Advanced Protection Techniques

Endpoint security is a need and its motivation is to ensure gadgets (endpoints) on a system. In any case, the expansion in complex digital assaults calls for more propelled devices and strategies for better endpoint security insurance.

An ordinarily powerful Endpoint Security Platform would contain the accompanying components:

  • Control with auto-sandboxing
  • Web URL Filtering
  • Firewall
  • Antivirus
  • Cloud-based File Lookup Services
  • Have Intrusion Protection System (HIPS)
  • Prepare Behavior Analysis

While various devices and methods are accessible, endpoint security can be further upgraded with:

  • Arrange Access Control (NAC)
  • Information Loss Prevention (DLP)
  • Information Destruction

Information is put away on endpoints and clients associate with the undertaking system from various perspectives. Consequently, the system must be shielded from perhaps powerless gadgets (endpoints) or gadgets that are as of now tainted and bargained. What’s more, there are a wide range of sorts of gadgets that require distinctive sorts of security.

Network Access Control (NAC)

Considering users, devices and BYOD, NAC is an important technology for admission control. Security policies are defined that ensure that an endpoint meets defined compliance levels before they are allowed to connect to the enterprise network. Non-compliant devices are blocked. This feature ensures that the endpoints are safe from malware, and if infected they are not allowed to connect to the network that may compromise other devices. The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), RSA and Active Directory are utilized by NAC to coordinate the working of the firewalls and devices – routers and switches. This defines who is allowed network access and who is not. Better security is ensured. NAC can also be integrated with mobile device management (MDM) technologies to check mobile device security.

Data Loss Prevention (DLP):

DLP tools can be integrated into endpoint protection suites or can be used as a separate cloud-based tool. These tools protect the data on devices from unauthorized malicious users trying to access or steal the data. It helps prevent sensitive data from being transferred out of the network. Automatic disabling of devices can be triggered when suspicious data transfer activities occur. DLP tools can be incorporated into mobile device management solutions for ensuring better security of mobile devices.

Data Destruction:

Inevitably data has to be stored on endpoints (including mobile devices). Typically encryption should be implemented in all devices though it may not be possible for all devices. However, when devices get lost, stolen or are reassigned to another user or project, then the data on the device has to be destroyed – completely deleted.

When data on hard disk drives and flash drives are deleted through normal commands, the data actually does not get deleted. This data can be recovered with easily available software tools. If sensitive enterprise data falls into the wrong hands then it can have severe implications. Hence, the hard disk drives and flash drives must be correctly sanitized using data deletion tools to completely destroy the data. The Data Destruction tool can be included as part of the MDM to ensure enhanced endpoint security.
