Endpoint security acts as the vanguard against an enterprise’s battle against cyber attacks. This is because every device that connects to a corporate network is in most cases the first point of penetration for threats and malware. For enterprises to win the battle, they need to find robust solutions to bolster their vanguard. It is due to this phenomenon that enterprises are exceedingly looking into the importance of Endpoint Security.
In this day and age of increased collaboration between devices and cloud-hosted content collaboration platforms, we can witness an exponential growth in an enterprise’s endpoints. Seqrite regularly compiles a comprehensive list of cybersecurity threats for enterprises. A brief look at these reports is good enough to convince enterprise stakeholders that neglecting endpoint security could prove highly destructive. According to the 2017 Ponemon State of Endpoint Security Report, today’s organizations pay a hefty price if they are unable to secure their endpoints – $5 million for a large organization or an average of $301 per employee for every successful attack.
Considering the varied nature of endpoints, enterprises require a unified solution that can provide end-to-end Enterprise Endpoint Security. This is where Seqrite’s Endpoint Security (EPS) solution comes as a breather.
Single window view of endpoint security data
When it comes to large, complex organizations with potentially thousands of endpoints, the solution needs to provide complete visibility and threat protection. Seqrite’s Endpoint Security (EPS) solution provides a web-based graphical console providing a detailed status on the health of the endpoints. Critical security situations such as virus infection, patch vulnerabilities, and others, are displayed for immediate action.
Protection from Ransomware
Ransomware is a threat with significant repercussions for enterprises – it can even lead to immense financial losses and be derogative for a business’ credibility. EPS uses Seqrite’s behavior-based detection technology to proactively detect and block ransomware threats. As an added layer of protection, data is also backed up in secured locations in a timely manner, in case of an attack.
It is important for network administrators to have access to a one-point centralized tool which provides network security status, patch status, application status and also provides application control which stops the execution of unapproved applications on endpoints. EPS offers vigilant monitoring of hardware and software configuration of every endpoint, allowing network administrators to remain updated about any alterations to any systems.
Patch management (PM) can often be ignored when it comes to endpoint security. While it is important to have a robust defense, it can often become outdated if it is not patched and updated properly. PM secures confidential data and prevents the leakage of business secrets to avoid losses. Data at rest can be scanned on endpoints and removable devices.
Apart from the above, Seqrite EPS also offers a multi-layered approach to a network through the following features:
- Detects malicious network activities which exploit application vulnerabilities and prevents intruder attempts.
- Rule-based monitoring of all inbound and outbound network traffic.
- Alerts about port scanning and DDOS attack.
Additional salient features of Seqrite’s Endpoint Security (EPS) –
- Web Filtering
- Application Control
- Vulnerability Scan
- File Activity Monitor
- IDS/IPS Protection
Hence, the above attributes make it quite clear that Seqrite’s Endpoint Security (EPS) solution offers a simple and unified solution, integrating several advanced technologies together for protection against the most advanced cyber threats.
