Why Businesses Need Endpoint Protection
When you work to secure endpoints, it means you are securing any end-user devices used by members of your organization. These could be computers, mobile devices, or anything that serves as a point of access to your business’s data and information. Cybersecurity companies who offer SIEM services know that this where hackers target a lot of their efforts.
This is what makes endpoint protection so important and why cybersecurity companies are constantly working to up their game when it comes to entry point access.
There is an increasing trend for businesses to have a BYOD (bring your own device) policy. Employees are also more able to work away from the office so long as there is an available wifi connection. While these policies and practices are much more convenient and can make the workflow run much more smoothly, the use of different wifi networks and unrecognized devices can leave endpoint access very vulnerable to cyber criminals.
Perhaps because of these recent trends, threats have begun to appear less from the network and more from these endpoints. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to change how your organization gets things done. However, there are steps you can take to increase your security against these types of attacks.
By implementing an SIEM solution, you can have multi-layered security that alerts you to breaches throughout your organization. One of the advantages of SIEM is that it works across a variety of systems, not just endpoint devices. This means that you can also have systems like firewalls, servers, IPS, and proxies protected while defending your endpoints.
