Endpoint Security

Endpoint security is a centrally managed solution that safeguards networks and all their endpoints against threats, with the help of various security tools.

More precisely, endpoint security solutions leverage a client/server model to protect various endpoints.

  • The server has a master instant of the security program, and the endpoints (clients) have agents installed within them.

  • In the process of keeping the endpoints secure, these agents communicate to the server, the activities of the respective device, which include the status of the device, user authentication/authorization, and so on.

Anti-virus

  • Anti-virus
    • Typically, anti-virus is a single program responsible for scanning, detecting and removing malware, spyware, adware, ransomware and other such malicious entities.

    • Anti-virus solutions are installed on individual devices such as desktops, laptops, smartphones, and on servers.

    • They run in the background and periodically scan device directories and files for malicious patterns, indicating the presence of malware.

    • The software utilizes its database of virus definitions and signatures to analyze if there are executable malicious codes within it.

    • It blocks or quarantines files, if it comes up with a match.
