Business endpoint protection solutions
Leaving your systems exposed to the Internet can put them at risk.
What is endpoint protection?
- In the past, anti-virus was all that was required to protect your computer, but the depth and breadth of threats has increased as more connectivity and capability is brought into devices.
- Endpoint protection includes but is not limited to: anti-virus, anti-ransomware, anti-adware and anti-spyware, firewalls, mail protection, and even browser and application protection.
- It is a comprehensive set of programs and configuration that prevents attackers from gaining control or access to your equipment.
Where should I be running endpoint protection?
- It should be running on any personal device that accesses company data: computers, tablets, and phones.
- You may even want to require users to run it on individually owned devices that access your company data.
What can endpoint protection help prevent?
- Data loss or extraction due to rootkits or ransomware, time and expense due to equipment being down from viruses or performance issues caused by spyware and adware, and even remote hijacking of systems by hackers.
- There is an ever-growing list of threats and angles of attack which outside forces can use to exploit your system for data, ransom, or even just ad clicks.
How do I implement endpoint protection?
- There are many free or paid applications that can help you with some or all of these issues, but a centrally managed and comprehensive solution will be better than a scattershot selection of random applications and settings. Some is probably even baked in to your operating system.
