The connection of endpoint devices such as laptops, tablets, mobile phones, Internet-of-things (IoT) devices, and other wireless devices to corporate networks creates attack paths for security threats – and that’s where endpoint security comes in. Endpoint security refers to the protection of computer networks remotely bridged to company devices and attempts to ensure that such devices follow a definite level of compliance to standards.
Endpoint detection and response (EDR) platforms can be deployed on the endpoint to protect against file-based, fileless, and other types of malware, through prevention and investigation, and remediation capabilities.
Customizable threat intel feeds, automated watchlists, and customizable behavior detection make EDR a worthwhile investment in the post-COVID-19 era, where most of your team works from more than one workspace.
According to the “Cybersecurity Business Report,” cybercrime damages are expected to cost the world 6 Trillion in 2021.
