What is Endpoint Protection?
Endpoint protection refers to the security solutions that are used to address issues pertaining to endpoint security. Thus, it can be defined as securing and protecting endpoints against all kinds of attacks, zero-day exploits and those inadvertent data leakages that happen due to human errors.
Endpoint protection is what helps prevent targeted attacks and APTs ( advanced persistent threats), which can’t be prevented using antivirus solutions alone. Endpoint protection solutions provide enterprises with a full spectrum of security solutions that can be managed centrally and which helps secure endpoints- servers, workstations etc connected to endpoints, plus the many endpoint devices.
Why Endpoint Protection Software?
Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP) is an integration of antivirus, firewall, anti-spyware, application control featuring host intrusion prevention techniques – all in one single platform. It would be defined more comprehensive when additional security measures like patch management, vulnerability assessment and configuration capabilities are incorporated for better and proactive protection. It ensures preventing malware attacks and processes protection of data file and disk encryption and device management which may be the best deal to empower Enterprise Security.
How Comodo Solves the Malware Problem
Comodo is uniquely positioned in the security space with 85 million consumer endpoint users and a firm standing as the no. 1 certificate authority in the world (1). This combination allows Comodo’s default-deny platform to efficiently identify known good files (whitelist) based on the world’s largest repository of digitally signed applications, application publishers and even operating systems processes. In contrast, the 85 million consumer endpoint users ensure that the Comodo Threat Research Labs (CTRL) can provide the Comodo Client with the known bad files (blacklist). All unknown files are automatically run in containment, while an accelerated verdict is reached, both increasing usability and protecting the endpoint from being compromised.
How Comodo AEP can prevent your endpoints from Ransomware Attack
Comodo has this Containment technology that prevents virus to take control of the system. This unique technology creates a virtual environment, registry, hard drive and even virtual COM interface. If the malware happens to sneak into your computer, it will be continue to perform its nefarious activity in the virtual environment. You systems’s original document and files will not be infected. Comodo’s Containment technology just keeps a tab on all kinds of infection.
