Especially in times of home office and concepts like BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) it is increasingly important to protect these devices outside of the company networks. This can be an end device such as a PC, laptop, tablet smartphone, but also a printer, scanner or copier, which must be directly protected from malware such as viruses, ransomware or exploitation of security vulnerabilities or unauthorized access.
Endpoint Security is more than just software
Endpoint security additionally addresses preventive, detective and reactive measures, such as malware protection, sandboxing, client firewalls, application control, URL filtering or even device management of peripheral devices.
Artificial intelligence creates more security
Due to the limited protection level of purely signature-based endpoint security solutions, malicious codes or attack methods are only detected if they are already known. The artificial intelligence of Palo Alto Cortex XDR, on the other hand, enables new types of attack patterns and methods to be detected and prevented independently using a behaviorist approach.
