Why Every Organisation Needs Endpoint Security…!!
“According to Check Point Research, cyberattacks increased 50% year-over-year between 2020 and 2021, with each organisation facing 925 cyberattacks per week globally. It is estimated that on average of 30,000 websites are hacked every day. In fact, a company falls victim to a cyberattack every 39 seconds and more than 60% of organisations globally have experienced at least one form of cyberattack.”
Cyberattacks are constantly on the rise and as the attacks become increasingly sophisticated, so must our defences…. enter Endpoint Security. But before we delve into the importance of Endpoint Security and why every organisation should be using it, let’s first talk about what exactly Endpoint Security is.
What Is Endpoint Security?
Not to be confused with Antivirus (which only secures the device it sits on), Endpoint Security is the practice of protecting user devices such as desktops, laptops mobiles and tablets from malicious actors or campaigns. Administrators can protect and manage all connected endpoints from a central location.
Why Is Endpoint Security So Important?
With almost half of the workforce now working remotely or on a hybrid model, on-site corporate security is no longer sufficient to protect endpoint devices. Employees are using their home networks, public Wi-Fi and hot spotting from their phones to connect to the corporate network meaning there are more vulnerabilities to protect.
Cybercriminals don’t rest and are always looking for new ways to breach defences and take advantage of users. Without adequate security, users can unknowingly give up access to company data or even an entire corporate network. Effective endpoint protection that can be centrally managed is crucial to make sure employees are protected, no matter where they are or what device they are using.
