Endpoint Security


Total Endpoint Security

As companies grow increasingly dependent on the Internet as a means to conduct business, security threats loom ever larger. Penetration from the outside, denial of service attacks and theft xof transaction information are all top concerns for any company conducting business over the Internet. With the proliferation of remote access and wireless networks the user’s workstation or endpoint has become a target area for entry point for malware into the corporate network.

Current endpoint security solutions typically perform security procedures when a VPN client is engaged or the user is on the corporate LAN. However, employees often use their workstations when not connected to a VPN. For example, employee workstation of teleworkers utilizing “always on” DSL and Cable connections may be used for general internet use when not connected to the corporate VPN. These remote PCs may put protected networks at risk by allowing viruses and worms to access unprotected machines, which in turn may infect a company when returning to a protected environment. Companies should therefore insist on installation of software patches and AV signatures prior to allowing an employee to access the corporate network.

Another concern of corporations is employee use of company assets for unapproved purposes, such as loading unauthorized applications onto company workstations. These “rogue” applications can impact bandwidth utilization.
