Why Do You Need Endpoint Protection?

By May 30, 2022March 30th, 2024No Comments

Today’s enterprises must keep up with the ever-changing technology to protect their assets from cyber threats.  It is becoming increasingly difficult due to the number of devices that connect to an organization’s network. This raises notable concerns over endpoint protection.

Endpoint security is the practice of securing endpoints or entry points of end-user devices such as mobile devices, desktops, and laptops from being exploited by malicious actors and campaigns. The endpoint security systems protect these endpoints on a network or in the cloud from cybersecurity threats.  


Several security measures are implemented by businesses to protect their central servers, which are crucial to the operation and sustainability of the company. At the same time, endpoint devices that connect to the central server are the prime targets for cybercriminals; once compromised, an endpoint can allow a hacker to gain access to your network.

According to an article from Forinet, Hackers launch a cyberattack every 39 seconds, with a daily total of 2,244 attacks. Endpoints are one of the most common targets, given the sheer number of them in use to connect to networks. According to Strategy Analytics insight, there were already 22 billion connected devices in 2018, which is predicted to rise to 38.6 billion devices by 2025 and 50 billion devices by 2030. As a result, Verizon’s threat report found that up to 30% of data breaches involved malware being installed on endpoints.”

Some of the key benefits of an endpoint security approach include:

  1. Protecting all endpoints: As employees now connect via not only a growing number of endpoints but also different types of devices, it is crucial for organizations to ensure they do so securely. They also need to ensure that the data on those devices is secure and cannot be lost or stolen. 
  2. Securing remote working: Since 2020 the rise in device usage is linked to new ways of getting work done, such as bringing your own device (BYOD) and remote working policies. These policies enable employees to be as effective as possible wherever they are and on any device. This can also make it more difficult to ensure users are working securely, thus creating vulnerabilities for hackers to exploit. Protecting the device with an endpoint security platform is crucial.
  3. Sophisticated threat protection: Hackers are deploying more sophisticated attack methods that see them come up with new ways of gaining access to corporate networks, stealing data, and manipulating employees into giving away sensitive information. Endpoint protection is critical to securing the modern enterprise and preventing cybercriminals from gaining access to their networks.
  4. Protecting identity: As employees connect to business systems via various devices and from different networks and locations, the traditional process of protecting the business perimeter is no longer viable. Endpoint security ensures that the business puts security on employees’ devices, enabling them to work safely regardless of how and where they connect to corporate data and resources.
