Benefits of Endpoint Security &
It’s Necessary Measures
Words such as endpoint security and endpoint countermeasures are attracting
attention. What is an endpoint and why do you need security measures for it? I will
explain it along with effective measures.
What is Endpoint Security?
Endpoint security refers to implementing security measures that assume cyberattacks
such as malware infection or internal fraud on end devices including servers, PCs, and
smartphones. Originally, the term "endpoint" means "endpoint" or "endpoint", and here
it refers to the end device connected to the internal and external networks used by the
company. Endpoints are diversifying these days. In addition to servers, desktop PCs,
notebook PCs, and terminals with virtual desktops, smartphones and tablets can be
mentioned. In addition to those used in-house, endpoints also include terminals used
on the go or for remote work. Therefore, it is necessary to consider the security for the
endpoint according to the specifications and usage of each terminal.
Importance of Endpoint Security
Think again about why you need endpoint security.
First of all, the environment surrounding endpoints has changed from a few years ago.
While the spread of Wi-Fi (wireless LAN) has improved convenience, there is an
increasing risk of interception of communication content if public Wi-Fi is used easily.
The use of cloud services and cloud applications has also increased significantly, and
if their account information is stolen, important data may be damaged.
With the increase in remote work such as working from home due to work style reforms
and the development of the mobile environment, the number of company-supplied
notebook PCs taken out is also increasing. Along with this, there are naturally more
opportunities to use the Internet as well as internal networks and VPNs (Virtual Private
Networks). The current situation is that threats cannot be prevented simply by
implementing security measures at the boundary between the Internet
