The transition to remote and hybrid work models has transformed business IT infrastructures, allowing corporate endpoints to exist outside of the corporate network and its perimeter-based protections. In an era when endpoints are now an organization’s first line of defense against cyber attacks, endpoint security solutions help identify and stop these threats before they pose a risk.
An endpoint protection solution should offer comprehensive protection to the endpoint and to the corporate network.
The right choice of an endpoint security solution depends on the endpoint in question and your company’s unique needs. Here you’ll see some general features that you’ll find in all of Asia E-Pros’s endpoint protection offerings.
Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) provides continuous and comprehensive visibility into what is happening on endpoints in real-time.
These advanced threat detection and investigation and response capabilities, including incident data search and investigation, alert triage, suspicious activity validation, threat hunting, and malicious activity detection and containment are the new generation of threat combat and are present in almost all our endpoint protection solutions.
Our endpoint protection solutions can easily detect and prevent infections by viruses, worms, and other malware.
Encryption is the most effective way to protect data against unauthorized access and potential breach. Our endpoint protection solutions offer full disk encryption (FDE) and support encryption of removable media.
Network segmentation is essential for managing access and cybersecurity risk. Firewall and application control functionality enables network segmentation and blocking of traffic based on security policy and application-specific rules.
Ransomware and other malware variants have unique behaviors that make them detectable without the use of signatures. By monitoring these behaviors,Asia E-Pros can help you detect and respond to zero-day attacks.
Malicious links are a commonly-used technique in phishing attacks, and inappropriate web usage on corporate devices impedes productivity and puts the company at risk. URL filtering helps prevent these threats by blocking malicious and inappropriate websites.
Endpoints can be infected with malware via various means such as phishing, vulnerability exploitation, and more. Our endpoint security solutions can extract and inspect files in a sandboxed environment to identify and block malicious content from reaching your endpoints.
Asia E-Pros boasts a comprehensive portfolio of endpoint security tools that will help you ensure that your endpoints and network are secure and resilient today and into the future.
Organizations of all sizes are vulnerable to nation-states, hackers, organized crime, and malicious and accidental insider threats. Endpoint security is one of the first things organizations look into when securing their enterprise networks.
Cyber threats have steadily grown in both volume and sophistication, so has the need for more advanced endpoint security solutions. Modern endpoint protection systems are designed to detect, analyze, block, and contain attacks in progress. Here’s how Asia E-Pros can help you discover, setup and manage endpoint protection for your network.
According to IDC, 70% of all successful data breaches begin at an endpoint. This shouldn’t come as any surprise as endpoints represent a distinct weak part of the network. There are a huge amount of operating and application vulnerabilities that can be exploited through the endpoint. A single user may have multiple endpoints that can be breached. An endpoint protection platform is a vital part of enterprise cybersecurity for a number of reasons.
First of all, in today’s business world, data is often the most valuable asset a company has—and to lose that data, or access to that data, could put the entire business at risk of insolvency. Businesses have also had to contend with not only a growing number of endpoints, but also a rise in the number of types of endpoints. These factors make enterprise endpoint security more difficult on their own, but they’re compounded by remote work and BYOD policies—which make perimeter security increasingly insufficient and create vulnerabilities.
The threat landscape is becoming more complicated, too: Hackers are always coming up with new ways to gain access, steal information or manipulate employees into giving out sensitive information.
Add in the opportunity cost of reallocating resources from business goals to addressing threats, the reputational cost of a large-scale breach, and the actual financial cost of compliance violations, and it’s easy to see why endpoint protection platforms have become regarded as must-haves in terms of securing modern enterprises.
To mitigate breaches and their potential effects, IT professionals are investing in new and better endpoint security monitoring and management solutions. A recent study found that of organizations that have been breached in the past year, 35% are increasing security and audit requirements and 26% are increasing spending on threat intelligence technologies, 26% on prevention technologies, and 22% on incident response programs.
To ensure fast, efficient, and comprehensive remediation of security breaches, IT security decision-makers have acknowledged the need to reduce the complexity of their endpoint security environments. Today’s enterprises value integrated endpoint security solutions that can effectively handle the whole process of endpoint security, including attack prevention, detection, and remediation.
More advanced threats, such as polymorphic attacks, fileless malware, and zero-day attacks, can be detected using EDR capabilities. The EDR solution is able to provide enhanced visibility and a choice of response options by leveraging continuous monitoring.
On-premises and cloud-based EPP solutions are available. While cloud-based technologies are more scalable and easier to integrate with your existing infrastructure, certain regulatory/compliance standards may necessitate on-premises security. This integrated endpoint security solution combines real-time continuous monitoring and data collecting with automated reaction and analysis capabilities based on rules.
An EDR security system’s principal functions are to:
Endpoint security software safeguards endpoints, whether they’re physical or virtual, on-premise or off-premise, in data centres or the cloud. It can be found on laptops, desktops, servers, virtual computers, and even remote endpoints.
Antivirus is one of the most basic forms of endpoint protection and is commonly included as part of an endpoint security solution. Antivirus simply discovers and removes known viruses and other types of malware, rather than employing advanced techniques and processes such as threat hunting and endpoint detection and response (EDR). Traditional antivirus works in the background, checking a device’s content for patterns that match a virus signature database on a regular basis. Antivirus software is put on both within and outside the firewall on individual devices.
When we talk about endpoints in your business environment, we’re generally referring to:
A device is considered an endpoint if it is connected to a network. With the rise of BYOD (bring your own device) and IoT (Internet of Things), the number of individual devices linked to a company’s network can easily approach the tens (and hundreds) of thousands.
Endpoints (particularly mobile and remote devices) are a favourite target of adversaries because they serve as entry points for threats and malware. Think of the latest wearable watches, smart devices, voice-controlled digital assistants, and other IoT-enabled smart devices as examples of mobile endpoint devices that have evolved beyond Android and iPhones. Our cars, airlines, hospitals, and even the drills on oil rigs today have network-connected sensors. As the various types of endpoints have evolved and increased, so have the security solutions that protect them.
The need of implementing a comprehensive endpoint protection solution is highlighted in the current SANS endpoint security survey. The following are some of the survey’s significant findings:
Today’s endpoint devices are the weakest links in any company’s network. Some businesses wisely deploy antivirus and anti-malware software on their office PCs, but what about their mobile devices? Employee malice or negligence is a risk, and endpoint devices are how they gain network access.
What about phishing assaults and hackers? In reality, programmers attempting to attack system flaws choose the easiest vulnerability with the best chance of succeeding. As more firms operate remotely, there are more endpoint devices, which means there is also more potential for failure.
Typically, endpoint security software will include these key components:
