A Responsible Approach to Endpoint Security

By Enterprise Security Magazine | Tuesday, November 24, 2020

Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) solutions are designed to aid all endpoints across an entire IT ecosystem. It offers an optimal platform to manage a diverse choice of security processes.

FREMONT, CA: Research recently noted that the most common consequence of a security breach is not a malware infection but compromised business information. Data is a commodity that can be bought and sold through both sinister outlets and legal markets in this age. Cyberattacks are no longer planned to be a nuisance; they are the foundation of high revenue-generating industry.

There are three prime methods through which data is compromised on an endpoint:

• The first is through invasive software, like hidden code in websites and applications that gather and distribute information to remote systems witht the users’ knowledge.

• The next method involves manipulating users into innocently granting nefarious actors’ admittance to It resources and devices. This way is most regularly accomplished with phishing schemes that deploy psychological inventiveness rather than technological aptitude.

• The last technique for compromising endpoint devices and data occurs when users dispense the data themselves in an unsecured manner.

To empower holistic visibility—status, configuration, and contextual information should be gathered on devices, network activities, and processes. Intelligence technologies like analytics, machine learning, and language processing should be applied to collect details. Any probable security risks can be swiftly identified, and policy-based automated responses can be instantly implemented.

Data access and distribution controls are also boosted with the overview of strong Identity and Access Management (IAM) competencies. IAM platforms that are risk-based and overseen by policy controls offer a robust first line of defense in any security employment, predominantly if they holistically leverage device data collected by endpoint and security management tools.

Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) solutions are designed to aid all endpoints across an entire IT ecosystem. It offers an optimal platform to manage a diverse choice of security processes. Complete UEM solutions centrally support aptitudes for data collection and analysis, reporting and alarming, and automated response that are the trademark of a responsible endpoint security approach. Solutions in this field are significantly advantaged if they can extend their security management abilities through direct integrations with related platforms or by empowering integrations using an API.
