Endpoint protection is the process of stopping unauthorized agents and campaigns from targeting endpoints or access points of end-user computers such as desktops, notebooks, and handheld devices. Cybersecurity risks are secured by endpoint security services on a network or the internet. Endpoint security has advanced from antivirus tools to robust defenses against complex ransomware and new zero-day attacks.
Nation-states, hackers, organized crime, and deliberate and unintended insider attacks pose a danger to companies of all sizes. Endpoint security is often referred to as cybersecurity’s frontline, and it is one of the first areas that companies look to protect their networks.
