Endpoint Security Solutions

Endpoint security protects laptops, mobile phones, tablets, POS (Point-Of-Sale) terminals, and other endpoint devices from threats through a centrally managed server. The server communicates with client programs running on each endpoint device, enabling it to:

  • Provide administrators with visibility and control over those devices
  • Provide an endpoint security VPN to each user attempting to connect
  • Correlate information obtained from clients to discover possible threats
  • Validate user credentials when an endpoint connects to the network
  • Scan individual endpoints to see whether they adhere to security policies
  • Restrict/quarantine/remove those that don’t meet security policy requirements

A comprehensive endpoint security plan typically incorporates the following solutions:

BYOD

BYOD policies come with productivity-enhancing benefits as well as several security issues. A BYOD solution will ensure safety for your company’s network even when accessed through employees’ personal devices by establishing security profiles before being allowed to connect.
