Endpoints used to be safely operated behind a network perimeter. However, the rapid growth of remote access to corporate resources, cloud-based applications, and social media by desktops, laptops, smartphones, and tablets means that the endpoint is now the new perimeter. Endpoints are being attacked in a variety of ways, including email-based phishing, ransomware, malware and drive-by downloads from web surfing.
Given that endpoints often store large quantities of corporate data, and also contain virtually everything that attackers need to gain entry into corporate networks, robust endpoint protection is a critical element in any corporate security infrastructure.
