In order to assure hackers are detected and your information is secure, eSentire provides endpoint prevention, detection and response. 

The Role of Endpoint Security 

The more devices that are connected to a company network results in more possible entry points for an attacker to gain access to data. With the average employee using at least 3 devices for work, all it takes is one crack for a criminal to launch an attack. 

What exactly is endpoint protection? In a basic sense, it is any protective measure that prevents endpoint devices from being compromised. Most people are quick to think of antivirus when they think of endpoint security, but there’s a lot more to it.

What are the biggest threats to endpoints?

  • Phishing:  Attacks designed to trick users into clicking malicious links and email attachments
  • Spear phishing: Targeted phishing attacks that appear to be from sources you know and trust
  • Unpatched vulnerabilities: Flaws, bugs, or weaknesses discovered in software that can lead to security concerns and exploits
  • Malvertising: Attack campaigns that deliver payloads of malware by disguising themselves as ads
  • Drive-by-downloads: Attacks that install malware on an endpoint as soon as the user visits an infected website.

Benefits of endpoint protection:

  • Stop attacks where they start:  By cutting off an infection before it has a chance to spread you drastically reduce the costs and complexity associated with remediation.
  • Strengthen your “weakest link”:  Shoring up your endpoints will raise your organization’s barrier to entry and solidify your IT security posture across the board.
  • Provide your users with a safety net:  Everyone makes mistakes, and when that happens to one of your users, having their device protected can prevent the wrong click from becoming a catastrophe.
  • Keep machines up and running:  Having even just one machine out of commission can be costly to a business. Strong endpoint protection helps you avoid downtime and keep important systems and files accessible.
