What is an Endpoint Security?

Endpoint Security

Endpoints to the generic audience it would be meaning that something which is connected at the end of something as if we are talking about at the end of a land shore .

So basically an endpoint are the end-user devices such as desktops, laptops, and mobile devices which need to be secured from the exploits by an malicious actors. Endpoint security is the practice of securing the entry points of the end-user devices.

To give you a more clearer picture check out the diagram below:

API Architecture

To understand the working of this API Architecture, you could checkout my earlier blogs on this link https://doctoolss.com/api/letss-understand-api/

So here I would like to tell you about the end-users which are the applications or the laptops/desktops/smartphones used by the users like us starting from the Web servers > Internet Platform > Systems/machines on which we work, this is how it works at the background.

The security related to the endpoint is the prime concern as the antivirus softwares provides comprehensive protection from sophisticated malware and evolving zero-day threats. As today endpoint protection systems are designed to quickly detect, analyze, block, and contain attacks in progress.

There are endpoint security providers by BlueCoat Proxy, Cylance End Point Security and many others in the market. To know more about the best practices or to understand the technology contact the undersigned.

Windows 10 software update rings

The MDM’s should be updated with the latest software of windows to secure it from any cyberattacks.
