Endpoints, like laptops, desktops and mobiles are a point of access to your business network. You need to be assured that if your staff uses the endpoint, your network can't get harmed.
The more devices a business has in its technological arsenal, the greater the need to make sure they're managed and secured correctly.
Managed Endpoint Security ensures:
Increased Business Continuity - Reliability - Trustability - Greater Control over business technology
What is Managed Endpoint Security
As mentioned above, endpoints are devices like laptops, phones and desktop computers and even things like digital printers and digital sales systems. The more of these endpoints exist in a network the more avenues cybercriminals have to access the core of your network. Managed endpoint security is a typically centralised software approach that will enable administrators to manage and identify end-users device access over the corporate network.
Examples of Managed Endpoint Security in practice include:
- Antivirus software
- Web Filtering
- Application/ patch management
- Network access control (segmenting the network into "need to know" areas to minimise the impact of a breach)
- Virtual private network (VPN) software
- Data and email encryption
Why do you need Managed Endpoint Security
Due to the current geopolitical tensions with Russia, cyberattacks have been increasing. Five Eyes have warned businesses of a substantial increase in attacks on the countries it serves. The risk of a cyberattack has never been higher and the damage a cyberattack can do has never been greater.
Managed endpoint security can mitigate the chances of a cyberattack happening, and more crucially, reduce the damage a cyberattack can do significantly.
