Managed Endpoint Security with EDR
Endpoint desktop, laptop and server security is anything but static. The new normal requires protection against ransomware, real-time zero-day malware and advanced persistent threats. Add to that the need for patch management and to protect against Web, email, mobile and data loss and you can see why endpoint security is a quickly evolving and increasingly complex security category. A managed endpoint or managed antivirus solution may be the only way to provide the latest security to combat quickly evolving threats. While it is easy to get inexpensive antivirus solutions, they will not protect against all these threats and make it easy to manage.
Now you can get a managed EDR solution that is part of our Managed Detection and Response (MDR) solution. With MDR, you get our most sophisticated endpoint security including forensics as part of an integrated MDR solution. With these integrated solution, you get management, detection, and incidence response in one managed solution.
Zero Day Attacks, Ransomware & Advanced Persistent Threats
With multiple zero day attacks launched each year, users need real-time protection that rely on behavioral analysis, reputation analysis and knowledge of in the wild exploits. Ransomware is on the rise and effects all company sizes and almost every company. Advanced persistent threats leverage weak desktop and server protection to stealthily steal data. Strong endpoint security is a necessity and a managed endpoint solution will be actively managed to better protection.
Data Loss Protection Stops Accidental Leakage
Preventing data loss is a real challenge with mobile devices, mobile storage, lost laptops and email. While all endpoint solutions attempt to protect you against malware, the ability to protect against data leakage from USB storage or confidential data sent by email is a new protection method that can be included with endpoint security. Scanning outbound emails for social security #s, credit cards or confidential documents may be important to your organization.
Mobile Device Threats Important New Consideration
Mobile devices can be lost or stolen and can have uncontrolled access the internet or networks. Data protection software will encrypt laptops, files or folders and can enhance laptop and endpoint and data security. Additionally, mobile device management can help control iPads, iPhones and other mobile personal devices in case they are lost or stolen.
Managing Endpoint Security Yourself Can be a Major Task
Given the complex nature of the new generation of endpoint security solutions, installing, configuring and managing them can be full time job. Managing endpoints now requires planning for data protection (encryption), DLP, mobile device management, patching, reporting, monitoring and forensic analysis. Outsourcing these tasks with managed endpoint security might will save time and allow your company to focus on growing rather than becoming security experts.
