What is an endpoint protection system?

Endpoint protection (also known as endpoint security) is security software that examines data before it enters or exits your network or cloud application to protect endpoints from malicious activity and prevent sensitive data from falling into the wrong hands.

Providing a proactive response to network threats, endpoint protection will reduce the chance of malware being downloaded onto your devices, and ensure your business also remains compliant with required compliance regulations.

What is considered an endpoint?

An endpoint can be defined as any digital device that is connected to your network and could be used as a point of entry for malware, viruses, and other threats. Common endpoints include:

  • Desktops and laptops
  • Mobiles
  • Tablets
  • Printers
  • Servers
  • Payment systems
  • Music speakers (such as Bose or Sonos)
  • Fitness trackers and other health wearables (Fitbit, Apple Watch, Garmin)
  • Virtual assistants (such as Google Home or Amazon Alexa)

Why is endpoint protection crucial for business?

The rise of remote working and use of smart technology has led businesses to acquire an increasing number of endpoints, providing ample opportunities for cyberattacks to grow both in size and sophistication.

From zero-day attacks, where hackers can identify any unpatched software vulnerabilities across your endpoints, ransomware, which can encrypt data or infected devices, to computer exploits which enable hackers to create a “security exploit,” once a single device on your network is compromised, your business is at risk of significant financial harm.

In 2021, the global average cost of a data breach amounted to $4.24 million, an increase from $3.86 million the previous year. Reallocating resources to resolve potential damages, businesses could also be at risk of further reputational and regulatory costs if compliance requirements are breached.

Alongside the use of a Virtual Private Network (VPN), which can secure your personal data and protect your privacy online, endpoint protection looks to protect these endpoints.

Is endpoint protection the same as antivirus?

Antivirus can only secure your network from a single endpoint but cannot protect multiple endpoints, and will need to be updated manually, whereas endpoint protection can protect all endpoints anytime, anywhere.

Endpoint protection, such as AVG Cloud Management Console, offers a suite of solutions, including antivirus, which effectively protects all your devices. This includes all servers, workstations, and mobile devices, guaranteeing robust visibility from a single location and protecting from a variety of threats, including ransomware attacks and phishing scams, that can bypass antivirus software if not updated.
