Today’s IT admins need to keep track of an ever-growing number of mobile devices that inhabit their networks. Creating security strategies for network operations.
The act of deliberately accessing computer systems and networks without authorization is generally referred to as hacking. The term also applies to the act of exceeding one’s authority in a system. This would include authorized users who attempt to gain access to files or obtain permissions that they have not been granted. On such a theme it is crucial to verify that only authenticated devices access the system or data. Endpoint security targets security threats from a device-level viewpoint (e.g., laptops, cell phones, tablets). Each new connection on an entity’s network widens then the threat intelligence field.
The increase in BYOD (bring your own device) policies, in addition to threats targeting mobile device access and networks, create multiple endpoint vulnerabilities. In addition, employees working from home or connecting to Wi-Fi networks to work on-the-go means that the enterprise network security perimeter is more porous than ever.
Endpoint security software protects these points of entry from the risky activity and/or malicious attacks. When companies can ensure endpoint compliance with data security standards, they can maintain greater control over the growing number and type of access points to the network.
