What do enterprises need from their endpoint protection in today’s threat landscape?

Increasingly, cybersecurity is adopting a prevention-over-remediation mentality. In particular, it means having processes in place to stop threats in their tracks, rather than clean up after them.

This approach is especially necessary in an increasingly complex landscape. Threats today have become significantly more sophisticated. Thus, security teams need to cover all bases at all times. More importantly, they need to be able to do so in real time.

Understanding endpoint protection

Endpoint protection is now particularly prevalent as part of the enterprise cybersecurity strategy. As a refresher, endpoints are the points of access to the enterprise network, which includes devices such as computers and laptops. However, cyberattackers can take advantage of these endpoints to launch an attack on your corporate network. Thus, endpoint protection mitigates the risk of such threats.

Now, having these measures in place are a great start, but as mentioned before, the complexity of attacks has increased significantly. Therefore, a basic endpoint protection solution is just not enough – it must also have real-time capabilities and innovative technology to cope with today’s threat landscape. Working in real time is especially important as it enables organisations to quickly detect and analyse endpoint security. Fortunately, there are a number of solutions available that encompass all of your endpoint protection needs.


Securing the connected world is Webroot. Webroot SecureAnywhere Business Endpoint Protection offers a real-time, cloud-based approach to mitigating malware. It is equipped with machine learning capabilities, predictive behaviour recognition technology, and cloud computing processing power. Therefore, threats are no match for this highly powerful solution, which can stop them in their tracks at the moment of attack.


If you’re overseeing Apple and Windows devices, you should take advantage of Rippling’s offering. Their mobile device management solution takes care of all your real-time endpoint security needs for devices across both operating systems. A huge bonus is that it does so much of the work for you, such as automatic encryption of hard drives, automatically wiping lost or stolen devices remotely, and much more. Better still, you can purchase Apple or Windows devices through the company and they will arrive protected and ready to go. You barely have to lift a finger!


VIPRE’s endpoint security covers all bases through its cloud edition and server edition. Furthermore, VIPRE’s Advanced Active Protection hones in on artificial intelligence capabilities and one of the world’s largest threat intelligence clouds, as well as real-time behaviour monitoring.
