What Is an Endpoint Solution?

Endpoint solutions are a security measure that goes beyond simple antivirus software to prevent and detect malware attacks. Endpoint solutions secure an endpoint, like an employee’s stolen cellphone, by monitoring systems, detecting a threat, and predictively containing the threat, and then moving forward with remediation (fixing anything that was damaged.)  Here’s a simple guide.

 

Endpoint Solution Meaning

An endpoint is simply the end of a data communication channel. An endpoint solution generally references a security measure that safeguards the endpoints for data communication channels from hackers and malicious threats. Per Wikipedia:

“Endpoint security or endpoint protection is an approach to the protection of computer networks that are remotely bridged to client devices. The connection of laptops, tablets, mobile phones, and other wireless devices to corporate networks creates attack paths for security threats.”

 

What is an endpoint solution program or EDR?

An endpoint solution program, or Endpoint Detection and Response, is a security service, product, or software suite that secures a company’s data communication channels. Per Carbon Black:

“Endpoint security protects desktops, laptops, servers, and fixed-function devices from malicious internal and external threats… Endpoint security defends what is now thought of as an enterprise’s perimeter – the devices that are the gateways into the network – from known as well as unknown threats. These threats, which include malware and non-malware attacks, attempt to steal data, destroy infrastructures, or cause financial damage.”

 

What are important endpoint solution metrics?

Here’s an amazing statistic from a Carbon Black study:

“… An average computer was a target of attacks less than one time a month in early 2017. By the end of 2017, that number of attacks rose by 328% to three attacks per month…. Consequently, an organization with 10,000 endpoints could see approximately 1,000 attacks a day… In 2018, it’s expected that endpoints attacks will increase even more, as the number of attacks on the protected endpoints of Carbon Black’s customers’ is growing at a rate of 13% each month.”

 

What are leading endpoint solutions ranked by price?

The most common endpoint solutions that we implement for clients are Check Point and Nuspire. The best way to determine which endpoint solution is best for your company’s needs is to schedule a free endpoint security consultation with an experienced security consultant.

 

Check Point SandBlast Agent

Check Point endpoint security includes data security, network security, advanced threat prevention, forensics, endpoint detection and response (EDR), and remote access VPN solutions… Check Point’s entire endpoint security suite can be managed centrally using a single management console.”

 

Nuspire

Nuspire NuSecure will “continuously manage your business’ endpoints 24×7 with endpoint detection and response (EDR), Nuspire’s SIEM technology and always-on managed detection and response (MDR).”

 

FireEye

FireEye protects your organization’s desktops, laptops, and servers from security breaches with intelligence led protection, detection and response.

 

Fortinet FortiClient

FortiClient strengthens endpoint security through integrated visibility, control, and proactive defense. With the ability to discover, monitor, and assess endpoint risks, you can ensure endpoint compliance, mitigate risks, and reduce exposure. FortiClient proactively defends against advanced attacks.

 

What’s the best anti-virus endpoint protection?

If we had to pick our favorite, we’d recommend Checkpoint SandBlast Agent for two reasons: 1) Check Point integrates easily with on-premise data centers and modern cloud data centers, and 2) Check Point easily integrates with Active Directory.

 

Do I need an endpoint security consultant near me?

Maybe. The most important factor is experience and effective workflow, whether in-person, on-site, virtual, or off-site. That said, we think working with an endpoint security consultant near you is an advantage. This will allow your endpoint security consultant to better communicate with existing IT teams, and better understand your current information architecture. A non-local endpoint security consultant becomes a good option if they follow security best practices, and have an established virtual workflow. Why? Location is less significant when virtual workforce tools are effectively adopted by consultant and client, whether a small business or global enterprise. Plus, on-site specialists can become costly. Bottomline, look for an endpoint security consultant who offers an excellent communication process, clear workflow, and custom security solution for your business.
