tablet, or laptop, provides an entry point for threats. Endpoint security aims to adequately secure every endpoint connecting to a network to block access attempts and other risky activity at these points of entry. As more enterprises adopt practices such as BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and remote/mobile employees, the enterprise network security perimeter has expanded.
The need for effective endpoint security measures has increased substantially, particularly in light of the rise in mobile threats. With employees relying on mobile devices and home computers and laptops to connect to company networks and conduct business, a centralised security solution is no longer adequate for today’s ever-shifting and undefinable security perimeter. Endpoint security supplements centralised security measures with additional protection at the point of entry for many attacks as well as the point of egress for sensitive data.
