The cybersecurity landscape has changed dramatically over the last few years, and it is more important than ever to ensure you are protected. We hear a lot of questions as to why our endpoint protection solutions are required.
They can all be considered endpoints. When one considers a traditional home antivirus, the desktop, laptop, or smartphone that the antivirus is installed on is the endpoint.
As part of our managed security service, we have solutions ranging from an Essentials package; which covers what we determine to be, well, the essentials to keeping your business safe from basic threats to Advanced Endpoint Protection which includes advanced tools such as Machine learning, Email filtering, Ransomware protection, and recovery.
If your data is important to you, it is important to someone else. If they can take control of your data by removing your access, they now have something that you want and may be willing to pay for. This is where the term ransomware comes from, they are holding your data for ransom.
Unfortunately, sometimes the answer to this is, just because they can. If your systems are not protected it can be very easy for someone to gain access, and often it is just to prove to themselves or others that they have the skills to do so.
