Market Report: Cutting-Edge Defense Tactics For Network Endpoints

Data has historically been contained to the computing devices that accessed it within the enterprise campus perimeter. The traditional network endpoint was isolated to desktop PCs, laptop computers and most server components that attached to the organization’s network. In recent years, a dramatic increase in mobile devices has broadened the endpoint definition. Mobile devices require access to a company’s data anytime and from anywhere. With the addition of always-connected, sensor-powered Internet of Things (IoT) devices, the range of endpoints can now include everything from IP cameras to smart vending machines to biomedical devices.

The original definition still holds true to this day; however, the presence of more sophisticated devices requesting an IP address from the network, and often without a user interface, also suggests that the approach to endpoint defense must change. Bi-directional communications means the endpoint can be an entry point into a network or application. What does the device need to communicate with? Does it require internet connectivity? Does a device with an embedded OS provide some form of protection?

All endpoint devices are not created equally. This Cyber Security Hub Market Report highlights:
