End Point Security is a term regularly used to cover a whole range of risks, from hard-drive encryption and anti-virus to computer port control. It is generally focussed on end-user devices, where information can be lost or stolen, or malware introduced to a corporate network or transmitted to a third party causing reputation damage.
Sadly, securing a user’s PC is not just about looking at external threats, it also includes considering what the user may choose to do. A significant amount of security issues arise from an employee maliciously removing information from an organisation.
Anti-virus, or more fully, Anti-Malware, has become a significant factor in any IT security strategy. Many companies now choose to filter inbound and outbound content using an Internet based service. However, it is still necessary to have local security to stop problems introduced directly via USB ports, local email or other removable media.
