Endpoint devices are defined as any piece of IT equipment that is connected to a company network and the Internet. It can include mobile devices, computers, network switches, phones, and printers.
And each of these pieces of equipment can be a target for hackers to try and gain access by circumventing security software.
What endpoint security management aims to do is maintain a complete map and inventory of all devices connected to the network and determine whether they pose a risk and require special attention.
While it’s possible for security administrators to do this to a certain extent manually, there is a safer option to take.
Endpoint security systems work by using ongoing monitoring processes of all the devices connected to the network to ensure that only properly secured devices are connected.
And this is where you need an endpoint management solution that offers advanced protection.
