The threat landscape continues to evolve at alarming speed and the trends toward mobility and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) only serve to complicate enterprise network security. Network administrators are under increasing pressure to solve problems more quickly, but their visibility into their network is diminishing as technology becomes more complex.
Power Edge’s network security team can help you evaluate your current infrastructure and create a plan to implement the network security solutions, services and products to achieve your security and business objectives
Edge Security encompasses the following and will applicable to our customer based on the type of IT infrastructure that you operate:
Cloud security involves the procedures and technology that secure cloud computing
Why endpoint security is important?
An endpoint protection platform is a vital part of enterprise cybersecurity for a number
We provide a number of antivirus solutions including Comodo Internet Security,
Endpoint security is the practice of securing endpoints or entry points of end-user
Organizations of all sizes are at risk from nation-states, hacktivists, organized crime, and malicious and accidental insider threats. Endpoint security is often seen as cybersecurity’s frontline, and represents one of the first places organizations look to secure their enterprise networks.
As the volume and sophistication of cybersecurity threats have steadily grown, so has the need for more advanced endpoint security solutions. Today’s endpoint protection systems are designed to quickly detect, analyze, block, and contain attacks in progress. To do this, they need to collaborate with each other and with other security technologies to give administrators visibility into advanced threats to speed detection and remediation response times.
How endpoint protection works
Endpoint security is the practice of safeguarding the data and workflows
The EPP provides system administrators a centralized console, which is installed on a network gateway or server and allows cybersecurity professionals to control security for each device remotely. The client software is then assigned to each endpoint—it can either be delivered as a SaaS and managed remotely, or it can be installed directly on the device. Once the endpoint has been set up, the client software can push updates to the endpoints when necessary, authenticate log-in attempts from each device, and administer corporate policies from one location. EPPs secure endpoints through application control—which blocks the use of applications that are unsafe or unauthorized—and through encryption, which helps prevent data loss.
When the EPP is set up, it can quickly detect malware and other threats. Some solutions also include an Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) component. EDR capabilities allow for the detection of more advanced threats, such as polymorphic attacks, fileless malware, and zero-day attacks. By employing continuous monitoring, the EDR solution is able to offer better visibility and a variety of response options.
EPP solutions are available in on-premises or cloud based models. While cloud- based products are more scalable and can more easily integrate with your current architecture, certain regulatory/compliance rules may require on-premises security.
Endpoint security components
Typically, endpoint security software will include these key components:
Machine-learning classification to detect zero-day threats in near real time
Advanced antimalware and antivirus protection to protect, detect, and correct malware across multiple endpoint devices and operating systems
Proactive web security to ensure safe browsing on the web
Data classification and data loss prevention to prevent data loss and exfiltration
Integrated firewall to block hostile network attacks
Email gateway to block phishing and social engineering attempts targeting your employees
Actionable threat forensics to allow administrators to quickly isolate infections
Insider threat protection to safeguard against unintentional and malicious actions
Centralized endpoint management platform to improve visibility and simplify operations
Endpoint, email and disk encryption to prevent data exfiltration
Cybersecurity is the collection of measures and practices taken to protect computers,
While an ever-evolving cyberthreat ecosystem transforms and molds the functions of cybersecurity, the very core of cybersecurity always involves safeguarding information and systems from harmful cyberthreats.
