What is Endpoint Management? Protect Network Endpoints Now!

The pandemic created the need for an unprecedented expansion of remote access work. With each new remote device used for business, the number of vulnerable network endpoints increases. An endpoint is any device that is connected to your network. All cell phones, laptops, tablets, printers and other networked devices, often separated by vast physical distances, are now potential entry points for cyberattacks. The FBI reported more than a 400% increase in cybercrime over the past year. As a result, securing vulnerable endpoints has become a crucial part of cyber security.

What is Endpoint Security?

Endpoint Security is the cyber security function of securing all of your business’ networked devices against cyberattacks. It has been reported that more than 70% of cyberattacks are launched through a network endpoint; therefore, device security has become a top priority. The worse news is that an endpoint network breach, left undetected, might easily invade your entire network. One unprotected mobile device can give cybercriminals access to all your hard-earned data.

Endpoints have become the most vulnerable parts of networks and are responsible for some of the most significant data breaches. Your small to midsized business could be “brought to its knees” by an unsuspecting employee user who is not following cyber security best practices. Additionally, many companies scrambling to reinvent their workflow for a remote-access environment have not kept up with securing endpoints. Unfortunately, this is a time when cybercriminals are releasing new, more robust and sophisticated versions of malware at a record pace.

Almost two-thirds of SMBs are unaware of their endpoint vulnerabilities and, if attacked, cannot isolate the origin of the incident and respond quickly and effectively enough to contain such a breach. However, there are some cyber security basics that can be very helpful in protecting endpoints:

Device Security is not a simple matter. Strong endpoint security entails a long list of considerations, including:

As our use of online technology now encompasses so many areas of our personal and business lives, cybercriminals stay in step and continue to find new, creative ways of attacking your private or business data. Unfortunately, smaller businesses have neither the time nor the budget for a full-time IT department. However, it is essential to employ IT experts to assess your cyber vulnerability and help you design the best layers of protection for your hard-earned data.
