endpoint security

What is endpoint security?


Endpoint security is securing end users’ devices, such as laptops, desktop computers, and mobile phones, within an enterprise. Keeping endpoints secure is essential because they can be entry points for malicious attacks and exploits. Endpoint security systems have evolved from conventional antivirus software to more comprehensive protection that heavily relies on logs collected from the endpoints. Endpoint security is the battle zone of cybersecurity and is a top priority for organizations seeking to secure their network.

As the volume and maturity of cybersecurity threats grow, more advanced endpoint security solutions are required. Today’s endpoint protection systems are designed to detect, analyze, block, and contain attacks in progress. To do this, they must interact with other security technologies, including logging.

In the world of NXLog

Logs are paramount for endpoint security solutions to be effective. NXLog plays an important role in transferring intelligence from devices to your endpoint security solution as efficiently as possible. It can collect and forward logs to and from any system at blazingly fast speeds. Security is like a chain, and just like a chain, it has many links. Therefore, your system is as secure as its weakest link in the chain.
