What are the Best Endpoint Protection Solutions for Your Business Size?

Discover a better way to secure your remote devices and protect the data on them, with the right managed endpoint protection service.

Endpoint protection is becoming mainstream and can scale to meet your organisation’s size, with the right support from an MSP

Where once we had one work device each, now we might have three or more on the go. In today’s evolving workplace, businesses need to be more aware of the importance of endpoint protection and find solutions that are more proactive than traditional anti-virus products.

The concept of anti-virus has been front-of-mind for many years, but now organisations need to do more than just stop viruses. With endpoint protection you can ensure malware is not getting through, and include other security services such as firewalling and web application control in a single solution.

Endpoint protection also allows corporate policies to extend into personal devices.

In this blog we look at how endpoint protection is no longer a niche product – rather, it’s something all organisations of all sizes should be using to run their business. Endpoint protection is now viable even for smaller enterprises, because with an MSP you won’t need a big capital investment to get the benefits. This approach delivers the best endpoint protection for small business.

Getting the best advice

It’s vital to get the best advice when it comes to endpoint protection, as you’ll need to find something that works specifically for your business. Why is this the case?

If you look at anti-virus, the majority of products do the same thing. But with endpoint protection you’ll need to know your needs are covered, as there is a huge uptake of SaaS products and websites that can have malicious payloads such as CryptoLocker.

Ideally, endpoint protection will have the intelligence to hook into popular services like Office 365. You’ll need products with the features to protect multiple gateways and the end-user experience, which can be impacted in the event of a problem.

If you want to protect all your devices then this also comes with extra challenges. Traditionally everything was Windows-based, but now there are iOS, Mac OS X and Android devices in use. A good endpoint protection product will protect all devices and cloud services with API integration.

Good advisory will also ensure you have the correct policies in place before you transition to endpoint protection. The endpoint protection apps can then be deployed via a management engine.

Security and business benefits of the MSP model

Proper endpoint protection gives peace of mind, as you’ll be able to catch most issues and violations in an automated way.

A complete vulnerability management solution should put your business in a good place, and staff will be confident their data is protected. Endpoint protection can also be extended to data loss prevention (DLP) and data protection.

Additionally, you can get better BYOD enablement with an endpoint protection system in place.

The MSP model takes the concern away from the IT department, and with an experienced third party responsible for endpoint protection, you can be confident that the most complete solution for your needs will be selected.

An MSP takes away the research component of product selection and solution design, and the management component of endpoint protection benefits from the MSP’s industry knowledge to manage, maintain and deploy the product.

Any problems? With an MSP, you can get remediation action for either client apps or the management software.

Endpoint solutions are bound to become standard, given the way devices are being used in today’s increasingly remote work environment.

A great modern architecture will combine the best endpoint protection solutions, cloud access security and data protection.
