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.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) to combat with COVID19

Artificial Intelligence

AI technology to be applied during this epidemic time of COVID19 as it can be most effective by the brainstorming of IT leaders and Medical Superintendents.

Question which arises here is how?

As per a recent press release published by Gartner which was closely monitored by our DocTooLss technical content team where it said that  “CIOs and CDOs in governmental and healthcare organizations, should leverage AI in five core areas to improve decision making during the coronavirus pandemic, according to Gartner, Inc.

The five areas where the AI will combat with COVID19 are:

  • Early Detection and Epidemic Analysis
  • Containment    
  • Triage and Diagnosis
  • Healthcare Operations
  • Vaccine Research & Development (R&D)

Some pointers which we think we should know about:

Early Detection and Epidemic Analysis: AI technique is all about to understand, analyse, and predict where the virus is spreading or slowing down.

If by AI automatic tracking of citizens who are the carriers of this pandemic COVID19 can be tracked down via their mobile phone locations and public facial recognition and backtracking the movement of people to identify the source of the virus. Ex: India which has recently made it compulsory for its citizens to download Aarogya Setuapplication on their mobiles.

Containment  : With the news breaking in to apply Lockdowns around the world, with one message being spread as an anthem i.e. stay-at-home, be safe.

So here AI could act as behaviour analytics in reading the dynamics of human behaviour.

Law enforcement can predict where and when people may not adhere to stay-at-home orders or social distancing through predictive enforcement and dispatch enforcement units accordingly.” as quoted by Gartner .

Triage and Diagnosis: AI-enabled self-triage has helped patients including virtual health assistants, in identifying people if they possibly are infected and if they infected then what can be the next steps for its treatment.

Healthcare Operations: AI plays an important role in distributing evenly the healthcare operations and hospital resources by making the availability of qualified medical staff, materials and equipment as allocated by their healthcare CIOs and CDOs.

Vaccine Research & Development (R&D): AI graphs and Natural-Language Processing (NLP) which is used to identify findings, procedures, medications, allergies and participants. The test on humans such as the plasma therapy which is still not a treatment but going on trials on the patients of COVID19.

Healthcare CIOs and CDOs should explore every avenue of AI to fight COVID-19 using an ongoing and systematic process of AI application identification and prioritization as quoted by Gartner .
