At QuickProtect we focus on providing real-time protection, blocking viruses, malware, and ransomware. Endpoint protection protects the user’s machine no matter where they are, and includes making copies of critical data offsite and offline — it can’t be affected even if the machine is. This solution is designed to block malicious websites, automatically patch systems, and scan for vulnerabilities.
How Does Endpoint Protection Work?
Endpoint security constantly monitors and protects the entry points of your network, whether that be laptops, desktop computers and mobile devices connected to your server, or sources that upload to your cloud. It goes without saying that the more entry points there are to your network, the more vulnerable your business is to ransomware, hackers, and malicious viruses. Effective endpoint protection platforms (EPP) examine files as they come through entry points. Once the endpoints have been established, the software will authenticate log-ins, apply the policies of the business it’s protecting, and update the endpoints as necessary. With an EPP in place, you and your business have a defense mechanism ready to go at any possible entry to your network.
Cloud Based EPP
Endpoint protection platforms that function from a cloud server rather than locally have an added advantage. Since the EPP has endless space to store its database (think, a reference library) of threats to be detected, this frees the endpoints of storing this information. Since this information is stored in the cloud rather than locally, it makes for faster accessing and examining of data.
What Counts as an Endpoint?
The most common types of endpoints are ones you may interact with daily, such as:
Cloud based servers and apps (PaaS)
In-car smart systems
IoT (internet-of-things) devices such as smart home security, kitchen appliances connected to the internet, and so on.
We were referred to QuickProtect after our current IT provider walked away from us due to a cybersecurity incident they couldn’t handle. QuickProtect assessed our needs and made recommendations that provided immediate protection while significantly improving our overall systems performance and reliability. They collaborated with our team on ideas to better manage our information that increased our efficiency and productivity. They have been there for us 24/7, we couldn’t be happier with the service we receive from QuickProtect and would highly recommend them to other companies struggling to get a handle on their cybersecurity and IT needs.
