With the shift to remote work and adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) and mobile devices, the endpoint has become a renewed focus for cyber threat actors. Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) solutions provide increased security to corporate endpoints by leveraging the latest in security technology.
AEP solutions integrate advanced security technologies into a single solution, enabling it to more effectively prevent, detect, and respond to threats to the endpoint. Some of the security functions included in AEP include:
Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR): EDR solutions analyze security data from multiple sources and use it to identify potential threats. In addition to generating security alerts, EDR tools can automatically take action to prevent, mitigate, or eradicate a threat, such as terminating malicious processes or quarantining an infected computer from the network.
AEP solutions are designed to enhance an organization’s endpoint security. Key benefits include:
While AEP solutions may share some features with older endpoint security tools, they offer access to advanced technologies and improved security integration. Some of the key features of AEP solutions include:
