What is Endpoint Security and Why It's Necessary?

If you have ever heard of endpoint security being talked about by others, you probably wonder what it is and why it's necessary. It is considered a policy-based approach to protection of devices and requires those devices to comply with particular criteria before they can access the network and its resources. At Comodo, we understand the difficulties associated with finding a solution and keeping information safe, so we have developed a product to help.

Endpoints can include:

  • Laptops
  • Smartphones
  • PCs
  • Tablets
  • POS terminals
  • Bar code readers

Because endpoints cover a wide array of devices, it is necessary to ensure that your solution works with all of them.

For example, you may own an office building and have many employees and various branches. If you are considering a BYOD (bring your own device) program, employees could bring any computer device to work. This can cause severe problems with safety, so it's important to consider a product that can help.

What They Do?

Endpoint security systems can be purchased as a dedicated appliance or software and will help to control, management and discover all computing devices across the network, including mobile ones brought from home by employees.

You can set up the required elements to ensure that you are compliant with all policies. If a device doesn't comply, you can restrict their access or quarantine them until you can figure out what to do.

Why They're Needed

When employees download necessary information from one computer to another, they risk contaminating every computer. Confidential information may be in danger, which can lead to many issues, both legal and monetary. Endpoint security options can ensure that end users, employees and corporate servers are protected.
