What is Endpoint protection?

Endpoint Protection is a category of security products aimed at protecting endpoint devices. In simple terms, an endpoint is just a location where data can be obtained. This includes computers, workstations, tablets, laptops and smartphones. Endpoint Protection platforms aim to protect these devices and allow IT departments to regulate their usage. To work, these platforms require a security software be installed in a centrally managed server, with client software that is installed on each Endpoint device. Endpoint Protection normally refers to Cloud-Based Endpoint Protection, which Endpoint Security refers to on-premise solutions.

The core aim of Endpoint Protection is to block malware and protect endpoints from threats. Security features these platforms offer normally include personal firewalls, port and device control and vulnerability assessments. Endpoint Protection platforms should also provide a management interface which allows IT departments to monitor all devices within a business network. They can use this to run system scans and monitor access and usage. This should be simple to use and centralized, allowing admins to easily generate reports, view activity and run scans. This helps to track people using their own devices for work and working from home.

There are a few different kinds of Endpoint Protection Software. Endpoint Protection Suites offer a full Endpoint Protection platform. Endpoint Management Software focus on admin controls and system response. Endpoint Detection and Response focus on scanning and stopping Endpoint threats. The ease of use and scalability of these platforms is very important. Large enterprises will need a platform that can manage a large number of users, while a smaller company will need an easy to manage platform that can scale. Endpoint Protection can also impact device security, and so it’s important to test their performance. Some platforms may also have low detection rates for threats, and create false positives, which can put strain on IT departments.
