Endpoint security options are increasingly popular thanks to the fact that this software does not have to be installed individually on all your machines. No more pesky updates that should be completed individually.
All these benefits may make you think they come at a price. However, choosing a multi year plan allows you to save over traditional antivirus software.
Check out the best on offer in this list, with detailed descriptions of each solution’s strengths and weaknesses.
After years of recommending and installing a variety of other well known security solutions, I started implementing Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud (SEP) for all my clients. Following installations, the instances of viruses, malware and breaches dropped to nearly zero. That means that downtime and calls to IT dropped dramatically as well. Better yet, the lightweight client app does not drain system resources and performance like other products.
The cloud dashboard is easy to use and provides tools for setting up groups and policies to manage different systems differently. Overall, the price to performance is extremely competitive and the ROI is significantly better than any other solution I’ve used over the past decade.
The Bitdefender Gravity Security for endpoints closely tracks behavior and discover attack approaches allow GravityZone to detect, prevent, and stop threats that both traditional endpoint and so-called “next-gen AV” defenses tend to miss. It then automatically starts the processes to keep businesses running normally, including rolling back malicious changes.
The Dell Biometric Security Survey found that full-time working adults consider built-in security features to be one of the three most important factors when choosing a work PC. In fact, nearly 80% believe having security features built into their work PC helps keep their company’s data safe. To address these concerns, the Dell Latitude portfolio of notebooks adds new layers of enterprise-class security that saves users the hassle of remembering passwords and offers quick and secure sign-on.
Dell Latitude notebooks can be equipped with fingerprint readers built into the power button and Windows Hello-capable IR cameras for a more trusted, biometric authentication. Additionally, many systems can be equipped with Dell SafeScreen, new camera privacy shutters and FIPS 201 contacted Smart Card Reader or contactless Smart Card Reader with SafeID to protect user credentials. The laptops also support Dell’s SafeBIOS utility which gives users added visibility to BIOS changes by verifying the firmware’s integrity securely in the cloud.
As the modern workforce’s computing needs have changed, the Dell Latitude portfolio of notebooks has evolved to allow workers to be more secure, no matter how or where they work.
Nyotron has pioneered a new threat-agnostic approach to protecting laptops, desktops and servers while providing precise visibility into cyber attacks. Its PARANOID solution automatically whitelists all trusted operating system behavior and rejects everything else. This concept replaces Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) with Endpoint Prevention and Response (EPR).
Nyotron’s approach is not just unique; it approaches the problem of cybersecurity from the exact opposite angle vs. the rest of the industry. For three decades, the security industry has employed the negative security model, which tries to define all “bad” and stop it. However, “badness” is practically infinite, so by focusing on the bad, it is impossible to solve the problem of malware with a high degree of confidence. However, what is “good” is a much smaller, finite subset, especially if defined as the legitimate behavior of the operating system. That’s why, by leveraging the Positive Security model, Nyotron is able to achieve threat-agnostic, deterministic protection. No other company has been able to take the Positive Security model to the OS level. PARANOID doesn’t just detect attacks after they’ve evaded your frontline defenses; it prevents damage from taking place, including data encryption, exfiltration, MBR modification and much more. No static file analysis, signatures, baselining, threat hunting, cloud connectivity or ML/AI models are needed.
