Endpoint device is any electronic equipment that can be used to access or provide the network resources and services such as applications, files, printers, etc. Endpoint includes, but not limited to, Workstation, Server, Laptop, and Smart phone. Because those devices allow people to interact with the information systems, they represent the main target for hackers, and source of vulnerabilities.
With advanced techniques and tactics bypassing security measures in place, it becomes difficult to protect the endpoints with only anti-virus and firewall controls. Best practices recommend an in-depth defense approach. At CAPTOSEC, this approach is used to effectively reduce the security risks associated with endpoints.
