In today’s highly technical world, endpoint devices are everywhere. Studies show that 61 percent of businesses have 1,000 or more endpoints users on their networks*. They are a critical part of daily business – and are also targets to a wide range of cyberthreats.
Endpoint devices, such as employee workstations, laptops, tablets, and smartphones, connect to and communicate with an organization’s network. Because they are intertwined within an organization, it often only takes successfully exploiting one endpoint for threat actors to carve a path through an organization’s network to cause harm.
As often is with cybersecurity, the best defense of endpoints is a good offense. This guide to securing your endpoints will highlight common threats and recommend best practices to improve your company’s security posture.
