This definition explains the meaning of Endpoint Security. Endpoints are any computing device that connects to a network, including PCs, laptops, smartphones, tablets, and other smart gadgets. Endpoint security is installing, optimising, and upgrading the products and protective measures; designed to defend these endpoints against a wide array of malware and cyber attacks.
Endpoint security is not just antivirus software, it is security software run on individual devices and monitored by a centralised management platform. This allows technicians to configure antivirus apps, data access restrictions, and updates for each company-registered device.
